Lizz is incredibly passionate about this industry and welcomes any and every opportunity to pour into others and help educate. Through teaching, Lizz develops and enhances her students’ dance skills as she provides valuable insight, clear instruction and solid encouragement to those genuinely following their dreams. While her classes are not auditions, the material she covers in class will separate her students from others at their auditions.
She is incredibly thankful to reside in brilliant New York City, living the dream!
