DANCE WITH COLLEEN
1:1 Virtual Sessions - Ballet & Creative Movement
Colleen understands that kids need to move! As a very active young child, her mother put her in dance classes to provide an outlet for her constant wiggles. Having experienced the joy of having this place for expression, and having seen the confidence that is built through learning to move your body with grace, strength, and coordination, she is now passionate about providing that space for the next generation of young movers. Whether in a classroom, dance studio, or your living room, she has discovered that you can always make space to dance!
Colleen holds a BFA in Dance and minor in music from Belhaven University and has traveled around the world dancing with several performance companies. She has over 7 years of teaching experience, include teaching young children at American Ballet Theater, Steps on Broadway, New York Generation, and several daycares and schools in the NYC area. She especially enjoys working with the very youngest dancers! Colleen is an ABT® Certified Teacher, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. She is also carries a certification in Intellidance®.
Colleen is excited to sharing the joy of dance and movement with young dancers through SitterStream!
