Owner and Director of Dove Academy of Dance Arts. My philosophy for my studio is simple, everyone has the ability to dance and it is my job to give you the foundation and structure to do so. We strive to teach your children more than dance steps-they will learn grace,poise, and confidence
I grew up in Kansas City,Missouri where I danced under Dolly Arden and Monica Renwick. I traveled with Dance Olympus and I was a National Champion with Showstopper,Tremaine, and DanceAmerica.
Upon arriving in Texas I continued my training with Densil Adams and taught at Preston Center Dance for many years. I have done commericals and industrials as a dancer.
Choreography work that I have done outside the dance world includes Throughly Modern Millie for Plano Childrens Theatre, Suessical for Vines High School,and Crystal Charity Ball.
I have done choregraphy for Ice dancers,Freestyle skaters and Pairs teams and have traveled to USFSA nationals with these skaters.
As I start my 12th year, I look forward to getting the opportunity to teach your children
