"Teaching to me is the most rewarding job one could ask for. 2020 will mark my 19th year in the industry. I have been blessed enough to travel the world in my profession teaching in Brisbane, London and California to students of all ages, levels and social backgrounds. It is a simple and yet beautiful thing to see that no matter where you are or how diverse a room may be, when bodies start dancing, we unite. 

 

No two students are the same and I value that individualism very much. Every class should be fun, productive, and positive. Above perfect dancers, I value passionate dancers, who try their best and enjoy their art. My goal and promise to you is to help your student be the best dancer they can personally be, help put their new skills into every area of life, and feel proud of what they have achieved in the Radiance Team.”
