Heidi has been teaching with us since we opened in 2010. She has 7 children of her own. We absolutely love Heidi and the passion, creativity and laughter she brings to her classes. Dancers won't leave the studio without feeling loved and without a smile on their faces.

She was a member of her high school drill team for three years and is currently on the Dance Company at her local high school. We love having the talented, amazing Kaylee on our teaching staff.
Emma has been teaching with us since 2021. She has such a drive for the art of dance. Her biggest passion is choreography, always pushing moves to the next level. I've yet to meet a student that didn't adore her. We love Emma and the talent she brings to ESDA.
