About Me

I've been dancing since I was 4 years old. I am trained in classical ballet, hip hop, and swing... so I appreciate how ZUMBA incorporates so many different styles of dance. Its my favorite way to work out!  Since I have a heavy dance background, I like to use a lot of movement and technique in my Zumba classes.  I like that the dance moves trick you into working out in a major way!  Before you know it, you're smiling and laughing but doing squats or lunges and toning your body to perfection.

Ballet Training:  1984-1996 and 2004-2008

I trained exclusively in classical ballet at Bakersfield Ballet Theatre, under the direction of Martha Knight. This was a ballet studio in Bakersfield, Ca where no other forms of dance were taught. Performances were given at Civic Convention center (which is now known as the Rabobank Convention Center), The Fox Theatre, and The DorĂ© Theatre (at Cal State Bakersfield).

Swing Dancing:  2000-present

I am experienced in the following Forms of swing dance:    Lindy Hop (Hollywood style), East Coast Swing, Jitterbug, Balboa, and Shag.  I have participated in competitions at several Swing events in Los Angeles, CA. I also got to teach swing dancing with the Kern Lindy Society group in Bakersfield, CA.
