Teaching philosophy: My goal as a teacher is to foster an environment that is open and enjoyable, as well as disciplined. To encourage the student to grow as an artist, use space well/intelligently with a strong emphasis on alignment.
What else do you want your dancers to know? I really want my students to enjoy dance first. If you love it, everything else gets easier.
