empower ME Movement


My philosophy is to provide my students with a strong foundation of consistent strength training and flexibility in order to ensure the safety and the development of all dancers. I have a passion for helping dancers reach their goals and achieve skills they only dreamed of in an encouraging and safe environment.

“Success doesn’t come from what a dancer does occasionally but what they do consistently.”
