"Carlingford School of Dance has been in my life since 1999, when I was 3 years old, 2018 was my 20th year dancing with CSOD. Dancing for me is an opportunity to grow, as it enables me to develop skills in both the discipline of dance and also in performance quality. As a dancer that has grown up at CSOD, I have learnt not only the importance of technique and control but also how dance is transformative and allows children to use movement as a platform of expression. The excitement of nailing a tap movement, or landing a jazz turn perfectly is something that I still love, and to see the excitement of students experiencing new dance milestones is why I love teaching at the Carlingford School of Dance."
