I’m the owner and director of Columbia Dance Academy and living my dream is what I’m doing now. Owning your own business and being in-charge is probably one of the best things to ever happen to me. Dance has just been my passion for as long as I can remember. I started when I was three and I never really stopped. There was a break there for a little while when I went to college and got a degree and I actually worked in the business world for 14 years or so before I came back to the dance world. And once that decision was made, there was no going back. I feel like I’m exactly where I need to be, at exactly the time I need to be here and I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life.
