Question 4: When & Why did you start teaching at Five6seven8?

Answer: Scouted by Alissa and Craig in 2014, to come work at Five6seven8, I started in January 2015, naturally winning them over with my wit and charm and my ‘average’ dance skills, through continuous love and care, like a weird plant, they nurtured me into the teacher I am today making me better, wittier and funnier.

Question 5: Why do you love to teach dance?

Answer: Teaching is instant gratification for what you know and love. Seeing a student, grow and accomplish things through dance is beyond the best feeling. Watching my students progress through dance and get that one step right when they look at you like you’re crazy when you show them the first time is the greatest feeling of accomplishment. 

Question 5: Why do you love to dance?

Answer: The feeling of being on the floor, showing a step, dancing in a show, or simply teaching a group class, I always get the exact same feeling every time. A feeling of being free and happy, complete happiness in those exact moments. 

Question 6: Tell us something about yourself

Answer: Fun, loud, and a complete extrovert, obsessed with Harry Potter. I am essentially studio furniture but please don’t sit on me. That’s illegal now.
