She has had 25 years of design experience in both fresh and silk flowers.

This class is a combination class divided with 20 minutes of tap and 25 minutes of ballet. The technical training is taught through ballet, which in turn helps teach the proper shifting of weight and patterns in movement for tap.

Class will be taught by Creative Movement and Dance (CMD), a mobile dance program which operates at locations throughout the Atlanta area.
