As an instructor at a dance studio in Jensen Beach, Florida, I have taught students from ages 2 to adult and am proficient in teaching beginning through intermediate ballet, all levels of acrobatics, jazz, tap, and lyrical. This includes teaching and choreographing routines in both recreational and competitive arenas, as well as teaching several technique classes in most levels/disciplines. Although comfortable teaching any and all levels, my main focus has been in teaching students ages 2 through 13 throughout the majority of my time teaching.
