What do you enjoy about teaching/your job?

I adore watching people discover a fresh love for dance. Students at Wintec are predominantly new to the discipline of dance, so seeing students faces light up or feeling a great buzz in the air during classes absolutely fills my cup!

What do you love about your area?

In general, I adore teaching and passing on my years of love and experience in movement. 

It is a real joy to use the wonderful techniques I have been offered as a student that has paved the way for me to succeed and watch others build their skill set and passion for performance also.
