Pioneering Holistic Dance Education.

Trade always feeling behind for knowing that you’re right on time.

Running a artistic and creative business means you wear more hats than inside the costume closet of Mad Men.

Though you spend lots of time hidden behind the scenes, making it all run smoothly, I can see you; and I know this job is hard.

The key to letting the worry and anxiety go? It’s not a master technique or a super special Excel spreadsheet. It doesn’t even have to do with dance technique. Yep, you read that right.

Getting it all you want from your students, and for your business starts with teaching HEART, not technique. How do we teach in a big-hearted way?
