Ms. Joanne has been dancing since the age of 3 and is specialized in the social dances, which she has been teaching since 1985. For 19 years, she studied under the strict Cecchetti Ballet foundation, strengthening and emphasizing posture and core strength. At the age of 16 she began teaching Ballet and eventually transitioned into the Social Dances, where she found her true passion! She has been a part of different Ballet companies, Jazz companies and musical productions throughout California, but always came back to teaching. Throughout her life, she competed in national competitions and is an American Style Champion dancer who received the California Star Ball Top Teacher Award in 1990! Her teaching promotes posture, toning, style, and focuses on how to make the dances flow,ultimately making the dance look effortless. Joanne is looking forward to teaching dance here at Building Young Leaders where she can help everyone who wants to learn to dance and find the joy of moving smoothly, through the dance.
