progress... often going the extra distance to help them improve.
Marcus began teaching dance in 2008 in Colorado. He has danced with students and other professionals in numerous performances, shows, and competitions across the country and is excited to share his experience and talents with Pacific Grove Dance. He has a wide range of interests and an eclectic skill set, both of which help him relate to students. Marcus started dancing because it looked like fun, and it is still fun for him. There is always something new to learn or try and it keeps his mind stimulated. One of his favorite parts of teaching is helping students transform a goal that initially seemed daunting into one that is easily attainable. He also enjoys performing in showcases and loves the excitement and challenge of competitions.
