- What inspired the change in ownership for Sunshine Dance?
I have been a part of Sunshine Dance’s journey for the past few years, but I am so excited to be able to put my personal stamp on it now that I am the owner. I have big dreams for Sunshine Dance and can’t wait to share them with the fabulous Glen Ellyn community.
- How do you find staff to bring into your organization that truly care about Sunshine Dance the way you do?
I am so blessed to have an INCREDIBLE staff that share my same ideals for the quality and type of dance education I want to offer. They all care about the students so much and put their heart and soul into each and every class they teach.
- Why should Glen Ellyn Moms send their kids to Sunshine Dance?
I truly believe that we have the best education and quality to offer the Glen Ellyn community and surrounding areas. Our instructors are so passionate about not only teaching dance but instilling confidence, discipline, passion, and providing an outlet for students of all ages to express themselves and their creativity!

- What is the most rewarding thing about being a new business owner:
The most rewarding thing about being a teacher/business owner is seeing the difference dance can make in a child’s life. I see students who come in at the beginning of the year very shy and throughout their experience in class gain confidence and an ability to express their emotions more freely. We get so many parents that tell us what a difference they see in their student’s ability to speak in front of their peers and overall confidence they exude in a public setting after participating in dance. Dance and theatre changed my life as a young boy and I am so grateful that I get to share my love of the arts with students every day and see first hand the difference it makes in their lives.
