I am happily married and have 4 wonderful kids. My husband, David, is very supportive and helpful with all my dancing and other aspirations. We sometimes can get him to join us in performances! Nothing makes me more happy than being a mother and a wife. I have owned my home based dance studio for more than a decade. I opened it so I could always be there first for my family. I love that my children see my passion for dance and get to share that with me! I believe performing, creating, learning new things, and being part of something builds confidence. I place high priority on keeping music, movement, and costumes wholesome and always will. Now that all my kids are in school, I’m excited to be teaching at Heritage as well so I can share my passion and love for dance here. My students always ask me how long I have been dancing. My mom was my first dance teacher and taught while pregnant with me. So, I always tell them, ‘I started dancing while in my mommy’s tummy!’ HA! I’ve seriously danced and performed my entire life. I’ve been teaching ever since I can remember but professionally teaching since I was 17. I got my degree at BYUI in Dance and BYU in Recreation Therapy and Psychology. Although I was trained in all areas of dance to some degree, my favorite genres are ballroom, Latin, swing, hip hop, dance lifts, country, creative, and lyrical. I was a dancer and cheerleader throughout my childhood, a Nauvoo pageant stunt dancer, president of STYLE; a social dance teaching/touring team at BYUI, BYUI Ballroom team, TA for ballroom dept at BYUI, BYU Dancesport soloist, UVU ballroom tour team and soloist, Fire and Ice country western dance tour team, BYU and UVU swing club, assistant director of the Red Mountain Institute Ballroom team, the director of the Arthur Murray Ballroom team, a teacher for Arthur Murray, choreographer for church events, teacher at Olympic Gym, sublease teacher at Dance Barn, dancer and teacher for Great Events, dance teacher and sub for Heritage Academy, choreographer for Music Forte, owner and director of my own Resonate Dance studio and ballroom performing team, guest choreographer for other events, and more. I love working with children and teens and helping them feel great about who they are. I absolutely love to dance and love teaching!
