phrase that inspires you: b • confident!
I think one of the most important traits a performer can have is confidence. If you don't believe in yourself then the audience won't either. In both life and dance, being confident will help you push your limits and accomplish things you never thought were possible.
what inspired you to begin dancing?
My aunt was a semi-professional ballerina and always wanted my parents to enroll me in dance classes. They did just that and I've loved it ever since.
what keeps you motivated?
Seeing progress keeps me motivated. I like to set goals and when I look back and see how far I've come, it motivates me to do it all over again!

why do you want to teach dance?
I want to teach dance because I will always remember the impact my former teachers had on me. I want to create an impression on students just like my teachers did with me. I love dancing and seeing the improvement of students who share my passion.
why do you teach at Studio b?
Studio b is my home studio. I was a member of the Studio b Dance Team for 4 years and met some of my best friends at the studio and made some amazing memories. Without Studio b I wouldn't be the dancer or person I am today. I want to give back to the studio that gave so much to me.
I was a member of the very first Studio b Dance Team!
