Where do you usually take class? Who is your favorite teacher in the DC area?

I take class all over DC, MD and VA. I enjoy all teachers I choose to take class from.

How has dance changed your life? How do you feel when you’re dancing?

Dance has motivated me to achieve all the goals I set out for myself, but most importantly I feel complete and free when I dance. It’s a powerful method of expression.

Any advice for people who are interested in dance, but have never danced before?

Never give up! Do not look at any other dancer and compare yourself to him or her. We all had to start somewhere. Your gift is unique. OWN IT!

Anything you want to promote? Anyone you want to give a shout out to?

    Mr. Price was suppose to be a teacher at a center for the recreation centers in Maryland. He only showed to teach the initial class. He has not been to the class since, missing an additional two classes with out notice. As a parent I find his behavior unprofessional and disrespectful. It appears he is only interested in promoting the interest of his dance company. My advice to him is: DO NOT TAKE ADDITIONAL WORK IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO COMMIT. your reputation is all you have and once you lose it you are no longer respected. As a result I will never look into placing my daughter in a program he teaches.
