What do you enjoy about choreographing and/or teaching dance?
I love the students. It truly fills me with joy when a student has a breakthrough or realizes that they are capable of more than they thought.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to pursue this type of career?
People have done a lot with a little and a little with a lot, so always do what you want and have fun!
