Dancing is where I am happiest… I owe dance actually.
Studying dance and performing on stage is truly what helped me gain the confidence to push myself past my shy and introverted teen years. Those that meet me today would never dream that I struggled with self-esteem and confidence as a pre-teen. I was lucky! I found my hobby, my favorite activity and my passion in life. I loved to dance. Not something that every teenager can say with enthusiasm. I know that I am lucky. I had great training, I worked hard and have been blessed with some amazing and inspirational dance teachers along my journey. That gave me the confidence to go after my dreams! Now it is my turn to give back…
It has been my mission to help instill that same passion and inspiration in my students that I received in my dance training. Teaching beyond the sport of dance to include the art as well as those important life lessons. Dance can build confidence that can last a lifetime and teach our youth to reach for their dreams whatever that may be!
This site is my contribution to help the dance world that I love!
I have taught Jazz, Contemporary, Modern, Tap, Ballet and Hip Hop dance for over 20 years. I have found time and time again that the key to your child’s dance success is education of all things dance. Especially educating the parents of dancers! The dance world can be intimidating. It can feel like a cult or an exclusive family that only lets a select few into their secrets! Parents, if you know more about dance, it’s trends and it’s different worlds, then you can help your dancer jump to the top of their game! It is important to learn about the rich history of Dance. I empower you to learn more about the body, your muscles and how to keep your dancer injury-free. I wish I could help more dancers learn about nutrition and taking better care of their bodies. I can’t tell you how many times I have explained to parents how to care for a twisted ankle or an pulled muscle! If you can gain the facts and the insight to help yourself or your dancer be their best, wouldn’t you jump at the chance? I am here to be your resource! Lets share information and help our dancers reach their goals and live their dreams.
Lets further the art of dance together… ASK MS. SONYA, I want to help!
