“What’s your favorite thing to do?” I can answer this
question with “Teaching at Tustin Dance Center!” For 25 years I immersed
myself as owner, director and instructor of TDC. It was my heart’s delight
to work with dancers of all ages, especially growing the little ones from the
beginning of their (hopefully) long attachment to the world of dance.
I began dancing as a child and continued through high
school. I found dance to be a place where I could be creative, energetic,
and around others who loved to dance as much as I did. When I went away to a
Christian college, I took a slight detour and planned my career as an
elementary teacher. Although I did that for 15 years, it wasn’t until I
re-entered the dance world by teaching that I felt fulfilled. It was a
blessing that I was able to use the talent that God gave me to teach and to
be creative in dance while working with His children.
Now that I have passed the dance baton on to Ms Kelly
(my extremely talented, beloved friend for over 20 years!), I am thankful to
be on staff as a teacher at Tustin Dance Center, doing what I LOVE to do! My
prayer is that every dancer who steps through our doors will experience many,
many years of fancy-foot happiness!
