My careerI live in Lone Tree. I am a dance teacher at Ovation Academy of Dance. I mostly do ballet and mostly teach from 18 months up to … as far as they go. Mostly here (at Ovation) I do up to 18, 19. I teach them how to do the basics of ballet.The best part of my jobOh, my gosh, watching them grow and to move on to something even better. It's amazing.
