"I am constantly asked what my favorite class and age group is to teach. There is truly no one answer to this. I LOVE THEM ALL! Every style of dance is so different, but intertwined in some way. I love watching bright eyed two-year-olds light up the room through their creativity and imagination, I love seeing a teenager grow in confidence and become a leader, and I love hearing an adult say that they never had the chance to dance as a child and for them this is a dream come true. There's really no two ways about it, I love each and every class and how it makes me grow as a person and teacher. Each class, style, level, and age group brings something different every day and it is a blessing to be able to teach them all!"
