Andrea is the director of Los Gatos Ballet’s Open Program. Her goals for this program are to create a space where dancers of various ages, backgrounds and experience levels can enjoy and study the art of ballet not as solo dancers but as a ballet family. Andrea's focus through class is to provide exercises that rejuvenate the soul and balance and strengthen the body. She brings inspiration to each daily class with a "Theme of the Day" such as Magical Mondays, Thinking Thursdays and Sensational Saturdays. She also encourages continued growth in ones understanding of ballet vocabulary with a "Word of the Day".
She is also the team coach and choreographer for Los Gatos High School’s Dance Team as well as a coach for the Santa Clara Aquamaids Synchronized Swimming Team. She has a passion for all types of dance and finds no greater joy then to be given the opportunity to share the art of dance to those who want to learn.
