" I love to teach because everyone was born to be an artist and must share that Divine gift with many people. Especially dance. When my father passed away when I was a young girl, dance was the only thing that made me feel alive.
When I teach the orphans, I go in deeply so I don't only teach dance... I make them see and feel the light of life. I show how it can be found within their hearts. DANCE IS PURE JOY! Where we can spread our wings and set ourselves free."
