"I have 15 years of teaching experience and in all of my career and amazing opportunities, the children and my fellow Teachers at Your Talent Team have taught me the most by far. They are all the greatest inspirations I have ever had, I feel privileged to work with them and I enjoy everyday".
"Dance Yoga and Teaching are my passion and my joy. My mission and belief as a teacher is to always continue to learn, grow, share and create. It is important for children to have the space to develop knowledge, discipline and structure to create a solid foundation for them to learn and develop physical, mental and emotional skills for dance and for life. We will always support and nurture a child’s confidence, learning and creativity".
