  • "It has been an incredible journey, one that began in 2009 when I enrolled in 92nd Street Y's DEL Foundations of Dance Education course. It was there that I first became interested in becoming a dance educator. I can recall creating my "teacher’s heart" and feeling a strong connection to my own dance teachers as well as to all the future students that I hoped to instruct one day."
