Meet the Teachers

The Campbell School instructors work together to create a warm, welcoming, and focused class environment that allows dancers to work and grow to their fullest potential.  With varying backgrounds in dance and athletics, each teacher brings her own expertise to the classes. While class is structured to bring the best dancer out of each student, there is an emphasis on fun, good sportsmanship and teamwork.
