Aurelia bases all of her classes around the phrase “Confidence is K.E.E.” – K.E.E. standing for KNOWLEDGE, EVALUATION, and EXPERIMENTATION. Having confidence in ones self as a person and artist is one of the most important tools needed in order to build a career of success and longevity. KNOWING who you are, EVALUATING how helpful/harmful that is to your journey, and EXPERIMENTING with ways to improve is what she strives to help each and every student explore.
In each class she pushes her students to be confident, clear, vulnerable, and daring. Her classes are geared toward going beyond the steps and really tapping into the core elements needed to take dance to the next level; including special awareness, professionalism, etiquette, style, individuality, and much more. She takes full pride in her craft and continues to train under the teachers that have fostered her teaching career, and makes sure to pass on the incredible insight they have given to her.
