dancer - choreographer - instructor


I'm passionate about helping individuals and groups learn to dance in a personalized and fun way


I love teaching intensives, partner classes, body movement classes, group classes, weekenders, and congresses.

Private Lessons

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned dancer, I can customize a lesson plan tailored to you. Learn faster with personalized attention and individualized feedback.

Performance Coaching (individual or team)

I can help clean up an existing routine, making it more dynamic and presentable to the audience, emotional, and more technically clean. I can also create choreography or help with creative blocks.

Wedding Choreography

I can create a dynamic piece to showcase on your special day or just a simple moment where you and your partner feel connected during your first dance. I can also teach choreography or a fun dance lesson for all the wedding attendees. 

Dancing Is My Passion

Dancing has been a part of my life since I began taking my first steps. My earliest memories date back to being on the tip of my toes dancing ballet or learning to tap my feet at just 2 years old. Learning Jazz soon followed. This musical influence came from growing up in a musical household, where my father was a ballroom dancer entertainer, and exposure to partner dancing came naturally. I eventually followed in his ballroom footsteps, and at the age of 11, I began training mambo.

One day later in life, serendipity brought me into a Latin dance club, and my life changed completely. I fell in love with the experience—madly, deeplymarking the beginning of a wonderful career. I soon began directing Alma Boston’s bachata team for 5 seasons. Since then, I have traveled the country performing, teaching, and training in various formsincluding ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, modern, Latin, and African dancing.

As a queer female lead and follow, I have become a major advocate for individual empowerment and expression. I strive to give my students the technical foundation they need and to inspire them to explore individual creativity. Passion, energy, and connection are inseparable elements of my performances and social dancing. Each day inspires me to push the limits of Latin dance in my choreography while forever remaining an open-minded student.

Real Results

I'm grateful for all the people I get to work with and all the love they have shared:

She so clearly loves what she does, and passes her passion on to everyone around her through her unique and personalized teaching style, infectious laugh, and warm acceptance of everyone just as they are.
