My Philosophy: Lessons Learned, Lessons Shared
This life, especially Salsa dancing, has provided me with so many incredible opportunities to learn and grow. Through my career, teaching at different events around the world every weekend, I have been able to share those experiences and that growth with the global dance community.
The initial lessons I learned and shared had to do with my increased body awareness and technical proficiency with the dance itself. Over time, I began to see the equally, if not more, important role that mindset, presence, communication, and meaningful relationships played in my personal and professional growth, the achievement of my goals, the depth of my connections, and the enjoyment of each and every moment.
Every new insight I gain, I enthusiastically share with my students, through specialty lectures and seminars that focus on the elements of mindful practice, intention setting, clear communication, commitment, boundaries, and free and fearless expression.
It is inspiring to see how the application, impact, and benefit of these lessons extend way beyond the dance floor, into my students’ personal lives, their homes, their relationships, and their careers.
As I expand my presentations and workshops from dance events to TEDx, Toastmasters, Wonder Girls, Modern Moves, educational institutions and business organizations, I can see the unmistakable value of not only the lessons I share, but the unique perspective I am able to provide as a result of my salsa dancing experience.
Every occasion I have to speak is a privileged opportunity to positively influence and improve the lives of those around me, dancers and non-dancers alike.
