No matter your skillset, experience, or background, passion will take you far in life! Growing up, I was always told that my passion for dancing shined through my performances. This is something I've carried into all areas of my life. When dance meets you with challenges, passion will help you to grow and have fun!
Why do you teach dance?
I love working with kids and teenagers and sharing my passion for dance with them. When I was growing up, I admired my dance teachers so much and wanted to be just like them. While sharing technical skills, I also strive to be a positive role model and influence for younger girls.
When did you begin in dance?
I started dancing at four years old with a ballet / tap combination class and never stopped!
What keeps you motivated?
When I start feeling tired of burnt out from dancing, I remember that I've been blessed to be gifted with the ability to dance and have an amazing creative outlet!
What is your professional background?
I graduated from Purdue University in May of 2020 with a BA in Public Relations and Strategic Communication. I work at a local church full-time doing communication, social media, and digital marketing.
Why do you teach at Studio b?
Throughout my time at Purdue, I heard amazing things about Studio b. I love that Studio b focuses on technique, community, and a positive environment.
