I have been a Latin, Swing, and Country dancer for 16 years and am fluent in Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, ChaCha, Jitterbug, Charleston, Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues, Country Swing, Two-Step, and Polka. I honed my skills through countless hours on the dance floor in clubs all over the United States and Central America – group and private lessons, workshops, honky tonks, Latin clubs, swing clubs, etc.
I took first place in my only dance competition, then proceeded to retire from competitive dance. I dance and teach others to dance simply because it brings me joy. A group exercise instructor and personal trainer, a former elementary and high school teacher, and a current training coordinator, I have years of experience in coaching and teaching – experience and skills I look forward to bringing with me to the Helena community as a dance instructor.
