As a resident of East Hampton, I am so excited to partner with the Park and Recreation department to offer a variety of dance classes this fall. I have 38 years of dance experience, 13 of those as a studio owner in Middletown, CT. Though I teach dancers of all ages, my passion is for the preschool - first grade age group and hope to bring all the benefits and joy of dance to each of you.
