Dance is a healing and uplifting expression of the human spirit. It is a universal language that allows us a window into ourselves and the cultures of the world. Dancing gives us a sense of wonder about being alive, about being part of a community and being a part of the world we live in. I would like to share my interest and passion for dance in many different ways and with many different people. The more I study and learn, the more I desire to share the gift of dance with those around me.
