Dance has been my life since as far back as I can remember. I love being on stage, but I also love developing the next generation of performers. 

I am a senior in high school, but I’ve been teaching at ATB since I was 11. Yes, that said 11. Parents often ask me what my favorite style is and the answer is easy - all of them. Each style has helped me achieve success and gotten me to where I am today as a teacher and a student. 

I love teaching at ATB because the kids are so fun to be around. I have an amazing opportunity to help them grow as a dancer, but what they don’t know is they help me in return. They remind me daily what it’s like to try something new, what it’s like to struggle on a step, and what it takes to be patient. Together, we are a team and that’s what it means to be part of the ATB family. 

Knowing I played a role in helping these kids achieve their goals is indescribable. I hope my students learn dance, but even more, I hope they learn to do it while having fun. That’s all that matters!
