OWNER, HEAD FITNESS INSTRUCTOR, DANCE INSTRUCTOR
Training at Black Rose was one of the best things I'd ever done. Becoming the owner is one of my greatest honors. Coaching this crew is invaluable.
I found my feet in jazz when I was a kid thanks to my amazing parents, Gary and Mary. I’ve been lucky enough to travel all over the world and train with some of the very best in their field, including my hero D.J. Brown, as well as the originators and legends of their fields. I’ve made a career that centers on not just creativity, but the empowerment and celebration of everything that makes us human.
I specialize in jazz (especially Fosse, burlesque, broadway, contemporary and early 1900’s vernacular dance), hip hop and have trained extensively in partner dance.
I’ve been performing most of my life, teaching and doing my very best to help others tap into their most confident self whenever they take the stage. It doesn’t matter if it’s a show, a competition or just a night out, we are all able to feel powerful and joyful and make the world a little more magical.
The stage gave me everything; an artistic outlet, a job, my best friends and Kati, my amazing partner. What will it give you?
