Bio: Dance is freedom to me. I've had the privilege of being a part of Team Diva since 2013. After a 5-year stretch of teaching various formats including Cardio Striptease, Booyah Burlesque, Rhythm Bootcamp, Dancers Body, among others at DDS I took a break to focus on my professional career. I'm excited to be back teaching "Let's Dance", a fun format I developed to help those interested in learning choreography in an approachable, easy-to-follow style of class.
I'm the founder and co-director of Mixd Dance Company, a pre-professional dance group that provides training, technique and dance performance opportunities for women in Portland.
Helping dancers grow by sharing my professional dance experience, unique teaching style and innovative training techniques is one of my greatest joys in life. I am also obsessed with learning. Taking classes from my fellow PDX movers or traveling to LA, New York or other random locations replenishes my creative cup and keeps me on my toes. I believe there is always something to learn in any class, workshop or life opportunity -- getting uncomfortable is how we all grow.
My heart is dancing with joy to be teaching at DDS. I'm grateful for the opporutnity to continuing doing what I love, at place that is so special to me.
I hope to see you in class or around the studio!
