"Sun-Mi shows students
how to understand dance movement from within,
improving alignment, strength, flexibility, articulation, and musicality." 

— Anne Gilley

With over 15 years of teaching experience, over the last three years I became even more dedicated to nurturing dancers and non-dancers alike to pursue the art of dance.  I believe dance embodies the heart, spirit and body.  My mission as a teacher is to nurture you as a person first and as a student of dance second.  I believe that where the heart goes the body will follow.  I have a hands-on approach with an exceptional eye for healthy alignment and kinestetic articulation.

Many of my students supplement their daily dance classes with private coaching sessions, where efficient movement patterns can be identified and established increasing overall performance, kinesthetic awareness and performance longevity.
