Friendly, supportive environment with quality training. Our dancers are known to grow at a rapid pace and offer continuous love and encouragement to one another. Careful selection is used when choosing staff, which is why we have strong training and a genuine care for each student.

Seeing my students develop a passion for dance, when they grasp how influential dance is and the power behind connecting all you are into movement.

    Michelle takes great pride in her business! The students get the individualized attention they need and the precedence is set high. This is a giving, caring, and goal driven studio. We really appreciate the high level of creativity here!

  • Marne

    Michelle inspires students through her inspirational teaching of multiple dance forms and re-enforces life lessons for the whole studio community. I couldn’t wish for a more wonderful leader, mentor and teacher for my son.

    Soulfully Driven Dance has the best classes and instructors. The dance programs are sell choreographed and professional. Michelle, is an especially great teacher, she is so patient with the dancers and the choreography is always age appropriate. I highly reccommend SDD.

    My daughter loves dancing here! Michelle is a very creative choreographer and it shows in the dances. The teams are very respectful of each other and the positive environment that comes from the great teamwork at this studio continues to encourage the art of dance! Love it!!

  • Paige Sanchez

    Nice welcoming studio! with outstanding training

  • Marie Turner

    Soulfully Driven is an awesome studio! As an owner, Michelle has built a welcoming environment and the students have followed her lead. I specifically appreciate the number of male students and teachers that are at Soulfully Driven! So many local studios are almost entirely female; my 14 year old son has loved every minute he's spent dancing here.

  • Marjorie Carrasco

    Michelle is a phenomenal instructor. She has a genuine passion for dance and is very creative in her approach. She is also a positive influence on every student, exhibiting patience, showing love, and praise. I recommend her studio wholeheartedly.

  • Alaina Johnson

    Soulfully Driven has been a wonderful experience for my two girls. They have been there for 3ish years, in that time I have seen their confidence and even their school life improve! I would highly recommend!!!

  • Cheri Deherrera

    The staff are excellent and work very well with all ages of kids. My only suggestion of improvement would be to be more consistent in making sure classes start and end on time.

  • Maria Nuanes

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST PLACE TO DANCE!!! The teachers are such great role models, not to mention their incredible talent, and are always VERY supportive to dancers of all levels. There is a great sense of family and support from not only the teachers, but fellow students, parents and staff. The kids have great opportunity to be exposed to all styles of dance, and are free to express themselves without judgement. This is not only a dance studio, but a home away from home. AGAIN the support is incredible. SOULFULLY DRIVEN is our family for life... Thanks SD!!! We love u all!

Q & A

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Helping students develop confidence and patience. Learning comes quickest when a dancer is confident and patient in learning new things. No one is judging; we are always a work in progress.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Michelle worked for several studios and ran a professional hip-hop crew. She learned the things that worked and didn’t work in dance studios and combined this with her love of dance and teaching to build her own studio.

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching at a very young age in my home studio.  As I got older I branched out into other studios, after school programs, summer intensives, and guest classes.  I've always had a passion for teaching more than other areas of my dance journey, I feel blessed to watch a dancers journey from the beginning and see their ability and confidence grow.


What types of students have you worked with?

Several types, beginners to professionals, special needs, at risk.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently re-located to a larger studio, this has been a dream of mine and my students for years and we are now watching our dream fall into place is we build our new home.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Soulfully Driven Dance has a "Tips on Finding a Dance Studio" section on their site under the "About SD" tab.  You will find what the atmosphere of the studio should be, undertanding if there is qualified staff and other things to look for on the dance studio journey
