I grew up in Melbourne, Australia, learning ballet, ballroom, funk, jazz, contemporary, tap and hip hop.
I began teaching dance and personal training as soon as I finished school in 2001. Since then, I have taught many styles including funk, jazz, hip hop, KPop, Body Jam, Zumba, and GROOVE to adults and kids of all ages.
In 2015, I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. This has been a life long dream for me
Over the years, I have learnt that kids (and adults) LOVE TO DANCE! But that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are going to be professional dancers, or that they feel confident dancing when other people are in the room.
As well as the kids who dance anywhere/anytime, my classes are aimed at the kidz who dance like rock stars in their bedrooms and lounge rooms, but may not feel confident in public.
The classes I run encourage kids to express themselves creatively and tap into their own style while still ‘learning moves’.
I do like to do casual performances for parents and friends at the end of each term to give the kids an opportunity to “show their stuff.” We also take advantage of performing at various community events, like school fairs and street festivals.
