Louina is RAD trained, B degree in music, ballet and dance. Music always worked out, always on time, stays later, knows all the student’s names, what they do for a living and history on past injuries and physical limitations. Treat adults with dignity and expect same level of dancing performance as children. Can sometimes be intimidating since adults can not always dance as well as children, but at least she still think we can 🙂 Best thing about her – she dances with us till we’ve learned all the moves and only then we’re on our own.
