How long have you been a dancer?
This will be my 29th season of dancing. I also spent 13 seasons as a competition dancer with a group and with solos. I've been teaching and assisting for 20-plus years as well.
What is your favorite dance style?
My favorite style of dance is lyrical/contemporary. I've always been drawn to this style’s flowy movements and versatility.
What is your role at Legacy Dance Center? (i.e., Teacher -Style, age group)
I will be teaching jazz, lyrical, and tap for ages 6 and up. This year I am also assisting with the competition teams.
What dance/choreography is your favorite as a student at RDC with Wendi?
Choosing just one dance as my favorite from my 27 seasons at RDC with Wendi is nearly impossible. Halloween, Wind It Up, and Jai Ho were some of my favorite competition pieces I performed. Bang Bang and Austin Powers are two more pieces that are my favorite opening numbers.
What is one lesson Wendi taught you that has stuck with you?
Wendi taught me to never give up. No matter what life throws at you, keep going and persevere. She was one of the strongest people I have ever known, and I strive to have that kind of strength.
