1:1 Coaching Programs




The Confident Dancer YouTube Channel for the last 10 years! (formerly called TwinTalksBallet)


Speaking at ballet schools throughout the US & Internationally


I help dancers through...

Preparation to deliver their personal best performances at auditions and competitions

Help overcoming the mental blocks that keep them tensing up during difficult movements or stuck in a cycle frustration that impacts their self-esteem and performance

Developing confidence in their ability and what they have to offer so they can make the leap from student to professional or to a better professional opportunity

Releasing self-doubt, fear, or insecurities that have been sucking the joy out of dance for years so they can experience their art as a passion again

Developing self-trust so they can take artistic risks, make big career decisions with confidence, and advocate for themselves when it really matters

Become the master of their own mind and focus so they can get the most out of class, perform optimally in rehearsals, and even tap into freedom and flow as they perform on stage

Dancers come to me for...

Professional dancers from top companies such as New York City Ballet, Houston Ballet, Boston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Miami City Ballet, and more.
 

Pre-professional dancers from schools such as Houston Ballet Academy, Joffrey Ballet School, The Harid Conservatory, and universities such as Indiana University, University of Utah, Pointe Park, and more.

From it's humble beginnings in 2011 (and by "humble" I mean filming alongside my twin sister on our webcam), The Confident Dancer (formerly called TwinTalksBallet) has grown into a global online community of well over 20,000 dancers on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. 

The Confident Dancer is a platform where I share everything I wish I knew on my journey as a young, aspiring dancer trying to work her way up from a small studio. Whether you are looking for tips on how to rock audition season or you want to know the honest, rarely discussed truth about real issues within the dance community, you're sure to find a video or an Instagram post that speaks to whatever point you find yourself at in your dance journey.
