We were fortunate enough to be under Miss Lizzy's guidance and expertise during the early years of both our girl's dance career.  Miss Lizzy was professional, creative, patient, fun, kind, caring, and had an enthusiasm for dance that cannot be matched.  Our girls still talk about what they learned from Miss Lizzy both on the dance floor and off.  Her personality is contagious and heartwarming to both young and teen dancers.  We miss you Miss Lizzy and are so excited to hear about your new adventure spreading your experience to the west coast.  Anyone will be lucky to experience your natural born talent and zest for dance!

Miss Lizzy is an incredible, one-of-a-kind dance teacher. She was my daughter's teacher from preschool through age 10 and we could not have asked for a more perfect person to be such a big part of Maeve's life for so many years. Miss Lizzy has all the qualities that you'd want in a terrific dance teacher and role model. Her love for dance was contagious. She was kind and supportive, but also helped the girls understand the value of discipline, attention to detail, and always doing their very best. 


When my daughter joined a competitive dance team through the studio, Miss Lizzy guided her through upbeat and beautifully choreographed dance routines that won many awards. She also had a special way of calming the girls' nerves and preparing them for their first experiences performing on stage in front of large crowds. Today, my 11-year-old daughter is extremely passionate about dance, and I attribute much of that to Miss Lizzy.

Miss Lizzy is like the Mary Poppins of dance teachers.  She strikes a perfect balance of kind but firm, instructional yet encouraging, disciplined but fun.  My daughter is older now, but she will always have a special place in her heart for Miss Lizzy.   I can't thank Lizzy enough for instilling a love for dance in my daughter and for helping her gain confidence and a true joy for performing. 


From her daughter Mia R., Age 11:

I'm now in my 8th year of dance. When I was younger, Miss Lizzy was my dance teacher for 4 years, and she will always be my favorite.  She taught me so much and always made it fun.  I will never forget what she did for me and how she made me love being on stage. I love Miss Lizzy so much and I miss her a lot!

Miss LIzzy is a fantastic dance teacher.  She has worked with dancers of all ages and knows how to motivate them.  Lizzy knows how to make dance fun while still instilling a strong work ethic even with younger girls.  She pushes girls to be their very best while keeping her choreography age-appropriate.  Her choreography is wonderful- her dances have won numerous awards at competitions.  We were so sad to see Miss Lizzy move and wish her great success!

Lizzy brought the love of dance to both of my daughters with her caring attitude and fun, but focused dance classes. Lizzy has a way with young kids to teach them the rules of the dance classroom, technique, and the foundations of dance, all while smiling and having fun! Lizzy is also a diamond in the rough with how much she cares for each and every one of her dancers. Her encouragement helped my girls grow and love dance- we are so grateful for what she taught our girls. We love Miss Lizzy and her amazing dance teaching abilities!

Christen S., Chicago

We are so very fortunate to have had Miss Lizzy teach all three of our daughters the foundations of dance.  Her ability to break down the movement, practice with precision, and model strong perseverance, all while having lots of fun is top notch!  She is an absolutely ideal dance teacher for children of all ages.  Her warmth and special care of her youngest dancers is always evident.  We only wish that Miss Lizzy was still teaching dance in Chicago!  How fortunate the San Diego area is now to have such an excellent dance teacher for young children!
