He has taught and DJed across the country in countless workshops, exchanges and fun events bringing all sorts of musicality to his style of dance and laughter. His teaching style has developed into a form of "Dance Zen" where he helps dancers LEARN to the history of dance as well as the patterns, not just regurgitate the steps. You will learn how to dance WITH your partner, not just AT them. From Foundations to Advanced Techniques and even Aerials, his teaching style obeys and breaks the rules by encouraging dancers to learn and create patterns on their own.
