As a teacher and speaker, I am dedicated to opening the eyes of others and encouraging them to recognize their truest selves, talents, and ambitions.
For the past twelve years, I have taught numerous dance and coaching seminars, worldwide. I have spread knowledge and wisdom with students at local dance studios and The University at Buffalo, Juilliard, Hobart and Williams Smith College, Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, The American Academy of Ballet, UNLV, Cirque du Soleil, Broadway Dance Center, and Pushing Progress. I also had the chance to teach abroad in Italy, where I was able to exchange culture and information with international artists and students.
I take great pride in designing each class, seminar, and program to fit the needs of the studio, venue, and/or company. I am always eager to share the wisdom and information that I have collected through my years of schooling and personal/ professional experiences with aspiring artists. As a teacher, I feel it is my responsibility to awaken each student to help them discover how to live in their presence, passion, and purpose.
I have long had a natural gift for speaking and have always felt comfortable and confident in front of an audience. I choose to share this gift with others by educating, empowering, and inspiring them through carefully chosen words. It has been said that “words are the life and/or death of another human being” and I strive to breathe life to all those who I address. I have been a spokesperson for The Radio City Rockette’s, on TV for Wingin’ It Buffalo Style, The University at Buffalo, and as a Paybac Speaker in the Clark County School District, here in Las Vegas. I share stories, topics, and motivational lessons to empower others to never give up. I feel blessed to have a voice in this community, especially in creating confidence in today’s youth.
