"Dancing is an art that imprints the soul. It is with you every moment, it expresses itself in everything you do." --Shirley Maclaine

  I knew from my very first dance lesson years ago that I would become an instructor. I was so enraptured by the sensations I was experiencing, the expression of emotion through motion, the uninterrupted connection of soul to body forged through dance, that I knew I had to spread this joy through the world! Although I have received instruction from world champions, I truthfully have learned mostly on my own, by keenly observing the many brilliant dancers around Houston, TX. Since then, I have shared my knowledge of dance fundamentals & style with well over a hundred students. Although I have taught elements of advanced style to champion-level competitors, my specialty is teaching complete beginners. I have also placed highly in several dance competitions. At the 2002 South Central Regional DanceSport Championship I won five first place ribbons in International Latin, and at the 2003 Texas Challenge I won second place in the Pre-Championship International Latin category.
