I think that whatever gift we are blessed with, we should do to it's full capacity. We should strive for our own individual loves and freedoms. We should also do so with complete confidence and happiness- regardless of what other people think. At HTM Dance, I/we teach dance, but it is so much more than that. It is about life, love for yourself, and believing in yourself. So many people have a low self image, and it is my goal to make a connection and show how dance can help change that belief.
Dance is for those who are outspoken, and also for many who don't have a voice. I want to show people how to communicate through movement. This can be through ballroom, hip hop, contemporary, or any type of movement you can do with our without music. Much of the focus of communication is done through a lead and follow partnership. What is you want to say? How do you want to be heard? This is such a powerful tool that can be applied to the lives of many, and has also been applied to my own.
Dance is about freedom and self expression. It is just about any emotion you can imagine, but the LEARNING process has to be FUN. You have to love what you do, and have intention on learning- and you retain the most when you love it or even like it- but most importantly you retain the most when you are having fun!! I find joy in making people smile and discover the fun, love, and passion for dancing.
