JUNE 2016 - Teaching!
I had the best time teaching at Nagata Dance Studio's week long Musical Theatre Camp! 
Check out the awesome "Lost Ladies" performing an excerpt of "I Won't Grow Up" from Peter Pan the Musical: 

Ms. Kang successfully engaged all 16 students who ranged from age 6-12 years old. I recommend her as an inspiring and uplifting teacher who cares deeply for her students’ growth.
