empower ME Movement


I strive to create an uplifting learning environment where each dancer feels supported, challenged, and individually special. Dance is such an incredibly vulnerable and uniquely demanding sport and art form so I aim to give my dancers the tools to leave each class feeling successful and confident in their abilities and worth. We all need someone to believe in us, and I am that person!
