Tell us about yourself:
Semi-retired dance and fitness professional. Because of the virus, not teaching at the moment. I like to read, cook, garden and write. Two years ago I had a children's book on healthy eating, THE VILLAGE OF ENSALADA, published. I had my own dance school and three children's dance companies. I sub at various dance schools, am a consultant and still do private choreography.
Area of knowledge and what I know well:
I am a Master teacher of aquatic, which means I train others to teach. I also have taught land fitness, drama, music, dance and pre-school.
