I'm back! Fresh off the train from New York City!

Classes were challenging and inspiring. Some of my students felt, for the first time, their Super Hero Dancer inside of them; they were doing things they've never done before. This glimpse of how freeing dance can be has instilled within them a new confidence, and fanned a flame inside of them.
