Education Mission

In my teaching, my goal is to cultivate a dance community that not only embraces the joy of movement but also enhances kinesthetic awareness, physical fitness, and leadership skills through a comprehensive approach to dance education, addressing the mind, body, and soul. While technical training supports physical development, lessons in dance history and anatomy stimulate intellectual engagement, complemented by collaborative activities, mindfulness practices, and socially-emotionally focused teaching to nourish the soul.
