• At our studio, it is important to us that we ask the most eligible and educated candidates to be a part of our wonderful staff. Every one of our instructors has a bachelors degree or higher, or currently on track to earn various degrees in a variety of professional fields. Several of our staff members are working on or have earned their Master's Degrees or higher as well. This includes owner and creative director, Mary Knestrick. In 2009, she received her Masters Degree in Education with specializations in Children's Literature and Special Education and ESOL Endorsements and training.

    We believe that hiring responsible, young, and fresh instructors only translates into the broad success of our student body. All of our instructors have experience and/or professional work & certification in their performing arts fields.

    We also feel very strongly that many of our advanced dancers should use the studio opportunity to gain experience assisting and interning at the studio; however, you will never see a student teaching or in charge of a class under the age of 18 years old.
