See what I've been up to in past few years and what exciting new things are coming soon!!

News
I was in Florida this month teaching at the Orlando Performing Arts Institute.  I taught three workshops where I set two pieces of choreography on students of multiple levels and ages.  Below is Too Darn Hot.  It was posted on YouTube Orlando PAI director Sherlee Glomb.
While I was in Florida, I also taught a day of Master Classes at Stage Door Studios in Sarasota.  To the left is "Steppin Out With My Baby" performed by the juniors and posted by owner/artistic director Jill Lynch.  Don't worry about the yelling...lol.  It's an inside joke I have with the students.  See the Teaching page located under the Testimonials link to read what they both thought of my classes.

Shot some instructional tap videos this month for danceteacherweb.com.

This is a fantastic website for dance teachers to refresh and get new ideas and teaching tools.  I'm also scheduled to teach at their convention in Las Vegas August 8 - 11, 2011.  Hope to see you all there!!!

I made my second trip to Guayaquil, Ecuador to teach at Danzas Jazz Escuela!  Danzas Jazz was the first studio to bring Jazz Dance to Ecuador.  I was the first teacher to bring Musical Theater Jazz!!!  I taught more classes and they were bigger than the first time.  I guess the word had been spread.  I hope to return next year and continue to build my relationship with this fantastic school and it's amazing faculty and students.  They are a breath of fresh air and always eager to learn.  I love you all!!!

Just booked my flight to Guatemala to teach for 5 days Apirl 8 - 11, 2011!

Taught a fantastic group of students today from Ohio State University.  They are in the Arts Scholars Program and they were a joy to be in the studio with!  I hope to work with them again soon!!

Parted ways with Broadway Dance Center this month.  My students wanted me to keep teaching so I rented studio space and started my own classes!  It's building fast!  Hope you can join us!  Check out the Schedule page of this site for more information!
