In order to supplement her dance tuition, she began teaching at a very young age. She was teaching at the age of sixteen at her local dance school and continued doing so throughout high school and college. Connie received her B.A. from Rutgers University and studied dance throughout college.
In 2002, she decided to go back to her roots and began teaching dance again in numerous studios in the area. She has taught every dance style, including ballet, jazz, tap, creative movement and hip-hop. In addition to dance and raising her three children, Connie has experience working with children who have learning differences in an academic setting. She feels that this work has been helpful in understanding how all children learn and has definitely made her a better overall teacher.
As Director of Inner Grace Dance for the past 10 years, Miss Connie has navigated the studio through a fire, expansion and the pandemic. During these obstacles she has continued to manage the studio with the original mission statement as her guide. She hopes that throughout this journey she has been an example of what it is to have and show grace.
