Objective: VIDEOS, JUDGE, INSTRUCTOR, DANCER/ PERFORMANCE

My services: Stage Performances, Workshops, Judge, Videos, Events.

I am a skilled dancer with extensive experience in the use of movement, gesture, and body language to portray a character, situation and abstract concepts to an audience. My background training includes musical training, physicality, and several workshops and classes I have taken. Very open-minded to all music genres, experiments with all music genres to understand how the body can interpret a variety of different sounds and rhythms. Trained in the styles of ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop, funk, popping, breakdancing. Dancing for 13yrs, but breakdancing is my prime, where I’ve been doing it for 8years now.
