Dance Education and Experience:
The following is my dance resume. In addition, I have supplemented my education by consistently attending
programs of Dance by: Alvin Ailey,The Dance Theater of Harlem, The Joffery Ballet, The American Ballet Theater,
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and the Ballets of San Francisco and Oakland. I have had an incredible dance
education from instructors that studied at Julliard in New York City, and from a repertoire of instructors
who brought an array of dance movements from Cuba, Jamaica, and Trinidad.
