Question and answer

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. If I were a customer interested in dance lessons I would like to be familiar with rhythms and music appropriate for each dance style. The more familiar I am with a dance rhythm the easier it will be for me to learn the dance steps and movements.

If I were a customer interested in yoga I would like to have good awareness of my body, of anatomy and of yoga tools that would facilitate my practice with ease.

I were a customer interested in massage therapy I would like to be knowledgeable in anatomy, body systems, endocrinology and natural healing. This would better help me understand what is occuring in my body during and after my massage session and would give to the tools to best help my body stay relaxed.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love to help people live their best lives through dance, wellness practices such as yoga and meditation, staying fit through fitness and nutrition and providing stress relief and relaxation through massage therapy.

I have been passionate about dance and wellness my whole life. I am filled with joy to have the opportunity to share my passion with others. It is evident in everything I do and I believe that is what makes my work so rewarding.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Students who are new to dance often wonder what is the appropriate attire for their first lesson. Depending on the dance style, the right shoes are the most important in the students ease to learn. When the student is comfortable in their own shoes, then they will be more confident to dance without reservation. All dance styles have specific shoes for the style. If a student does not have the appropriate shoe for the dance I would suggest wearing a shoe that has a smooth, non grip surface so that the student can easily dance around. It is also important wear clothes that move easily with their body. This is also appropriate for yoga and pilates sessions. Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move in.
