It was my grandmother who put me in my first ballet class at the age of 5, at Susan Vaughn School of Dance. It was during my time in this studio I discovered what I was born to do, Dance. Growing up in Mrs. Vaughn’s studio, she gave me the opportunity to be an Apprentice Dance Instructor and Instructor for 20 years. I have choreographed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level dance classes. I have offered individual choreography for competition and auditions.
