Quote: “I find that dance not only satisfies my creative side but also feeds my passion for learning - in addition to helping people discover and enjoy dance, I am also continually ’in class’ with my partner as we train and evolve. While I have some students who are with me for only a short time, I also have students I have been teaching for many years, and watching their growth and their satisfaction increase is extremely rewarding and satisfying.”
