“Welcome to your dance journey. I would like to share with you what I learnt from my own experience as a dancer.  A new journey in a new passion such as dance can be challenging if we are not equipped with the right tools. Here are the main tools needed to reach your greatest potential as a dancer. 

Arrive to dance with a full cup of humility… Once you drink from this cup we will be able to fill your cup again with beautiful dance knowledge.  After you drink this cup, you will once again fill your cup with humility.  The art of being humble is a huge factor in being successful in the understanding of dance and become the best dancer/person you can be.

Arrive with an open mind.  An open mind will pave the way for you to experience more clarity and connect deeper with the music and dance. 

Arrive with an open heart.  Your access to trust will allow you greater potential to create stronger and more meaningful  bonds with fellow students and teachers.

Practice the art of surrender.  It's true.  We are able to learn the most, by letting go of all pre-conceived ideas.  Being non-judgmental with every person you meet will help you enjoy every single dance.

In the end, we are all searching for the same things on the dance floor:  Happiness, respect, fun, sense of connectedness, love, trust. The dance floor carries many hidden treasures.  But to find them…. we must first search within.

Shall we dance?”
