Miss Jackie is the most patient and accommodating professional I have had the privilege to work with. She worked with my S.O. and I at a pace she knew we could handle, both being newbies to partner dancing and it being difficult for me to let him lead. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we had to end our lessons early but are looking forward to starting up again someday and learning more from her as Miss Jackie is a great teacher.

Pedro is a very professional and friendly instructor who always teaches exactly what I want to learn during the lesson. My husband and I always have a good time when working with Pedro.


I teach wedding dance, social (ballroom, country couples), waltz (travel), fox trot, chacha, rhumba, swing (2 kinds), and also slow dancing technique.

I believe in making dancing fun and not a sport. unlike some of the bigger names dance studios, I believe it is a honor when a student spend their hard earned money with me. my students are not just $ signs to me , but people that trust that I will help them achieve their goals



We offer classes in dance, music and drama for ages three to adult at a beginning to preprofessional level. We provide performance opportunities throughout the year, from classical to contemporary ballets, children's theatre and broadway shows. We are celebrating over 25 years in bringing the performing arts to Southern Wisconsin. Look at our website for further information.


I understand the basics of skills and the importance of creating a technical dancer from the beginning. My bubbly personality connects me to all types of people. I am versatile in the genres of dance I take and instruct.


We teach hip-hop to the songs of your choice -- at a slow and good pace. We keep going over it till you get it.


I am an independent contractor seeking contracts as a master's teacher, a choreographer, a judge or a convention/camp instructor. I can also be contracted as a consultant to new owner(s) or future owner(s) in developing a successful dance curriculum and/or training instructors how to teach the studio-wide curriculum, drafting a business plan for a business start-up, office and instructor management training and training guides. I have a very nice setup for a new business owner seeking support or a future owner seeking knowledge and experience. I have over 20 years of experience in the dance industry, the last 10 years at the professional level. I would describe myself as talented, articulate, and confident. I have the ability to juggle a variety of responsibilities. I have 30 years of training in ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, musical theater, hip-hop, heels, modern, tap, acro, and more. Co-owning a dance studio with my dance business help me to learn to multitask, delegate a workload, and to become an independent self-starter at most any position. I also have 15 years of experience working in political offices as a campaign manager and a legislative assistant. During my time working as the administrative assistant to the chairman of the Winnebago County Republican party during the 2004 Bush campaign, I learned a great deal about managing volunteers. I attended Columbia College. I was a choreographer for Jungle Book, Children's Theater Project, Family Smash Up, Heartland Community Church, Dream On, Friends, Love, Believe, and Arts for Life. I was an artistic director of A Christmas Angel, Lewis Dance Progressions, Dance Source Unlimited and Forest Hills Dance Company. I've been coaching and doing choreography for school dance teams across Illinois and Wisconsin. I've been judging and choreographing all over the world.


I am a professional dance instructor for private hire. I was trained in ballet, tap and jazz. I formally have a strong knowledge of solo and couple lessons.
