We are an experienced team of dance educators with a passion for our students and an eagerness to share the highly influential role dance can play in a young person's life.
We hope that our students will leave our classes not only with great dance technique, but also with an increased sense of accomplishment, drive, and passion.

Lacey holds a MFA in Choreography and Performance for Dance from Mills College in Oakland, CA. She also holds a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington. Lacey’s style of teaching is a combination of all of the excellent instruction she has received throughout her numerous years of training. It is a positive, nurturing, but firm approach that combines a strong technical foundation with an understanding of the history of the movement along with anatomically correct alignment. Lacey is currently a professional dancer with two different Bay Area Companies: Jumpin' and the Sun Company and On3. She has also danced with some other notable Bay Area choreographers and teachers such as Molissa Fenley, Shinichi Iova-Koga, Marc Bamuthi Joseph, Sheldon Smith, Yukie Fujimoto, Amy Seiwert, Graham Lustig and Sonya Delwaide-Nichols, to name a few. Lacey was also chosen to be one of the few people allowed to perform “Trio A” by Yvonne Rainer, a seminal work in the post modern line of dance and has also danced in a Trisha Brown piece entitled “Planes.” While in Seattle, Lacey danced for choreographers and teachers such as Tonya Lockyer, KT Neihoff, Wade Madsen, Pat Hon, Michelle Miller, Lodi McClellan and Vivian Little. Lacey is very interested in dance history and dance academia, while also maintaining a healthy interest in the future of dance especially for students of dance or those that are close to students of dance.
