What excites me as a teacher

The smile students get when they’re learning and starting to master a new sequence. The focus of a shared challenge.  As a dancer I love the emotion and power of music flowing through my body, and those around me. The feeling of dancing in a group is spiritual – we become a flock of birds, a school of fish. It’s a precious, sensory experience as old as time. One we need now more than ever.

I love how we cheer each other on, as we do our best – whatever that is.
