Meet the Team
"I work with 2dance2dream because I believe that everyone deserves an opportunity, especially in the arts that are so expressive, personal, and celebratory. I want to see more doors open in the arts for individuals of all abilities and all backgrounds, first for my sister and then in the whole country."
"Dancing has always been a part of my life. I began dancing at the age of 3 and danced throughout college. After graduating, I became an Occupational Therapist and worked with individuals who have special needs throughout all stages of life. I moved to Austin five years ago and found 2dance2dream through a flyer at a local coffee shop. I knew I had to be a part of this amazing organizing that celebrates Individuals of all abilities through the art of dance."
"I grew up at the dance studio with the feeling like it was a second home. My older sister, who was born with cerebral palsy, always wanted to try dance. It was extremely difficult for her to find a place that made her feel welcome and supported. I told my mom, 'One day, I want to make sure kids with special needs can dance, too.' I'm proud to say not only are we providing these opportunities through 2dance2dream, but we are also changing lives."
"I work with 2dance2dream because I believe everyone deserves a chance to explore one's love for the arts and dance in a caring and fun environment. Seeing our students with a smile on their face brings me joy and it only encourages me to work harder. The kids inspire me and many of those around them with their confidence and creativity."
