I have been dancing for 19 years and started my journey in ballet dancing. Over the years I continued in additional styles such as jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, and tap. At age 11, I found ballroom dancing at Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Brookfield. I have now been professional for the last 2 and a half years; since 2015. I have won numerous national titles in my other variances of dancing and recently placed 1st in the showcase division at the Fred Astaire World Championships. I have also been offered a scholarship in the Trainee program in Jazz and Contemporary with the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. Currently, I specialize mostly in rhythm dancing consisting of all Latin dances and am qualified in all genres of ballroom dancing. I continued to be inspired by my future self to help keep me focused on becoming a better individual, professional & dancer on a continued basis. To me, the most rewarding part about being an instructor is influencing others to love and share the gift of dance.
My advice to students is to never compare your dancing to someone else. As long as you improve a tad more than yesterday then you’re on the correct path of learning.
