ABOUT

I am passionate about dance and the community it creates. Ever since I can remember I have been movin' and groovin' to music. Being that I've lived in almost every area in the state of Florida (the panhandle, soflo, treasure coast and the west coast), I would consider myself a Florida-based artist. I am very lucky to be working with theatre and dance students at Indian River State College on honing their skills as movers. If you’re interested in learning more about me, keep reading or get in touch!
