    Artist Statement

    I create classes, workshops, performances, events, trips and more in a safe, nonjudgmental, fun atmosphere.

    I love working with people of all ages and abilities and share with them all the experience I have gained thus far while working in the arts for many years. I’m very fortunate to be surrounded by a loving arts community in my daily work and I continue to challenge myself to learn more so I can give more.

    I use dance as a way to bring people together of all backgrounds and also recognize the healing power that dance has and can greatly enhance one’s life.

    I’m especially thankful to the elders and many artists that have paved the way for me and this generation thru sacrifices so we can enjoy this art form today. They have opened up many doors for us worldwide so we can have a better life.
