I have owned other local dance studios and started up my own competition/performance team but MidMo Conservatory of Dance became my new home in 2010, and we moved to the Capital Mall in 2019 adding a dance retail store to the studio. I have worked with the Moscow Ballet in 2007 in their Nutcracker Performance as a teacher. I frequent many workshops including: Tremaine, St. Louis Tap Dance Festival, Dupree, I Love Dance, Spotlight Dance Competitions, Dance Makers, Dance Olympus, City Slicker Stomp, and American College Dance Festivals, and my students have performed in nursing homes, Kidsfest, Worlds of Fun, with the Wildheart Concert at Runge Nature Center, Salute to America, and local elementary schools.
