I love dancing and couldn't imagine life without it - even as a little girl my favorite thing in life was dancing. No matter what kind of mood I'm in, dance always brings me joy and makes me happy. I love to see new places and try new things, which isn't always easy with my 5 adorable children who seriously need to stop growing up so fast! I love spending time with them and my family and friends. I love the opportunity I have to teach children from scratch the basics of dance and see them progress and become successful at it - I feel like I have been primed to share this precious gift with others.
