My Students

In my dance classroom, students do more than learn to dance. I try to open my students' ears, eyes, and minds to a diverse world through dance. As an alum of my school's performing arts program, I am a direct example of how an arts education can influence a career. Over the years, as a professional dancer, I have been exposed to many experiences and became a better teacher because of them. As a result of these life experiences, I wish to share lessons about culture and history while honoring the movement and creations of my students.

At our International Baccalaureate school, students need to be exposed to world dance studies and real world experiences for a well-rounded curriculum.

My students are hungry for knowledge, but my art department does not have the resources to provide master teachers to teach a variety of styles nor provide dance specific professional development. I have one hundred and sixty dancers to inspire and motivate.

My Project

My school’s dance department has so much to offer, from it’s arts department to their academics. Even though we are strong in the arts, sometimes dance isn’t on top of the list and isn’t often thought about. A near goal of the North Atlanta’s Dance department is to expand our education and impact on the dance world. Through the APS CLL Grow.Lead.Transform Mini-Grant, we envision a collaboration with our dance partner Dance Canvas to deliver four guest workshops to students in pathway classes The “Reach One Teach One Workshop” will feature the following classes: “Behind the Camera,”“Culture Dance Experience,” “Composition and Improvisation.”“Body Mind Centering” and “Dance Production”

These classes will assist students interested in the dance world by allowing them to gain knowledge and grow in all spectrums related to the art.

In these workshops, students will not only train their body, but their mind as well, they will be able to lead the Dance Department to the next level. In alignment with the Atlanta Public Schools vision, ‘A high-performance school district where students love to learn, educators inspire, families engage, and the community trusts the system’, I wish to transform my dance students into young adults that are able to think at a higher level, have an impact on their community and become patrons of dance. By participating in these workshops, students will also experience post-secondary options and engage in critical thinking.
