Kerry Richarson

Principal Teacher

There is no other thrill than seeing a young dancers eyes light up when they finally master a skill.  It could be an aerial trick, pirouette, a cartwheel or skipping.  I am so lucky to be a part of so many firsts in our young dancer’s lives.

I love the feeling my students get when they achieve a skill they have been working so hard to master. The joy and excitement on their faces shows me how much they love what they do and how hard they worked to achieve this skill.

Brooke Bowne

Allstar Cheer

I love seeing the friendships and comradery amongst the teams that form over the year. Cheerleading is such an inclusive sport where every person makes such an impact on a routine so the teams naturally form such great bonds because of that. I love being a part of that, as well as helping the kids push themselves to achieve more than what they thought they could.
