Leggz Dance Academy, Inc
Leggz is starting it's 30th year! We are the oldest dance studio in Osceola County. I am one of 5 teachers in the state of Florida to be certified by the Royal Academy of Dance, which is the largest and oldest dance organization in the world.
We have a set syllabus for all of our classes which promotes consistency amongst the teachers. Parents may watch every class, as we have viewing windows.
Leggz is non-competitive. I feel that my job as a dance teacher is not to get your child a trophy, but to make sure that they can get a job in the world of dance. And dance should be FUN, not stressful. Leggz is a family environment, and we have many second generation students.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Students are placed in the appropriate level class for their age and ability. A student does not move to the next level until they have accomplished all of the skills in the previous level, and we will work with students to make sure they can reach their goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been dancing for 50 years and teaching for 32. I am one of only 5 teachers, in the state of Florida, to be registered with the Royal Academy of Dance. Each year, I must complete 20 additional hours. All of my tumbling instructors are U.S.A. Gymnastics Safety Certified.

How did you get started teaching?
I have always loved passing along my knowledge to children and adults, and making sure that they are taught correctly. The US is the only country in the world that doesn't require a license to teach dance. That is why I became certified with the RAD.
What types of students have you worked with?
We teach students ages 18 months through adults.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
This past year, we had our first boy graduate who started in Little Stars, which means he was 1 year old when he started. We have had several girls accomplish this, but never a boy.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would say to check their certification. Ask what style of ballet they teach, (American is not a style), and avoid competition for young students.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What are your goals as a dancer? Are you here for fun, or are you looking for a professional career?
