Dance Style
Everything from bgirl/party grooves "hip hop" old school - new school, choreography, femme, house to loving dancehall or even funkstyles to cook island hula ..I love Many forms of dance.

Dance Background
Since 96 I started. The old VHS copies of video clips .. 90s life! When you couldn't dance in a studio unless you had a jazz/tap or ballet education, in NZ. So I had the bedroom, talent competitions, teaching at local events and even international. Officially a Bgirl first, with Stepkingz/Timebandits NZ. And I was fortunate to have such an amazing hip hop family who kept me in check and taught me the life of hip hop culture.

Eternal promise, a ministry group Jireh, and Habit are crews I got to do choreography with. I studied performing arts for 3 years and have travelled around the world performing and learning cultural dance such as cook island Ura, Maori Kapa Haka, Samoan Siva and contemporary Pasifika. I was a part of The Company NZ team for 4 years and I had my own studio for 5 years in Wellington NZ. 20years experience and love for dance!

Philosophy in Dance
Keep on learning. There is nothing new under the sun, but there is always chance to get new revelation. And ALWAYS stay humble.

What do you want your students to get out of your class?
To catch something, to grow from something but most of all to enjoy that something. Whatever it is I have to give, to hopefully receive it, like a gift. Because that's what dance is, a gift to share.
