Co-Marketing Director + Advanced Choreography Teacher (winter semester)
I am super excited to be teaching advanced choreography this year! My class will be changing week-to-week throughout the winter semester, dancing in multiple styles including contemporary, jazz, and all things in-between! We will be exploring all-kinds of movement and committing ourselves to travel outside our comfort zones and push ourselves to try new things. Then, we will create a collaborative piece for the final recital. This is an advanced class combining multiple styles so students should have approximately 7 years of dance experience with a foundation in ballet and jazz. Best suited to students who have some competitive dance experience or significant training.

What does dance mean to you? Dance has always been a huge part of my life. Dance is an outlet that allows me to express my emotions while simultaneously staying healthy. Music is one of my inspirations, so when I hear a song that I connect with, I can't help but get up and dance. I am so thankful that I have QDC in my life because it allows me to do what I love everyday!
What is your favourite YouTube channel? This question is a challenge because I love YouTube, but I would probably have to say Cody Ko, Noel Miller & Danny Gonzalez! I also love true crime videos.
If you were a special award, what would it be and why? If I were a special award it would probably be “Musical Mover” as I believe music is the root of all dance movement and it is very important to be connected to it when dancing. Another potential award could be “Passionate Performer” as I am never afraid to use my big personality on stage or in the studio!
Picture this: you fall on stage and the photographer managed to get a shot of you mid fall. What would you caption the picture? “At this point, are we even surprised? (She’s broken her foot 3 times already, my gosh.)”
