“One of the best parts about teaching is inspiring children to be their best. I love seeing the joy in my students eyes and the satisfaction that comes from mastering a new skill! Teaching dance is not just about passing on my knowledge and passion in dance but also inspiring children to be their very best”

Teaching is a platform to inspire others. As I teach I share a love and passion for dancing and in return I learn so much about and from, each and every child that is part of the En Pointe family. My aim as a dance teacher is to ensure every student feels special and included in the classes I teach.
