MIKE’S PHILOSOPHY OF DANCE/CLASS DESCRIPTIONS – My style has been described as ”Athletic” because I’m full of energy and so is my movement.  I see dance as a relationship between the music, the choreographer, the dancer and the audience with a message – my message is to LIVE!!  To communicate this relationship I use three components MUSICALITY (Mind), FIGURE (Body) & PERFORMANCE (Soul) to break away thru the traditional form and technique, dirtying it up and extending it with personal flavor.  On a simple level – just have FUN and DANCE
