"I've always been crazy and clumsy and one day I looked dancing
in the mirror and asked myself; Who am I? First thing when I had
to mind ... GOOFY! While dancing, I learned to accept myself for
who I was. I'm just goofy, that crazy locker who turnes mistakes
into new dance moves.
During my classes I want to motivate people to be themselves.
Dancing is a connection with yourself, you will become confident
of. That self-confidence is the most important thing I can give
my students so that they can achieve their own goals. "
