    About me:


    • I started developing an interest for classical dancing at age 8. Since then, dancing has always been a passion, and a hobby for me. I started to develop a strong interest in Ballroom & Latin Dancing in 2000. One thing lead to the other and next thing I remember is studying for my CDTA professional exams to become a qualified dance instructor. I decided to open up my own studio in 2008 and to share my passion and love of dancing with others. My favourite dance styles include Samba, Rumba, Argentine Tango & Viennese Waltz.
