My very first DanceLife Teacher Conference was in 2013! On the plane ride there, I kept thinking, What am I doing spending this money right now? I was negotiating my first studio lease at the time. I ended up signing the dotted line on my lease and faxed it while I was there!

On the plane ride home, my thoughts shifted to, This was the best decision to come here. I remember coming home and putting so much of what I learned into place to open my first studio space just 1 1/2 months later!

I have attended many other conferences as well as seminars at the DanceLife Retreat Center. Every one is better than the last. I am so thankful for all the tools and knowledge Rhee Gold and his organizations have provided me with over the years, as well as some amazing friendships and colleagues who I can always turn to for advice!

DDA would not be what it is today without this in my life #dltcstilldancing
