What do you love most about teaching?
My joy comes from seeing my students (no matter what age or level) master their craft, whether it’s a step or technique and sharing their excitement from their accomplishments. It’s a true “aha” moment. It’s the little things that grow confidence in their youth. So crucial for stability
What makes you excited to finally teach at ZZ because of Covid and having to move?
I was so disappointed I couldn’t teach at ZZ DANCE due to Covid. I have shared your vision of dancers learning in a loving and healthy climate my entire career. I’m so thrilled to mentor new students at ZZ and watch them flourish confidently.
You’re going on a short trip, and you can only take a backpack… What do you absolutely need to have in there for survival and sanity?
