I love sharing tap as an artform and great exercise. Students enjoy music, props, exercise, and friendships. Dancers move as chorus and soloists using our mind, body, and soles (souls). Tap is my Specialty!

I love teaching and sharing the art of dance with children and adults. Dance uses your body as a means of expression. It is a nonverbal form of communication.
