At 63 it was time to reflect on 40 plus years of teaching and training students. I began my journey in my teens teaching ballet to pay for my own dance classes. Then was asked to create classes at a gym in California. The journey in movement is ever changing and evolving. My goal is keeping fit through every stage in life. To all who work with me : health in body, mind and spirit.
