Wedding choreography for the engaged couple, for example, alone or with the bridal party, makes all the difference in putting the final touches on your wedding day. It is the true sweet icing on your wedding cake! And the joy of dancing will last you the rest of your life.
I Love Dance.
Some say I eat, drink and sleep dance every chance I get, and I do not deny it. After all, the older I grow, the greater the thrill and the higher my spirit soars from those graceful, sensual and expressive movements which we call dance. And these feelings are only intensified when I pass on my dancing skills and knowledge to those who yearn to experience and learn this most exhilarating of art forms. For the past 35 years I have studied and taught dance in Europe, Australia, South America, Egypt and here in North America. I have given over 60,000 dance lessons to thousands of people, of just about every age, race, cultural, ethnic and social background, made countless numbers of friends, and have enjoyed every moment of it.
Teaching Here and There
Since 1980 I have been on the faculty in the department of Exercise Science and Sport at the University of Scranton. I also conduct numerous dance programs at Marywood University, Keystone College, and College Misericordia. And once, I was an invited guest teacher at the White House Athletic Club in Washington D.C. In addition (and I have no idea where I get the time do all this) I am a Rostered Artist with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts providing dance education for high school students throughout Pennsylvania.
Dancing is my life-long work and passion, and as long as I can breathe the air and move my limbs, I will continue to teach and be an enthusiastic promoter of dance.
