When did you start dancing? I started dancing when I was three!
What is your favorite kind of dance? My favorite styles are lyrical and jazz.
What is your teaching philosophy?
My main goal as a teacher is to share with my students my love for dance. I believe that sharing this passion creates committed dancers and an environment, in and out of the classroom, for teachers and students to share in the art form. As a teacher I want to be able to assist and reach out to all my students in the best way possible for them. I want to create a safe environment for my students where I can share my passion for dance with them and also train them to take care of themselves to the best of their ability. I want dance to be an outlet for them that is going to satisfy their physical, emotional, intellectual and social needs while becoming both an accomplished athlete and artist, because I believe dance has the power to do just that.
What is your favorite performance you’ve been in? I have two that stick out in my mind…The first was performing vertical dance out at Vedauwoo last summer in Poetry in Motion. The second was performing in Carmina Burana at UW last fall.
What are your plans for the future? I will graduate from UW with a degree in dance performance in December of 2015. After that I plan to audition for contemporary jazz companies and continue to teach!
What’s your favroite flavor of ice cream? Cookie dough. Definitely.
If you were a super hero, what would be your super power and why? I would want the ability to make a cupcake appear out of nowhere because that would stop any bad guy. No one can be mad when they have a cupcake. And I love cupcakes. 🙂
What was your favorite dance costume you’ve worn? One of my favorites was a long green dress that I wore for a recital dance to a song called Woman’s Work. It is probably one of my favorite dances I have ever done.
