•●◉✿ Student of the Week ✿◉●•
Congrats to this week's Student Aliyah!
From Miss Katy:
"I love having Aliyah in class! Every week she comes into class prepared and ready to learn. I love how focused she is and she pushes to be the best version of herself each week. You can tell she loves to dance, and that she loves to be at the studio with her friends. Aliyah is an awesome student!"
From Miss Annie:
"Aliyah is terribly sweet. She always uses her manners and is so respectful. I love her smile and feel pretty lucky to get one sent my way once in awhile. She works hard in class and I love watching how her brain works! Love having Aliyah at Fearless so much and want to keep her forever!"
Everyone who comes into the Fearless Dance building will be checked with a no touch thermometer.
We have time between classes to sanitize and clean everything. The space between classes will also allow the class to leave before the next class arrives, minimizing the people you may come in contact with.
Because we are allowing fewer people in the building, parents will drop off their children with the teacher at the door as well as pick up. If your child isn't potty trained or there are other needs, please discuss with Miss Annie and we can allow exceptions with social distancing in the lobby.
During dance class, there are 6 ft square boxes with tape marked on the ground. Each child will stand in their own box to dance! For tumble classes, there will also be spaces marked and each child will have a row to "tumble down".
Before class starts, the instructor will have each child wash their hands. During class if a child sneezes or touches their face, they can use the wall mounted sanitizing stations to sanitize and quickly get back to class! After class, the instructor will have each child wash their hands before escorting them to the door and their parent.
I’m a mom of a 9 year old boy and a 6 year old girl (she will be my very dedicated assistant!) and we’ve lived in the Graham area for the last 10 years. I work part time as a Dental Hygienist (I love teeth!) but my passion has always been kids. I can’t wait to get to know all of their personalities and to help them explore their love of dance!
Miss Susanne will be teaching some of our creative movement classes!
I have been dancing for 21 years, dance is my passion and I absolutely love teaching! I’ve competed for six years and have learned so many skills throughout the years! I’ve trained in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical/contemporary, and hip hop. Hip hop is my favorite genre to dance and teach! I can’t wait to grow with your little ones!
Miss Sydni will teach tap, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, and some creative movement classes!
I am 18 years old and have been a dancer since I was 5, and I have been teaching for 3 years now! I am currently teaching at Elite School of Dance and MW Fitness. My favorite style of dance has always been Contemporary because it is where I feel I get to express myself and connect with my inner emotions the most. I love working with kids and my goal as a teacher is to share my love of dance with them, have fun, and hopefully, they get the opportunity to do the same when they get older!
Miss Katy is teaching tap, jazz, and hip hop!
I'm a Washington native with a love for dance, community and supporting businesses. Wife to my high school sweetheart & homeschooling mom of 2. My daughter has attended Fearless for a couple years now. I've danced professionally off and on throughout my life and ran my own Zumba classes for several years. Fearless feels like home and I love to promote it!
Miss Brooke is our social media and marketing coordinator!
I grew up in Tri-Cities, WA and moved to Graham the summer of 2020. I studied at BYU-Idaho to receive my Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science. I earned my group fitness certifications to teach Body Combat, Body Flow, Les Mills Barre, and Water in Motion. Since then, I have been working as a Personal Trainer and group fitness instructor at Golds Gym. My husband and I and our two kiddos love camping and hiking together. I love reading and the fantasy genre is my favorite.
Miss Nachelle will be teaching our kids fitness classes!
I grew up in Graham, WA and have a deep love for the PNW! I’ve been married to my rockstar of a husband for ten years and we have three sweet and spicy little girls. I have my bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology. I love using my education to teach fitness and help others find fulfillment through movement almost as much as I love ice cream. I love to read, play sports, bake, play games, sing, and play the piano. I’ve been a piano teacher since high school, and I love to see the joy that music brings. I am a firm believer in musical education for children and love to be a part of that process.
Miss Taylor teaches Barre Fusion and is our preschool music teacher!
I love the outdoors! I am a Wildlife Ecologist and I've been studying the homestead for several months now. I am so excited to share what I've found and go on so many adventures! In my free time I love being outdoors, spending time with my family, and gardening!
Miss Dani is heading up our STEM program with the preschool!
I have a degree in Elementary Education and have spent many years working with young children. Being the oldest of 5, my experience with kids started early on! In addition to teaching at the elementary level, I've also homeschooled my three children and several of our foster children at the preschool level. I love the minds and creativity of the Littles! I love cooking, hiking, camping, good books, and being silly with my husband and kids!
Mrs. King is one of our preschool teachers!
Aloha, I’m Mandy, and I am originally from Northern California, where I was chosen to train in classical ballet when I was 3 years old. For almost 12 years, I enjoyed performing with, and competing at, local, state and regional levels. At 15, I decided to retire from professional training and instead enjoy dance for recreation. I took jazz, tap, ballroom, line dancing, breakdancing, modern, and contemporary, but my favorite will always be ballet.
Mandy runs our ballet program which now includes pointe!
My name is Annie Dodd and I'm the mother of two spunky girls, two very sweet boys, and a crazy ragamuffin doggy. My husband is ultra hunky, ultra handy, and ultra supportive. I adore kids, everything sweet, naps, reading, and parties. I own Fearless and also teach a few classes, which is what I enjoy most!
