I am a private studio owner, a dance teacher in a Kindergarten to 8th-grade charter school, and an associate member of CORPS de Ballet International. I love this organization and I am proud to be associated with its talented, dedicated, and welcoming members. Even though I do not teach at a university level, I have always come away from the conferences with ideas and concepts that are applicable to even my youngest students. I have been inspired by the opportunity to observe the teaching of ballet’s best professionals, enriched from scholarly presentations, and enabled to better prepare my high school students for their college dance experience. I highly recommend Corps de Ballet International to all ballet educators.
