I believe that anyone can learn to dance if given the right opportunity and an understanding teacher. My mission is to bring dance to those that otherwise would not get the chance to enjoy the benefits of dance. I believe dance should be accessible to all and aim to bridge the gap between any inequalities. I also believe that dance can bring communities together, unite the young and old and can be used as a means to heal the mind, body and spirit.
