It is an honor to be considered for the position of Member-at-large for the National Dance Society. In this capacity I hope to expand upon the work I am currently doing as the Social Media Chair, in which I assist in disseminating organizational and related information to our members and supporters via Facebook Instagram. In this new capacity my goal would be to ensure NDS remains visible and actively connected to the dance community on the local, state, and global levels, ensuring that information ties into our mission and supports those it serves.
As a dance professional and educator, I have held a strong belief that the arts are the perfect catalyst for creativity, discipline, and perseverance in both youth and adults. I have sought to empower others through the medium of dance and have done so through lesson planning, in class and after school instruction and assisting instructors with less experience. I am passionate about strengthening the work of educators through creative professional development and cross curricular work within the academic setting. It is with the same passion I will take on the role of Member-at-large and assist the President and the Board in continuing to attain its goals.
