Currently, Angie is choreographing and teaching at dance and fitness studios throughout Central Florida.“My goal as a teacher is to develop a dancer into an artist from the inside out! While technique is important for a career as a dancer, helping my students build their personal character is something that will help them throughout their lifetime. There is more to dance than throwing on a pair of tights & leo and kicking your leg to your ear. Cultivating discipline, skill, integrity and appreciation for dance as an art form is HUGE in my book.”
