"Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn't music" -

Bay Area Fitness Pros

I love teaching kids!!  I have been teaching pre-ballet, tap and jazz for over 25 years and it just amazes me how fast these little ones learn.  I am so proud of them!

I am professionally trained in Jazz, Ballet and Tap and I was a professional dancer for 5 years right out of high school.  I had the privilege to train with famous dance instructors including ballet with Marguerite Phares Ballet Company and Jazz  and tap with Pepper Von and Ron Cisneros in Sacramento, California. I also trained with Hollywood Choreographer George Jayne in Los Angeles and the late Alice Faye in San Jose.  


After I retired from performing, I continue my passion for dance and choreography and mentored young dancers for competition in studios from Sacramento to San Diego and even Hawaii where I taught at Nix Dance and the Honolulu Gymnastics Center for several years.

Today, I teach pre-ballet and tap along with jazz dance for various studios and after school programs in the Bay Area.
