My love for dance started at The Dance Connection at the age of 5. My Mom enrolled me in every class possible. I studied ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip hop, Latin, Irish, and clogging. The list could go on forever. I have trained with many of today’s hottest teachers and choreographers. Growing up I attended numerous workshops at “Broadway Dance Center” and have taken classes from Dave Scott, Brian Freidman, Mia Michaels and Tabitha D’umo, just to name a few. After high school I continued my dance education at University of North Carolina at Charlotte on a scholarship. During my college years I danced for the “Carolina Force” and “Charlotte Hounds.” I have been teaching dance since 2006 and started choreographing for competitive teams since 2010. I am lucky enough to have worked with some amazing dancers that have helped me win several awards over the years.
Own The Stage Dance Academy offers dance instruction at a recreational and competitive level. Our intensive classes will focus on dance technique, strength training, flexibility, safety, and teamwork. Although we have many goals for our OTS dancers, having fun is one of our main priorities! At OTS we look forward to providing both children and adults a quality dance education with a personal touch.
We take pride in providing a nurturing atmosphere to enable students to reach their fullest potential and build their self-esteem while experiencing the true joy of dance. We believe that in building self-esteem we can help build strong, confident people who will excel in everyday life. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for creativity, exploration, personal expression and growth to members of our community.
