SUCHHH a great teacher! I was a dancer even before I took her class but I've learned so much in my 4 years with her. She doesn't go too quickly or too slow with the class. Make sure you always go into class wanting to learn as much as you can! Audition for everything !

I. am SOOO not a dancer. And thankfully she doesn't play favourites. Y'all need a different attitude if you want to enjoy her class. All you gotta do is try, and she will love you. I'm seriously going to miss her class. Enjoy the time with her while you can.

I was no dancer and I didn't care if she played favorites, she produced awesome work. She works very hard and was evident. I love that she respected me enough to tell me the truth about my work.

If you pay attention and work, she will make you a better dancer. To me, that's all that matters. I don't care if she doesn't like me, she makes me like dancing. I'm looking to be pushed, not for a friend. Thanks Mrs. Murphy.

Dance is supposed to replace phys ed. And phys ed is supposed to supply us with physical movement and exercise.So then why doesn't Jr and Sr dance supply this?
