Ya feel me?
I been dancing for over 20 years. I competed in International ballroom and Latin dancing for over 5 years and was a USABDA National Finalist. I've studied belly dancing and hip hop and performed at various venues in the Bay Area. I have also performed with PB&G's High Maintenance Salsa/Jazz team and in various local community musical productions.
A slow warmup focusing on all body parts prepares you for lots of hip, chest, ab, arm, leg and foot action. And a stretch cooldown with yoga elements improves your flexibility and prevents injury. I feel the passion in the music I chooses, whether Latin, hip hop, ballroom, showtunes, Arabic... I match fun moves to the rhythms in the song so that my students can feel the music. Songs change from day to day, so no one gets bored.
