Justine is a wonderfully inspiring person who has helped me realize, dance training and life training are one in the same.
She has allowed me to flourish as a dancer and begin my path to following my aspirations.
— Alyssa Favero, 2016 RAP Student
With Justine’s personalized feedback and creative processes we were able to improve both our technical and artistic abilities. It was such an inspiring experience full of hard work and joy. Through sweat and laughter everyone left class as better dancers.
