I've always enjoyed dancing. Dancing has given me so many positive experiences and helped me through all stages of my life. I wanted to be able to share those feelings with other people through teaching.
My first day there was a dress up party based on the board game Life. Joey asked me when I was a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said a Pilot. He managed to find me the perfect costume pilot costume. Not only did I get to dress up on my first day but I also got to work with the amazing Lola Volair on my favorite dance Argentine Tango. I couldn't believe this was my job.
The most rewarding part of this job is seeing students reactions when they've accomplished something difficult. They work so hard and when it clicks together they glow with pride!
Every day is different. We have so many vibrant personalities that even when one of us isn't feeling well or is down there is always someone there to pick you up. The energy in the studio is contagious, it's hard not to laugh when your here!
A family. Many of our students call this our second home.
The first time I had a wedding couple demo their first dance at a party. It was a challenging Viennese Waltz and they were beaming and he was even singing to her! It melted my heart.
I love pickles. So much that I don't even buy them for my house cause I'll finish the whole jar in one day.
starbucks supervisor, waitress, bartender, valet, farmer's market, baby sitter, french teacher. I was a jack of all trades.
Their teaching style. They have been around long enough to have tried every teaching technique and they make a system that makes it easy for the teacher and the student to learn any dance.
