about Me

My Story

I help dance teachers learn the tools of sport psychology to help their dancers thrive.

As a former professional ballet dancer, I know better than anyone that teaching dance is more than yelling “point your toes,” every 2 seconds and telling them to “pull up!” and “smile!” 

For 10 years I have used my experience as a professional dancer and coach, along with my PhD in sport psychology to help dance teachers make a bigger impact in the lives of their dancers. You may only have them in your class for a few hours a week, but you have the power to teach dancers about resilience, growth mindset, passion, and perseverance.

What I Believe

Dance can teach us about self-discipline, teamwork, confidence, grit and resilience without destroying a dancer’s self-esteem.

We can learn the same incredible life lessons through dance without the negativity. We can teach our young dancers skills like confidence, resilience and self-control through the tools of sport psychology.
