Biography

What does grace and grit mean to you?
Grace and Grit means that you will do anything it takes to reach your goals. You will stand with humility and elegance while facing diversity and you will never give up even in the hardest of times.

What do you love most about DC?
The thing I love the most about DC is that there is always something to do or see. I love the eclectic energy and diversity that DC offers to everyone.

What small thing makes you smile?
My students make me laugh and smile more then anything else. I teach kids as young as 3 and we always have a fun time while dancing.

What’s your favorite non profit organization?
My favorite non profit organization is Capitol Movement, Inc. Having the honor of teaching some of their after school outreach programs, I get to witness and be apart of their mission statement of “building better lives through dance”. CMI gives kids who can’t afford it, or normally would not be able to, have the opportunity to dance and watch dance throughout the DC area.

Best way to start your day...
I start every morning by doing a stretch inspired by ABT and a big cup of coffee.
