Decided to take 2 risks in class today:
1. Volunteering for a group
2. Taking my shirt off (don’t know where that came from but I was feeling it 😂💁🏼♀️) It kinda threw me off after for the dance and I almost slipped on it a couple times but hey, why not take risks in life? 🤷🏼♀️ Thanks for this amazing choreo & class @davioncoleman__
Song: Bed by @nickiminaj @arianagrande

Heading back to LA tomorrow morning and needed one last garage freestyle sesh
A little solo from my class I taught a week or so ago. This was a very internal dance and truly tugged deep at my emotions. Reaching for something, coming close, and falling backward is a very rough explanation of this piece. Honestly don’t even really know what the song is about but there’s always been words that have stuck out to me that I connected with. After performing this it was like a weight was lifted. Crazy how dance can be like therapy.
Song: One Way @6lack

Determined to take more heels classes in LA this time 🙌🏼 Song: Valet by @ericbellinger
classes so much lately I decided to re learn this favourite of mine 💁🏼♀️😍❤️ #milkshake
🥤🍦👅 10 days until I’m back in LA!! 💕💕 (sorry if music is off near end, stupid @instagram
A little freestyle to this bop that always makes me want to dance ❤️ Focused on footwork in this one and am honestly pretty proud because when I used to freestyle I would never really know what to do with my feet lol
We’re throwing it back to one of my self choreographed solos from last year for this #throwbackthursday
It’s definitely got some cringy moments for me to watch ahahah but there’s also some parts I really like! My transitions were awful though 😂 Hope you enjoy!
Always such a fun time with @dippdance
❤️🔥❤️ In the red pants 🙋🏼♀️💋 still getting used to dancing in this higher heel 🙈
Really needed this today. 2 ish weeks until I’m back in LA for #buildabeast2018
and to spend my summer there. This was not only one of my favourite dances I learned in LA but also the class environment this day was unforgettable. Choreo by @willdabeast__
Oops another mirror selfie 🤷🏼♀️🙈 Also how bomb is this tracksuit though 😍 #urbanplanet
Number One by @massari
Haven’t been feeling the greatest this week but pushed myself to dance anyways today so it’s definitely not my strongest but it got me movin 🙌🏼
Yup definitely posted the untrimmed version earlier 🙃 So here’s the one I meant to post lol 🤷🏼♀️
Feeling out some feelings in the studio the other day
Back home = back at it with the bedroom freestyle sessions (and @Instagram
back at it with the laggy audio ugh)
Loved this combo so much 🙏🏼 Always a pleasure in @coby5678
Wednesday classes! Highly recommended especially if you want to work on performance! 🙌🏼❤️
🎶: Wait for it - Hamilton The Musical 📍: @mdcdance
to the thing that gives me so much joy in life. ❤️ Thowback to this little freestyle.
to this fun combo! I think this was the last time I taught class in Kelowna 😱 Can’t wait to teach again in a couple weeks! Stay tuned for more info!! I’m hoping to do a range of classes from adult heels, to contemporary hip hop, to 16 and under and even tour choreography!! Who’s excited!!?? 🙋🏼♀️
It’s been a minute since I’ve danced in heels (surprisingly haven’t done many heels classes out here) but planning on taking a class later this week so felt the need to practice 😂 Made up a little combo. I’ve been doing a lot of hip hop lately but have kind of forgotten how it really feels to dance like a woman, which is very important in this industry.
🙌🏼💙🌎 (which should be everyday) Let’s respect our planet and keep it beautiful 💙 Probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever danced 😍 what a feeling I tell ya
HERE IS MY #dancewithjanet
SUBMISSION!!! Please tag the queen @janetjackson
👑 It would mean the world to me ❤️🌎🙏🏼 This is a chance of a lifetime. Janet’s music never fails to make me want to dance and always filled me up with so much joy.
*I recommend watching it with headphones to get the full experience and hear all the back beats and basses* 🎶: Damn Baby @janetjackson
Lil snippet from @willdabeast__
class the other night 🙏🏼🙌🏼 This was a fun one but a challenge! I really need to work on letting go more when I dance and stop overthinking so much because I know it feels way better to let loose, get out of my head, and just dance! Definitely a hard thing to overcome though, but’s it’s a work in progress 💙
Finally got the chance to take class from @scott4syth
the other day!!!! 😱 I was so close to getting the choreo in class so I was determined to get it outside of class. I’ve always loved Scott’s comedic and entertaining style and how he makes it look so effortless when in really this piece was fast damn 😂
Ooooo this class was a PUSH for me and I absolutely loved it 🙏🏼 thanks @djmarv625
for this choreo, for the push, and for your different and awesome style of teaching 🙌🏼 Not my strongest, but this class was a part of the process of growth and I could feel it 💪🏼
always has me in my feelings, Sunday classes with her are like therapy 😌🙏🏼 (I’m in the white crop top) also I feel like instagrams video quality is getting worse lately 🙃
Honestly I messed up in select groups so here’s my redemption 🙃 Everyone makes mistakes and yes I’m definitely mad at myself for it, but it’s in the past now so all I can do is move on and be better next time 💪🏼👊🏼 Also I like to be real with you guys and tell you because no one is perfect 🤷🏼♀️ #Mistakeshappen
and sometimes you just have to keep performing through it.
Thank you for this choreo and class @mrhamiltonevans.
Your class is always a push 🙌🏼🙏🏼
Loved this 🔥 combo from @lando_coffy
the other day! My favourite part of this video is your commentary/noises you make @lando_coffy
😂 (Sorry for the crappy video quality, doesn’t help that Instagram makes it worse, also the music lag is bad gah 😒🙃) (I’m in the Nike shirt in the middle)
, I’ve realized why I love your classes so much: It’s because I always get that feeling of falling in love with dance as if it were the first time. 💙 This class was a push for sure as I am not technically trained, nor is contemporary my main style, but this was one of my favourite classes ever. The song, the energy in the room, the feeling, the choreography, and the people made for a class to remember. Thank you. 🙏🏼💙 Make sure you check out the full video on YouTube because there are so many talented dancers featured in this video 💪🏼

