3rd - 5th Grades


Students will perceive and respond using elements of dance.  They will demonstrate movement skills, process sensory information, and describe movement using the vocabulary of dance.  Students will explore dances from different regions around the world, learning geography , cultural expressions, and traditions of the region.  This class is designed to build self-confidence, geographical knowledge, creativity, and teamwork skills. There will be a class presentation at the end of the semester during Showcase to show the dances students learned throughout the course.

Instructor Biography

I have always had a love for learning every since I was a child.  I have studied dance since the age of two: Ballet, Jazz, Tap, World Dance styles, and Hip-Hop. I received my B.A. in Multicultural Education from Sonoma State University and began working as a Program Coordinator for at-risk youth.  It was an amazing experience and it solidified my desire to serve the youth.  

Over the past 20 years I have had the opportunity to teach k-12th grade and community college courses.  This has given opportunity to work with a variety of families and students. During my 20 year journey I was trained in Behavioral Management and have worked specifically with children on the Autism spectrum.  This training has allowed me to serve as a special education aide as well as in-home behavioral services and case management.  

I'm also a mother of two children who I have homeschooled, my son 16 and my daughter 5.  It is very important to me that I provided students with room to create, question, explore, and grow in an environment that strengthens their academics.
