There isn't a section for this so I am adding this as additional information. This is my resume, I am constantly trying to keep myself busy and I absolutely love dancing, performing and teaching. I don't claim to be the best, but the production that I have put together is the best of me. I don't always get paid well in this business, if I could I would dance, perform, train, and teach for free, this is my passion. I hope to build a working relationship with you soon or perform at your celebration soon. I am also willing to barter. Thank you
To bring passion and dedication to each of my students, to inspire them to express themselves through the art of dance.
