Different Drummer Dance is on a mission to bring bright, fresh & big-hearted dance education to kids & communities in the SF Bay Area & Upstate New York.


These aren't your mom's dance classes. Every little girl (and boy!) needs a place to feel confident, unique, and powerful. I offer fresh dance classes with lessons that last a lifetime and let your child take center stage. Now enrolling for classes in Speculator, NY!

Bright and big-hearted dance parties that engage and entertain.  Stress-free for you and crazyfun for your guests, you'll come away from your event wishing these parties had been around when you were a kid! Now offering parties in Upstate NY & Northern CA.

I blend tradition with funky and fun. I’m just as likely to play Beethoven as I am Don’t Stop Believin, and while I love cookies, I don’t believe dance is a place for cookie cutters or one-size-fits-all technique. I also offer professional services designed just for dance teachers & dance studio owners.
