I have been an educator for the past 14 years, but this will be my second year at Idaho Arts Charter School as one of the dance instructors for the dance program. Dance has taken me to places I never would have dreamed. In addition to teaching for the United Spirit Association (USA) for 14 years in over 10 states, I have had the chance to choreograph in Paris, France for USA and for the ABC televised "Very Merry Christmas Parade" in 2000. I am currently an adjunct professor, teaching dance at both Albertson College of Idaho and Boise State University. I have choreographed a number of musicals including "Fiddler on the Roof", "Jesus Christ Superstar" and "Guys and Dolls" for groups including the Boise Music Festival and Knock 'Em Dead Productions. I have taught for many Idaho dance studios and owned my own dance studio for four years. I have performed with groups including Drop Dance Collective, Idaho Dance Theatre, Boise State Mane Line Dancers, Idaho Stampede Dancers and the NBA Seattle Super Sonic Dancers. I have my Master of Arts in Dance from California State University, Long Beach and am a second year grad student. When I am not dancing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three Labradors.
