On My Toz originated in 1989. I started with two semi-private classes per week with at total of eight students. As of 1998, I am currently running fourteen semi-private classes per week with a total of fifty-eight students.

I am currently working towards my certification for Dance Educator with the Chicago Dance Masters Association. I meanwhile attend dance workshops and dance training schools with Chicago Dance Masters Association and American Academy of Ballet so that I may further assist my students in their educational program.
