Dance is what I love. I love the freedom of movement and expression, the emotion it can create, and the joy of performing. But more than that, I love teaching. I started dancing at a very early age and over the years, those once a week lessons turned into three lessons, then five, then my classes, workshops, and conventions, on top of classes that I was asked to teach. I was a very happy young dancer—my parents often joked that they should move my bed to the studio, because that’s where I spent the most time.
I danced my way through school earning many titles, awards, and honors along the way. I served as captain and choreographer of my high school team, as a member of the Utah All State dance team, I won several state solo titles, and was a top ten ranked national soloist, all while still competing with and teaching at my local dance studio.
