“I believe there are times when words aren’t enough for artistic expression. As dancers, we have the ability to express emotions and creativity through movement that words can’t manifest. Each body is unique, and by learning how to use it artistically, one builds values of gratitude, compassion and confidence. Students learn the basics of breaking (breakdancing) through individual coaching and group activities. I encourage the discovery and development of exploring unique ideas and movements which foster individuality, identity and personal style. I focus both on form and creativity while allowing the students to share ideas and inspire each other. Students learn about various techniques that increase their productivity and efficiency in their learning process which can easily be applied to other subjects outside the classroom.”

Students are encouraged to add their unique flair and create their own combinations of moves.
