Q. Favourite music?

A. Anything that moves me, whether its a 90’s throwback,  a beautiful voice accompanied with a piano, a fun country song, or hard hitting hip-hop.

Q. What do you do when you’re not at the studio?

A. Hanging with my family. I love coffee and kids and meditation. Finding seaglass at the beach, and learning and growing.

We absolutely love the energy that Miss Andrea brings to class. She is so uplifting and encouraging with all the dancers.

Her positive nature helps reflect in the excitement the dancers show. She is amazing at building the dancers confidence. Miss Andrea brings many elements of fun into each class along with their regular disciplined routine.
