About Us

Our Story

I started dancing when I was 2 years old and through the years and careers as a dance teacher, actor, acting teacher and Pilates instructor it has been dancing that has always given me the most enjoyment. I am at my happiest when I am teaching dance whether the students are 3 year olds just beginning to express themselves through dance or the most advanced dancers with years of training behind them displaying their unparalleled strength, expression and beauty.

I watched my mother happily and successfully together with my father operate a dance studio for 37 years until her unexpected passing in 2013. I find it remarkable that after so many years she truly felt inspired to spend the better part of each evening and weekend teaching. I suppose that is what dance does for us.

I feel there is nothing more inspiring and artistically fulfilling than watching a beautiful dancer. It truly lifts the spirit. This is what motivates us as teachers to seek the very best from our students and watch their ability grow and flourish.

As I look to the future I see teaching dance as a career that will fulfill me both professionally, personally, and most of all creatively, for many years to come.