Swipe for a little freestyle!!
A little clip from the archives I found. Nothing I love more than painting the music with movement, and of course to one of my favourite songs. 🎶😌 @danielcaesar
Not cleanest I have danced but it felt so good to just let go in class yesterday 🙏🏼 Thanks for this different broadway/hip hop vibe @coby5678
🙌🏼 I loved it!
This class gave me life ✨💫 Choreo by the one and only @lando_coffy
Decided to post this here too 👐🏼 This song is so intense and always gets any frustration I’m feeling out of me 👊🏼
So humbled and grateful to be able to take class with the @immabeastco
tonight. To be in a room surrounded by all my idols is so inspiring and motivating. Thank you so much @willdabeast__
for always pushing me and giving me the hunger to fight. I never walk away from your classes feeling defeated, always filled with joy and gratitude. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to guest on this special night of the first class in the new @immaspace.
Beyond grateful. Beyond blessed. Beyond inspired. 🙏🏼💙
Haven’t been posting many in class videos lately because I’m always so focused on class I never think to pull out my phone to film (as it should be tbh)
But anyways I have been taking sooooo many classes and training hard☺️
Here’s a little choreo I made up a couple weeks ago to fulfill your dance video needs 😜❤️ #brimapschoreo
Dancing feelings away (shoutout to @samantha_marie94
and her artistic eye for this capture)
Push the boundaries of your creativity. Take risks. If you hold back, you are only hurting yourself. Be different and unique, but be yourself. Take comfort in the fact that there are no rights or wrongs, just opportunities to learn from. There will be moments you like, and moments you don’t, but embrace both. Don’t get too comfortable with where you plant your roots. A tree may grow in one place, but you cannot. - Just some thoughts and feelings on this rainy day (also ignore my extremely serious concentration face 😂)
Have PURPOSE & PASSION with everything you do 🙏🏼 Don’t just live day in and day out, with the same routine. Have GOALS, have DREAMS, and have things to work towards because if not, you’ll look back on the days that have passed and be stuck in the same habits and routines without moving forward in life. 👊🏼
