As of May 2017, I will be retiring and closing The Academy of Fine Arts dance studio.

What a ride it has been, and many great memories have been made over the last 30 years. I started teaching at age 15 and have been doing this crazy thing I love for 45 years. I'm ready to spend more time with family and have more time to travel.

I can never thank the many students, teachers, and parents for all their love and support over the years. Academy of Fine Arts recital is Saturday, May 13, 2017 and is dedicated to all of you. "Thanks for the Memories"
