By focusing every student’s dance education around technique and passion, Angela’s goal is to strive towards building the best well-rounded dancers there can be. After having her son in 2011 she developed her Barre program which is now called C.S.F. in effort to get back into shape. This program focuses on cardio, strength and flexibility. With the help of her strong dance background the program has taken off. In 2015 she developed a training program to certify other teachers in PRANA’s C.S.F. Barre.
