I base my classes on ABT technique with a focus on placement and proper form. I love to make fun combinations that allow for artistry and lots of épaulement. We can center the class around any area of focus whether that be jumps, turns, pointe, a particular variation, stretching, or just a fun class!
I trained at Gwinnett Ballet Theatre in Lawrenceville, Ga in ballet, jazz, modern, pointe/variations, and partnering for 16 years. I now dance at the University of Georgia and am pursuing a minor in dance. I have trained in vaganova, Balanchine, and cecchetti. I have a passion for teaching and would love to pass on my knowledge and love for dance (virtually or in person)
