"As I have taught and inspired many young dancers, I have been taught and inspired myself by what they have achieved. To work with children, in dance, is at times challenging but is always rewarding. For a child or teen to be able to stand up on a stage and perform, or speak in front of a room full of peers, or present what might seem to be a simple ‘show-and-tell’ – each is a personal accomplishment, a building block that serves them well as they grow. Dance classes provide a fun, safe place where young people can develop important attributes including self-confidence and self-control as well as an understanding and appreciation for the value of persistence, focus, and preparation."
