Selena started her teaching career at Faubourg ballet as well as a studio in Miami. In addition to teaching, she has also assisted with an LA dance tour. She loves all forms of dance, but especially contemporary. Ms. Selena looks forward to sharing her passion for the arts with all of the students at All That Dance.
Ms. Kat has always dreamed of being an instructor at All That Dance as she says the studio was a huge part of her life growing up. She interned and substitute taught for us in previous years. We are delighted to welcome her back with her own class again this year!
MG studied dance at her local studio before heading to Hope College to continue her dance education and become a member of their dance company. Her choreography has been featured locally and abroad. Ms. MG teaches throughout the Chicago area. Her teaching philosophy is based on actively engaging her class, communicating goals and objectives clearly and inspiring her students to reach those goals. We are lucky to have added her to our staff!
Note From Our Director
We know that most parents worry about finding a safe and loving environment to enrich their children. That’s why I created All That Dance. We are a neighborhood dance studio that becomes a second home for the entire family. We hope you will join our family as we head into our 29th year.
