My goal in teaching is not to have people “copy and paste” my every exact move. My goal is to help my students find their own movement, their own style, and their own groove in how they connect with themselves and the music. The only “right” way is not when it looks or feels best to me, but when it looks and feels best to them. I aim to teach and show basic movements of Animation dancing, while implementing other styles as well, showing how different cultures and styles of dance have and can collide.
