Objective
 
My main goal is to stimulate the creativity of people of all ages and teach them to express themselves through dance and music. I feel that in order to achieve this goal, students must learn the firmness of technique, the power of strength and stamina, and the freedom of musicality and rhythm. It is my goal to create well rounded, technically trained, secure dancers and equip them with the tools needed for the modern, professional dance career.
