What inspired me to teach?
I wanted to be able to find a way to keep moving and dancing even after finishing training at the dance studio. Becoming a fitness and music instructor was a way I could keep in touch with those passions.
Why do I teach?
I teach because it allows me to stay in shape and continue doing what I love. It also feels amazing to see how what we teach creates a positive impact on someone else’s life.
What do I teach?
I teach Music Together®, Move with Me, Work Out with Me, and Dance Fitness, although you can sometimes see me subbing other classes at the studio.
I hate oranges and I feel awkward every time someone finds out because that’s apparently a weird thing to hate.
