Through my teaching, I cultivate understanding of and enthusiasm for the art and science of dance through a learning-centered approach. My main objective is to empower students to embrace physical and intellectual challenge. I do this by developing specific movement skills and encouraging critical thinking and creative application. I am energized by an honest passion for the form itself and its applications for holistic personal growth.
