- I have 2 sons who like to dance, but chose the Medical Profession as their careers.
- I have 2 cats (sisters) who have joined my Zoom "Toning with Weights (and Cats)" class. They are named after 2 sisters who have taken my class since kindergarten.
- I also love to drum and have performed with Maracatu NY throughout NYC.
I started dancing when I was 3 yrs. old and danced throughout my youth. One of my teachers was a Rockette and taught us tap and Broadway style dance. I also studied Ballet with a wonderful teacher. I went on to college and graduated from SUNY Brockport with a Bachelor of Science in Dance. After college I danced with various Dance Companies and toured the world. We did many residencies teaching Arts in Education Kindergarten-College aged students. I also was able to perform throughout the US, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Korea, Japan, throughout the Carribean and many other interesting places. I love to meet people of different cultures and enjoy their artforms. One of the companies I danced with was called All Nations Dance Company which represented dance from around the world. The name of the show was called "Joy in Every Land" and it was exciting to share the dance, music and costumes with all of the audiences. I enjoy performing, but I also enjoy sharing my love of dance through teaching. I teach Tap, Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Creative Movement, On Broadway and Fitness Classes to people of all ages.
