Veronica, can step into any classroom and immediately capture her audience’s attention. Her biggest asset is in creating recreational dance programs and curriculum where none exist. She loves teaching people and believes dance is a tool for personal development; this is the fundamental for all her programs.
By age 16, Veronica was teaching dance and fitness through multiple city recreational departments. She witnessed that her program ideas impacted the lives of at risk youth, therefore found it necessary to open up her own dance studio at the age of 19. As a dance studio owner, the application of her programs brought immediate studio growth. Her unique class setup for Quinceañeras, special needs, toddlers and adults had a lasting impact on her students. Running a traditional dance studio was not her passion after five years, she was brave enough to step away.
She then continued to teach, manage and develop dance and fitness programs for other organizations. Veronica has a charming outgoing son with a unique perspective; her journey as a parent of a child with autism has been the turning point for her to realize that her programs have to be put in the hands of dance educators for the benefit of generations to come. This is why she created the programs, Moves Made 4 Me™ inclusive dance curriculum for kids with special needs and La Quinceanera Dance Program™ the original dance program for Quinceañeras and DanceMinds Recreation Program™, systems derived from over a decade of first hand client experience in the field. Veronica is super excited about the development of DanceMindsLLC™.
