My approach to class is teaching what needs to be taught based on the people who are in the space. I work to create an environment where everyone can feel equally challenged and encouraged in their learning process. In the end, I hope we all experience the joy of dancing and being in our bodies.

Why do you dance?

I dance because I feel liberated and I teach because I love learning. My first experience with dance was as a dancer and acrobat in a West African Dance & Drum Ensemble in Dallas, TX. I was drawn to the dance because of the drum.

Who have you danced with?

I have worked with choreographers such as Hope Boykin, Ronald K. Brown, Earl Mosley, and Darrell Grand Moultrie, as well as performed works by Christopher Huggins and Alvin Ailey. I have also worked with Francesca Harper in The Francesca Harper Project, and as an assistant and associate to choreographer Matthew Rushing.
