Ms. Alicia's Message


I started dancing at my mom's dance school, Northwest School of Dance, in Michigan at the age of 3.  Dance has always brought a smile to my face and happiness to my heart.  As a teacher, I love to see my students learn and jump for joy when they gain new skills.  I love to see them become more confident and their parents proud.  I love to see them grow.

It is my belief that practice builds skill, skill builds confidence and friendship adds fun.  I want my students to have fun, be confident, make friends, and gain skills.  Accomplishing this will contribute to the success of their life inside and outside of dance.

At Move It! Dance Project, students get to “practice confidence with friends while dancing and having fun.”
