Dance is a series of expression created by movement. I love the amazing ability of creating choreography that is relatable. The more we train the more we can express. It takes hard work, dedication, and an open mind. I am extremely happy to share my training and experience to create amazing students and dancers. Famed studios has amazing classes dedicated to not just learning a dance but learning technique.
