Finance director + Advanced Hip Hop Teacher
My class is fun and fast paced. My goal is for everyone to leave the studio sweaty, smiling and feeling like they have bonded with others in the room. I don’t take myself too seriously and often show that in the way I teach. I aim to create an environment where students feel comfortable and supported but also pushed to become better. Students should be coming into advanced hip-hop with a strong dance background and at least 8 years of dance experience.

What does dance mean to me: Dance has played a huge role in developing who I am. It has allowed me to be comfortable in own body, embrace my imperfections and find people that I can truly connect with. Dance has taught me to invest in creativity and to embrace the challenges life brings. I have learned how to be part of a team and celebrate the strengths of others. I would not be who I am today without dance and I am so grateful I was able to find it at a young age. Countless times it has saved me and continues to do so. So I guess dance means everything to me.
Favourite YouTube Channels: Cody Ko, Kurtis Connor, Violet Chachki and UNHhhh. I like dry comedy and drag queens.
Theme song for your life: Any song that I can dance in my kitchen with my friends to.
Most memorable dance experience: Bad acro poses for picture day.
I was a competitive dance for 10 years, competing in all styles. I began choreographing and teaching hip hop at the age of 14 and have continued to do so for the past seven years. I have taught dancers ages 3-18 at the recreational, pre-competitive and competitive level as well as adults. This will be my third year teaching hip hop for Queen’s Dance Club. My focus is on pushing dancers to become their best while creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all.
