Ever since the age of 2, I have found joy in the ability to dance. It has always given me a way to express myself when words can't. It has given me an outlet for release and a creative canvas in the form of my body and movement. The ability to share that love with all of you brings me great joy. This project has become so much more than just a hobby, but ultimately a way for me to stay in touch with a part of my soul.
I have been shuffling since September 2015. This process seems to be never ending, as I meet so many amazing people and continue to learn and grow. I try to continuously look for new avenues to pursue and develop as any dancer should. I am always working on some kind of project, whether it be a collaboration or my own personal creative vision. I am not only versed in shuffling but have over 14 years of professional and competitive dance experience. This ranges from ballet, contemporary, jazz, modern, hip hop and more.
Learning in our lives is the most important thing we can do in my opinion. On top of dance I have an Honours bachelor degree from University of Toronto and a certification from Ryerson University. No matter what I am pursuing in life, dancing has always been there as a motivational athletic, a disciplined art, and most importantly an expressive outlet. It has taught me so many values and given me more than I could have ever imagined.
It gives me great pride to be able to give back what I have gained. People reach out to me all the time to share that I inspired them to start their own journey through shuffling. I'm so happy that many others share the love that I have for dancing, and that so many people are staying active and creative. I now teach shuffling once a month, and love working with like minded individuals on a multitude of projects. I am always open to new collaborations so feel free to reach out and I will be sure to get back to you.
