A Dance Teacher Welcome!

Welcome! This is a blog especially for people who move, create, and educate. Anyone else is welcome to read it too... I hope it will be a fun and interactive outlet for me and other dance educators who work with children. My goal with this blog is to share stories, thoughts, and challenges of being a dance educator. I have wanted to start this blog for a long time and I believe that this is a great time to start!

I am a dance educator in New York City and this fall I will make the transition to the freelance world full time. It is an exciting time for me because I feel that by taking this step I have reached a goal that I have been fighting for. What an amazing feeling...

A little bit more about myself---
Currently I am a teacher for New York City Ballet Outreach Program, Mark Morris Dance Group, and York Avenue Preschool. All of these programs are extremely fulfilling and I am so grateful to be a part of them.

This fall, I am building a program of my own called Maria's Movers (more on this coming soon)

Thank you for stopping by... I hope you come back soon!

In the meantime--- movecreateeducate
