Dancer Info:

Dance Styles: Animation, Robotics, Popping.
Teaching Philosophy: The main key to learning is repetition. Mastering the basics of a movement are integral, and as a teacher, I focus on making sure the students get the right form of practice. I like when my dancers feel inspired, are passionate and feel challenged.
Inspiration: Seeing others work hard and apply the knowledge they've learned to grow inspires me to learn and grow.
Favorite Part About Teaching For Excel: My favorite part about teaching for Excel is being able to teach in an environment with the most supportive staff! And seeing all the youngins' is a blast!
Fun Fact: My belly button looks like a 'power' sign.
Current / Upcoming Projects: This is kind of silly because it's always changing and will always be outdated. Just finished a MAC industrial tour in Chicago & Pennsylvania yesterday, currently training 2 Olympic figure skaters, joined the cast of King and I for another half month, going to South Africa in 2 weeks to teach, SYTYCD towards the end of summer... you get the idea. ABC’s Disneyland 60, Disney Channel Movie “Descendants 2”, Off Broadway’s Encore! “Do I Hear a Waltz”, Mexico City DanceFest, “Radio City Spectacular” with Mia Michaels.
Dream Dance Job: To be on a sitcom.
College and / or Professional Training: Self taught.

Dance Convention Teachers

All faculty teachers are scheduled to attend all locations, and to teach in all three levels. While all our teachers plan to be at each and every location, occasionally other professional obligations arise and a faculty member or two cannot attend. Excel works with many unbelievable teachers and will replace anyone absent with an equally qualified teacher. Our confirmed faculty for each city will be posted (with the schedule) one week in advance.
