Dance Videos

These are generally lightly edited recordings of live public dance performances of my  students, and occasionally myself. We try to upload these as soon as possible following a performance so that the students can enjoy them and show their friends and family.

 

Videos are first available on my YouTube channel and subscribers there will be notified immediately of new releases.
