industry INTENSIVE

Mission: U

At a young age I dreamt of being in music videos, dancing on movie sets and traveling the world dancing on tour.   I knew I had to move to L.A. but wasn’t really sure the steps to take or what to expect once I got to Hollywood.   I wish I had somebody to share with me their tips and secrets to the Industry.  This is why I’ve decided to share my knowledge and past 15 years of experience in the industry with those wanting to jump start their dance career.


Join me for a 1 on 1, 2 day intensive look into the artist that you are and want to become.   My goal, to make my students knowledgeable in all aspects of the entertainment industry from auditioning techniques to performing on stage as well taking a look behind the scenes into the business and production aspect of the industry. I also want to teach my students to be comfortable in their own skin and in their own movement. Present yourself like a Pro and start living your dreams now!


Uncertain? Feeling Stuck? Unsure on what your next step is or how to even get started in the Commercial Dance Industry? Uncomfortable free styling?  Wish you could pick up choreography faster? Nervous around Cameras? Want to set yourself apart from all the others?
Whether your dreams are to tour the world dancing for top recording artists or dancing on television, in movies, and in music videos I’m offering the chance to learn insider tips and industry secrets on what it takes to make your dreams a reality.  


1 on 1, 2 day Full Circle industry program broken down into 5 sessions.
This 1 on 1 time will allow me to dive deep into you as an artist, dancer, and human.  Teaching you how to deal with the nerves of auditioning and being confident in front of the camera also clearing up any uncertainties you may have about an industry that is ever changing.  In these 5 sessions we will work on your resume, bio, tips for head shots, start building your video content, learn audition and work etiquette for consistent work, and get an insider’s look into the production of shows.  Start planning for the future now.  Whether you’re a dancer who’s looking to transition into the next aspect of their career or a fresh face to the L.A. dance scene and have questions on how to get started these sessions will give you the edge that it takes to book work and have longevity in a fast paced industry.
