Meet the coaches!
Hi guys! I have danced nearly my whole life, beginning studio when I was 2. I learned various styles of dance which include ballet, tap, hip hop, jazz, modern and lyrical. After 13 years of dancing at my studio, I began high school dance team at St Cloud Apollo, where I learned high kick and pom, and competed high kick and jazz. I was on the team for 5 years and held the role of captain during both my junior and senior years. I am one of the co-head coaches of the Knightline, and this will be my third year here. I also am in my fourth – and final – year at the University of St Thomas where I study psychology and family studies.
Hello! I am in my 3rd year as one of the co-head coaches of the Irondale Knightline. I began studio dance when I was 3 years old and continued all the way through high school. Starting in 8th grade I competed at Spotlight Productions Dance Studio in many different styles such as tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, pointe, musical theater and contemporary. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a major in math and secondary education and am now in my 5th year of teaching math at Irondale. I got married in the summer of 2015 and you can occasionally spot my husband at competitions throughout the season!
I danced for 16 years a various places: Stage Door Performing Arts, Irondale Knightline, and University of St Thomas Dance Club. I have been trained in tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, high kick, and hip hop. I coach fall dance team for Anoka High School, and winter dance team for the Knightline. This season will be my third year! I currently go to school full time at University of St. Thomas majoring in Marketing Management and work as a promotions assistant at iHeart Media for KDWB and Cities 97.
