What we'll do

Please keep this in mind when booking: Classes booked within less than 24 hours may have to be rescheduled due to space constraints upon rare occasion. Mondays - Times: 6 to 7 am, 12 to 1pm 1st Monday of every Month The 'Roaring 20's' Come and learn The Charleston and early Jazz moves like The Jitterbug and The Cakewalk! The twenties was a time for dance when African rhythms joined the mainstream and the Flapper style was all the rage. Join me and experience a truly special time in American history-and bring your ‘Happy Feet’ ! 2nd Monday of every Month 70’s Disco Come and learn some iconic and classic dance moves from one of the greatest films ever-in my opinion-Saturday Night Fever! We will take a close look at The Hustle and more specifically The Tango Hustle. Feel free to bring your platforms ; ). 3rd Monday of every Month The 90’s ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ Do you love watching music videos just to see your favorite artist dance? Growing up I loved to watch Aaliyah videos and one of the most popular choreographers to work with her (and Michael Jackson, Meghan Trainor, to name a couple) is known as FATIMA. Join me as we learn some HIP-HOP moves from their music videos and relive the 90’s! 4th Monday of every Month 50’s Sock Hop! Come experience mid-century America through dance and music! I love the idea of being a ‘vintage dancer’ for a ’s learn how to Hand Jive, Stroll, and Twist! Feel free to bring your bobby socks : ) !

In 2006, I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts and Education from The University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley. Currently, I am a teacher, choreographer, and performer for The Ballet Folklorico Yolotzin and The Academy of Mexican Dance and Music. A few of the dance forms that I practice are Ballet, Mexican folk dance, Flamenco, and Modern. I have recently achieved a life, long-term goal when I toured Mexico this past Fall as a professional performance artist. This experience has helped me to grow as an artist and I am excited to share what I have learned throughout my career-with you!
