I have been involved with dance for over 32 years.
As a child I learned Southern Indian dancing while in India,
and in the years that followed studied classical Ballet,
Jazz, African, and Cuban Dance in the US. I am committed
to providing high quality dance education and serving the
community. I am able to accomplish this by constantly trying
to improve my dance wisdom and technique.
I teach and attend weekly classes in various dance forms and perform regularly. I have been salsa dancing since 1993 and teaching Salsa since 1996. My students come from all walks of life and various age groups, from pre-teens to 80 year olds. I have worked extensively with many cultures: African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Latin-Americans, Caucasians and immigrants from different countries. I view dance as a wonderful way to promote health and move us towards wellness and wholeness. I have been a health care provider for 28 years and believe that dance is one of the best ways to stay healthy and happy. I also provide "Wellness Coaching and Classes," please check out more information on the Dance & Health page.
My Masters degree is in Healthy Aging from the University of California, SF, 1985. I have received 28 awards in innovation, service and education totaling $10,000. I have a lot of passion
and expertise for what I do! Please come and find out for
yourself !!! I teach private lessons and group classes at colleges, dance studios, health-fitness centers, high schools, parties, and nightclubs.
I also choreograph wedding dances to any kind of music.
