Performing Arts Education
Miss Thera found her love for the performing arts at the young age of three when she took her first steps into a dance studio. Throughout her life she has studied dance as well as theater and fine arts locally and nationally. Her training includes work in classical ballet, contemporary, modern dance, musical theatre, hip hop, jazz, tap, lyrical, belly dance and more. She realized her passion for arts education in her early adult life after spending years struggling through traditional school, while thriving in the arts. Her goal as an educator is to create positive educational experiences for all students through the arts, and to help her students find their passion and grow their artistic skills.

"Very fun class for my daughter. She was practicing her dance all night after the class ended and even did a performance for us. This is her second class with Miss Thera. My 8 yo finds her class easy to follow with clear instructions, and looks forward to more classes in the future. "
