Even before his professional career as a dancer began, Andrew had already made great strides as a dance educator and choreographer. From age 15, teaching class and creating choreography at his home studio, Horizons in Dance was a natural progression in Andrew’s dance life. His award winning and nationally recognized choreography can be seen showcased throughout the country as well as in Canada at many local dance studios, dance companies and college dance teams.
Andrew has a lot to offer in his class besides his dance education and knowledge. He strives to inspire, educate, create unique movement, and make the experience of his class positive and uplifting. Being born and raised in NY has given Andrew a dynamic and eclectic eye for dance. His style of choreography represents openness for constant growth and self-discovery.
