“I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to share one of my greatest passions with eager and energetic young students; to pass on my love for dance and see them discover theirs. We have the best students at The Dance Foundation – they are confident, thoughtful and creative. I cannot imagine a better place to ‘work.’ And, now, it is a joy to see my own children’s faces light up in the studio!”
