As co-owner and coach at Rising Tide, it’s no surprise that I love Irish dance and I love sharing it with others. But beyond my passion for the sport, my job as a teacher and adjudicator is to stretch each student to reach their full potential in a way that is challenging and fun. For me, the most exciting part about teaching is determining what’s possible for each of our students and then working to achieve those goals.
With over 20 years of training in both Irish dance and ballet, and a background in human resources, my teaching style is grounded in technique and supported by a strong understanding of goal setting, feedback, and motivation.
As the first Adjudicator (ADCRG) in Atlantic Canada, and past World Irish Dance Championship competitor, I understand the dedication required of Irish dancers. I offer our students a trained eye, clear feedback, passion, energy, enthusiasm (and a bit of silliness) as they work towards their goals.
