Being a dancer has always been a big part of who I am

It all began when

I’ve been dancing since I was the age of 3, amassing experience in styles of ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and pointe.

Partner Dancing 101

In college I entered the world of partner dancing through lindy hop and eventually into west coast swing.

Learned from the best

West coast swing has been my passion since 2009 and I have trained with many of the top champions.

Put it to the test

Currently I compete at an All Star level in west coast swing, and have put multiple routines on the floor in rising star, pro am, and team.

Countdown Swing Boston

Countdown Swing Boston


The first year I went to New Years Dance Extravaganza — now Countdown Swing Boston — was the end of 2013. I couldn’t have imagined then that 8 years later, I would take over as Event Director of this event. I was just trying to survive my first spotlight and I was in awe of everyone and everything around me. I don’t remember the details, but I remember being surrounded by friends, the celebration, and the high of ringing in the new year surrounded by a community I love dearly.

Year after year as I got more involved, I saw the heart and soul of this event was one where from the top down the motivation was to get it right, and to have a party while doing it.

I will do my best to continue the spirit of what Bill and Yuna have started. I will also adapt and bring new ideas to the table and thread them in each year, with the intent to make this event even more welcoming and joyful each year.

Private and Event Instruction

Private Lessons

Focus shifts to the specific goals of the individual student (or couple). In addition to refining the basics, privates are a great way to tailor your learning experience to match your specific dance goals. Connection and compression are the most important concepts of west coast swing, and when taught in group class, it can be difficult to master. Working one on one during private lessons with me, I can help you develop these concepts as a leader or follower. Even more, west coast swing is a dynamic dance with plenty of creative opportunities to put “make it your own” and private lessons are the perfect setting for focusing on developing your unique style.
