is an acrobatic sporting discipline which combines some of the skills of artistic gymnastics on the floor.



My philosophy is to educate, inspire, and create passion through proper technique and terminology with a contemporary knowledge of how the dance industry is evolving. 

1st American "jazz dancer" was Joe Frisco around 1910 in Vaudeville. Jazz has evolved into many styles which is important to experience them all for a well rounded education

started in the 20th Century when Isadora Duncan broke away from ballet. Since, contemporary has many different styles, having a well rounded education in all types of dance is recommended. 

Originated in Italian Renaissance. I believe ballet terminology and technique are essential to a well rounded dance education



Jazz/Hip Hop

is characterized as dance using specific shoes to create percussion sounds. Students will enjoy creating rhythmic sounds to their favorite songs
