When I was probably 7 years old an old woman said she could read my palm. Her prediction was that I'd be a teacher. I thought, "She doesn't know how to predict the future because I know I'm gonna be a dancer!" Well little did I know that I'd be both! I started teaching dance when I was 16. At that time I taught ballet to 5 & 6 year olds. During college I began teaching traditional West African dance. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree with the majority of my credits in Cultural Studies, Ethnochoreography & Ethnomusicology (World Music & Dance). I currently teach West African dance & Zumba classes on the Mendocino coast. Click on the "Classes" tab above to find a Zumba class that works for you.
