"Owning Dancers' Corner and teaching dance is a dream come true! I enjoy sharing my love of dance with our students. My true passion is creating our Ballet production each year! Bringing a story to life through dance and seeing the students take on the character roles given to them brings joy to my heart."
We are excited to have several of our students as teachers, who have tested or are training to test through the Southern Association of Dance Masters for certification on their knowledge of dance concepts, terminology, technique, and teaching practices! Many of our Senior Company students volunteer as class assistants or work as Junior Instructors, too. They help with organization and flow of classes by being role models and demonstrators for our younger students. They often lead the warm up portion of classes. Our Junior Instructors are in our teacher training program, and are qualified to substitute a class with an adult present, if needed.
