Turning Emotions into Motion 2120 Old Gatesburg Road, State College, Pa 16803
I have fourteen years teaching experience in hip-hop, and tumbling. I have twelve years of recital and production experience and eight years of All-Star Competitive Dance experience. I am a certified EMT-B, and have worked as an emergency room technician for eight years. I have taught master hip hop classes and done choreography for All-Star and Scholastic programs across the area for the last six years. I am a native of North and Uptown Philadelphia. I am not a studio trained dancer, but a battle/free style performer. In my youth I trained with different hip hop dance crews, to compete in battle situations. I also trained heavily in tumbling and martial arts. In my early instructor years, I learned so much from studio owner Joan Kennedy about teaching and interacting with the students/families. The one thing that always stays with me from Joan is, “you can't teach students you don't know". We at Hot Styles make the time to get to know all our students.
