About me

I own Adventures in Dance studio in Littleton. I've been in business for 13 years and I've lived here for 20 years. My parents met and were married in Colorado, but I was born in California.

What got you into dancing?

In kindergarten, my mother signed me up for a tap dancing class. It was a disaster. I could not tell my right from my left. My mother was traumatized and banned me from dancing. I took it up in college to spite her. My music teachers recommended dance to help me with complex rhythms and I joined the social dance club at San Jose State University and became the secretary of the club.

How did you get into teaching dance?


I went to other studios to research new steps. I went to an Arthur Murray Dance Center and the owner offered me a job. I've taught ballroom, Latin, swing, salsa and runway dance lessons ever since.

What do you like about living and doing business in Littleton?

I like the Mayberry feel of old town Littleton, and I like living in a place where everyone knows my name.

Do you have any hobbies besides dance?

I produce historically accurate cartoon princess dances that are used by the Frontier Girls Club. I also like to hike, including 14ers, and I sing in a funeral choir. I also sew, and I make many of my own costumes for my dances.
