1. When did you start dancing?
Well technically I took my first dance class at the age of 5 which was a creative movement class and I moved into sports after my class session ended. I didn't really start dancing until I was 11 when I moved to Texas. I joined a competitive community outreach dance program hosted at Westwood High School called the All-Stars Unlimited. It was a great program, lots of fun, and I didn't really learn any terminology during that time, but that's where the love of dance began.

2. What is your favorite thing to do in Austin?

I love paddle-boarding, yoga, exploring new venues with outdoor patios, hiking with my dog, and spending time with my family that lives in Round Rock.

3. Hometown?
Round Rock is my hometown.

4. Who is your inspiration?
I have multiple sources of inspiration, but my largest source is my faith, then it would be my family. I am ever so grateful for my professors from Texas Tech University who truly inspired a lot of self-reliance, humanity e...

Try new restaurants. I'm a foodie!

3. Hometown?

Denton, TX

4. Who is your inspiration?

Goodness, so many people - Right now, Chi Chi and Jackie Roese have inspired me. These women can see the gifts in others (especially other women) and lift them up. I'm not sure why women tear each other up, we have such low self esteems of ourselves to start. I'm inspired by any woman that has enough confidence to be able to see the positive in others and help them achieve their goals. It isn't common, but it should be. 

5. What are some of your non-dancing hobbies?

Golf, Rowing, and triathlons.

6. What is your favorite dance-related experience?

I used to be a part of a song/performance group at Church and we would do partner dancing. I think I enjoyed it becau...

Weekly Affirmation: Finding Stillness

“Stillness comes from within you; it doesn’t come from outside you.”

-Eckhart Tolle

The world has become a race to transport information, increase productivity, and travel from place to place. There’s always an errand or project going on. I find that practicing stillness is sometimes the hardest to accomplish, especially with so much caffeine helping me operate!

A lot of people live in this reality of constant multitasking. Balance in life is key. With this weekly affirmation, it reminds me to be still and centered while all of the chaos is happening around me. Stillness can be physical practices such as yoga, meditation, stretching, a peaceful walk, and even watching a sunrise or sunset. The main one I forget to do is mindful breathing through the day.

More than anything else, I envy the people who have days who chill out with a good book, a bubble bath, and a glass of wine. Finding these moments slow down life, allows people to live out their lives.

The New Year at Dance Austin Studio is bringing in lots of new adult dance classes with new instructors, styles, and levels! 

This year, we're excited to bring more Guest Master Class instructors! We're kicking off the best year yet with our first guest, Yanis Marshall on January 5th, 2017 teaching both Street Jazz and Heels!

Our master classes are growing, and we're excited to grow artistically and athletically! 

I've wanted to burst out and tell the world all about the new classes in 2017. Now that they're finally posted on our DAS website, I can tell everybody about it! Blabbing on our new DAS blog was my second thought to start sharing. The first was telling people on Facebook because well... it's the Social Media Age and all the rage. After creating a survey for our students to tell us what they wanted to see in 2017, we put together an incredible schedule with your response levels. Lyrical Hip Hop won the most popular vote!
