I've been dancing as long as I can remember. I loved to dance as a child, and I continue to love it as an adult. As I have witnessed, once dance gets into your heart, it's there to stay. People of all ages can learn how to dance, and it's never too late to learn. It is my desire to educate and inspire others to begin or continue dancing. I hope to encourage others to explore and enjoy the many styles of dance.
