What do you love about teaching quince/sweet 16 dances? 

Teaching Quinces/Sweet 16s is such a special thing within our culture. I love being part of a special day that makes the girls feel like the world revolves around them, even for one night, and having the parents feel proud of seeing their little girl grow up. Plus I get to pair my passion for dance and making dreams a reality which genuinely makes me happy. It's a moment for us but a lifetime memory for them.
