My Students

My dance students are a joy to coach and teach. Many are brand new to the art of dance, and I love to witness their growth and progress over the time that I get to work with them.

It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to dance and perform competitively.

They handle it with grace and dignity. Each week I am proud to lead them. I hope that one day they will see just how much they have learned and also how much they have taught me along the way.

My Project

Our dance team is the first in school history, and we are constantly on the move for practices and performances. We would love to use a speaker we can rely on and take with us as we reach for the stars and to build a new tradition within our school and community.

We practice every day and our season is 11 months long.

We start with football, basketball, and then go straight into competition season. It's not easy not having a consistent place to practice, but they make it work, and do so with a smile. I am proud to coach a dedicated group of students who love their school, community, and strive to be better every day.
