Welcome to MCAA's Dance Department. This year we have a lot of great opportunities for you to perform and share your talents with your peers and the community.

Just a little information about me and my life experiences with dance. I started taking lessons at the age of 3 (many years ago). Ever since then I have trained in ballet, jazz, modern, pointe, tap, contemporary, and yoga. I graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara with my bachelors of Fine Arts in 2006. I have been teaching dance for the past 15 years, 8 of which have been here at MCAA. Dance has always been a great passion of mine and I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with very talented students.

Here are a few very important dates to remember for the 2015- 2016 school year...

Dessert & Dance Recital-
December 3 & 4 @ 6:30pm

May 13 @ 6:30pm

All of the performances are required as part of the class curriculum. Rehearsal schedules and show times will be sent home a.s.a.p.

If at any time through out the year you have any questions, please e-mail me at
