PERSONALIZED. COMPREHENSIVE. FUN.
As a life-long dancer with a background and training in classical and contemporary performing arts, I recognize the potential in each one of my students. With my specialized approach, I’ve seen students’ self-esteem and skill-set consistently rise. I take pride in teaching people who are eager to expand their talents and skills, and I bring a depth of professional expertise to those who strive to excel.
Offering personalized classes at affordable prices, students enjoy the fun and focused lessons while improving areas of difficulty. Since starting as a private teacher in 2000, I've provided Dayton-area students with lessons in a variety of fields. The results are a testament to the fact that this system works. I’m a patient, adaptable, positive, and professional instructor excited to work with you to reach your goals.
I love what I do, and I'm happy to share this passion with others. Get in touch today so we can start working together!

CAN I REALLY LEARN HOW TO DANCE?
Of course! I have taught many people of all ages how to dance. Everyone has a unique learning style, and it’s my duty to find out what that is and adapt my lessons accordingly. My goal is for you to have a good time while learning.
DO I NEED A PARTNER TO TAKE LESSONS?
Not at all! In group classes, partners rotate frequently so that you meet new people and practice with different partners whether you are leading or following. In private lessons, I will be your partner.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO CLASS?
Whatever you are comfortable in! Common attire you will see at the studio: skirts, slacks, jeans, t-shirts, polo shirts, dresses, and workout clothes. It is best to avoid flip flops and shoes with sticky rubber soles.
CAN YOU HELP WITH MY WEDDING DANCE?
Absolutely! I love working with wedding couples and bridal parties to create a special dance that will be unforgettable. No matter what your dancing experience is, you will be having fun and make lasting memories.
“At first I was apprehensive about learning with a private teacher. But after just 5 minutes of my first lesson, I quickly got over my fears and began to appreciate the first-rate attention and guidance. Stacy was patient, engaging, and adapted the lessons to how I learned best. I never knew I could have so much fun while consistently growing as a dancer! ”
