My Story 

 I have been passionate about dancing for as long as I can remember. From a very early age I was always choreographing dances and I knew dancing was my passion. I am Originally from Danville, Virginia and raised in the Newport News area, I began my dancing career at the early age of 18 at Fred Astaire Studios in Newport News. Under the direction of Rick Zilonka and the late Mary Pope. I have cultivated my craft and continued perfecting my skills for over 3 decades. Since that time, I have become a Master teacher in the field of Social Ballroom Dance Instruction. Licensed through the NDTA (National Dance Teachers of America) and registered with the NDCA (National Dance Council of America) and a Master Teacher of the Dancemasters Ballroom Teachers Academy, I love teaching people the art of dance and teaching people how to connect with one another with a skill that will last a lifetime!
