Patti started dancing at the age of 5 and has been dancing ever since. She attended Miss Chastain’s dance studio in New Jersey, then Ken and Judy Joseph’s ballet school in Michigan City, Indiana.
Trained in both Russian and Cecchetti ballet methods, Patti has been teaching dance for more than 30 yrs. Growing up near NYC, she has a passion for musical theatre and tap dancing.
She has choreographed for dance competitions, community events and local schools, including Mona Shores Pops Concert. Meanwhile, her other “job” is being a mom and a grandmother to a very large family. Her passion for both dance and her family is something she cherishes.
