Live Classes with Teacher Feedback 

The staff includes Miss Jessica, Miss Evi, and Miss Asha. All have extensive backgrounds in dance and either hold a certification with various dance associations or are currently being mentored in the specialized Twinkle Star teacher training program. Many staff have grown up at the studio so they know and have lived the studio motto “Every ‘Body’ Can Dance”.

The teachers goal is to bring the love of dance into their classrooms to encourage, inspire and educate students in this new world of online learning.
