I hope my students will learn to love dance, but also use it as a way of creative expression.
As an instructor, attention to detail ranks on the top of my list. The slightest change in a head position, arm, or breathe can make the movement that much more powerful. The greatest feeling comes when all the pieces work together: passion, strength, weakness, determination, confidence, discipline, demand, physicality, mentally, and heart. That is what I take pride in....that, is ballet.
