Aunna (Marie)

Hello everyone! My name is Aunna (Marie) and my nickname is NaNa. You are more than welcome to address me as either Aunna (Ah-Nah) or NaNa.

I was first introduced to dance during my early childhood years. Guess what? I hated it with all my heart! I know. I hear the gasps but that is not the end of the story. As I grew and learned more about myself, I also discovered my individuality. It was during this time that I rediscovered dance and the freedom of expression it offered me.

Since then I have danced both recreationally and competitively. I have also been a student dance teacher. My love of dance comes in the forms of Pointe, Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Jazz, Pom, Hip Hop, and Tap. I truly love dance now with all my !

Now that I am at MDC, I hope to be able to assist my students into becoming confident and expressive dancers who find their peace as they dance. I am looking forward to a great dance year ahead of us.
