Social, Competitive & Wedding Dance Lessons


Group Classes and Private Lessons

I started dancing in June of 2005 and became hooked after my first lesson. I started competing in July of 2005 at the Wichita Dance Roundup after only two weeks of lessons. I found dancing to be fun, and great exercise and I love all of the beautiful dresses I get to wear when I compete.


I started dancing as a Jr. Teen for both ProAm and couples in the Country Western circuit. When I turned 18 I continued competing in two Country dance circuits. I have worked my way up from the newcomer level to Intermediate. I took a short break while starting my family and I am again competing and now teaching. I will continue advancing my dance education by learning Ballroom and Latin.


From the time I started dancing I have assisted Terry and Colleen Cummings with group classes which furthered my interest in improving and becoming an instructor. I love helping people and seeing the excitement on their faces as they learn and develop the same passion for dance that I have.

I am excited to be working alongside a bunch of amazing instructors at Care to Dance and provide my willingness to work hard and give others knowledge and passion for dance.


Dancing is the language of the soul.
