MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

I am passionate about teaching children the art of dance, technique and performance quality after searching down many avenues of the dance industry and never truly feeling I had found my place. Until I started teaching the junior age group and saw how absorbent they were in the classroom and how eager they were to learn and gain new skills and experience. I look forward, every week to getting into my classroom and creating a positive, exciting and passionate environment for these young performers and imagining the big, amazing, exciting opportunities that these children have ahead of them, no matter what path this journey takes them on! 

I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT COACHING

I love working at FPA because I feel this is where I was always meant to be. After sparking my passion for the performing arts in Miss Heidi and Mr Aaron’s classrooms where they taught me confidence, self-love and ambition, where else would I want to pass that energy on to this next generation of performers. I love that I get to come into a place where my heart can sing in the same studio that I get to dance and teach.
