Because I personally have received so many benefits ballroom dancing has to offer, I find great enjoyment in seeing people grow as a dancer. I feel by sharing my thirty plus years of experience and knowledge, I can touch lives far beyond the physical. My mission is to spread the joys of life one dance step at a time.
