About Me

I am excited to be a part of your journey into the spirit of dance, music, fitness and health. My mission through movement is for one to enhance self expression and for all to unite in rhythm. This experience onstage and life I’ve learned to fully share with everyone, simply having fun with the Zumba fitness program!


Born in Israel, I trained in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Folk and Hip-Hop techniques through the mentorship of Rose Kassel at the Bat-Dor Dance School where I later joined their company and worked with world renowned choreographers. In NYC I was a principle dancer with Armitage Gone! Dance, Earl Mosley's Diversity of Dance, Madonna's "Smirnoff Nightlife Exchange" and commercials such as Coca Cola and Nokia. I've since been honored to receive the Princess Grace Award and American Israel Cultural Foundation Scholarships.


I work to empower people of all ages through movement be it in major institutes, impoverised areas, schools or domestic violence shelters. I have also directed events/outreach programs internationally, which instill the values of education, culture and art in the lives of youth. 

My performance, teaching and choreographic experience has expanded throughout Europe, Israel, Japan, the Philippines and the US in major institutions such as the Ailey School, Princeton University, Peridance Center, Bat-Dor, Thelma Yelin Performing Arts School, Ballet Philippines, Philippine High School for the Arts and the University of the Philippines. 

I also study and dance Argentine Tango socially in order to connect with people who are ALL performers and artists at heart, just like you. My passion is only of value if it can be shared with you. Thanks for visiting my website. Let's break a sweat and have fun together. 


I look forward to ZUMBA with you!
