My creative childhood development began with the donning of mouse ears to perform in front of the television to Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. I forged my foundation and talents as a drama student in high school and as a ballerina in the Dallas Metropolitan Ballet. My love for dancing, singing and acting led to my first professional job as a dancer and aerialist with Disney on Parade, where I performed in front of audiences across the U.S, and in Mexico and Canada. I continued my passion for movement by choreographing and performing at dinner theatres and special events, and by teaching children’s creative dance, ballet and jazz for the YMCA. In 2010 I was blessed to discover Nia, which I continue to participate in weekly for body fitness. My love of Free Dance in Nia led to my discovery of the amazing world of JourneyDance, which I practice and facilitate weekly to enhance my spirit. Dance is the creative source of my life, and can be for you too! Join me for a JourneyDance flow and experience the magic you can create for yourself through music and movement!
