After college and many years of teaching young children at Valders Elementary School, Miss Stacy came to the studio as a dance mom. One year of watching was enough to spark her desire to dance again and she quickly joined the adult dance class and was hired on as a teacher! With her expertise as a 4k teacher, and dance knowledge she is a perfect addition to our studio!

Mr. Shane

Tumbling Coach

Mr Shane has been quoted as an amazing motivational tumbler. He has gotten children to get some major tumbles in a span of a couple weeks and safely. He uses correct spotting, proper equipment, and the kids love him! Shane can easily do on command what we ask him to from back flips, to custom shirts and bumper stickers. Shane is an asset to the studio who seriously has our kids growing leaps and bounds, or cartwheels and aerials 😂. Mr. Shane’s class is truly one tumbling class you do NOT want to miss out on!
