I have over 30 years experience teaching and coaching dancers of all ages. With all that experience has come numerous choreography awards at the local, regional, and national levels. But, all that recognition is not the end as you must continue to learn from the best in the business. I have been blessed to have had a chance to learn from and cultivate friendships with Mike Peele, Kassidy Bright, Liam Keflezgy, Talia Favia, Chaz Buzan, Gigi Torrest to name just a few.
I believe in helping dancers push themselves to new heights and to always strive to do better than the last time you danced. I truly believe that when a person falls in love with dance, they become a “Dancer.” Since dance is an art and no two artist grow and learn the same, I do whatever it takes to help them achieve their goals and find their inner passion.
I started at MDC way back when with a goal of nurturing a “family vibe” in the studio. It was never going to be a dance factory where young dancers were just a number. There are always going to be moments of listening, crying, laughing, and supporting as there are in all families. My daughters both grew up and danced in the studio. And now, Elizabeth is teaching and coaching as well. My forever “boyfriend”, Mike, has done so many things over the 30 years from running music and lights for the shows, listening to countless hours of music, and watching endless dance movies and shows to the point he could be a judge himself! MDC is truly a family.
I will always be there for you and your dancer. I will also push your dancer harder to become their best. And everyone that knows me will agree that I am the loudest and biggest supporter of dance and what your dancer can achieve.
