"I love that the creativity of dance is endless. I'm always on a "choreography high" where I can't stop smiling because I'm so proud of the work the kids have done, and the progress they have made. I love that through dance they learn trust, cooperation, positivity, friendship, and confidence. Basically, I have the best job in the world and I am honored to be in this position!"
