Aka 'Dragon Queen'

Dance Style
I have traveled to New York and around Asia training in all street styles such as Hip Hop, Dancehall, Vogue, House, Waacking.

Dance Background
Her love for Hip Hop dance began in the new millennium taking classes in Sydney and forming a dance trio called ‘Triple Rebels’. Her love for Hip Hop grew even stronger when she lived in Japan in 2004, where she trained and extensively researched everything about the Japanese hip hop culture and history. Whilst in Japan, she also developed a passion for Dancehall and when she returned to Sydney in 2005, she formed a female dance crew, ‘Sakura’, performing everywhere around Sydney.

In the next 2 years, her devotion to dance led her to Broadway Dance Center in NYC where she was able to study all styles of street dance including Hip Hop, Popping, Locking, Breaking, House, Waacking, Vogue and Street Jazz with some of the pioneers of these styles such as Brian Green, Bam Bam, Ejoe Wilson, Jazzy J, Archie Burnette, Shabba-doo and Tyrone. She was also trained in Jazz and Ballet and discovered a new passion for Tap Dancing as well as West African dance.

She now resides in Sydney and is heavily active in the dance community managing Dancekool where her love for dance first began.

Philosophy in Dance
Simple: ‘Dance with your heart and not your brain!’ I believe that one can never stop learning. I feel that everyone can dance - I will bring out the dancer in you!

What do you want your students to get out of your class?
First and foremost and most important - HAVE FUN! I would like to share my international dance knowledge and experience as a dancer and a student. In class, my goal is to articulate to my students how to understand their bodies, music and the combination of both in dance.
