It gives me great pleasure to make a difference in the younger generation. I have been working at the dance school for over 15 years and my wonderful staff and I would like Miss Andrea's Dance Stars to be a fun, family and community oriented place to dance. I was a Class I competitive gymnast in my youth. I have taken many forms of dance during this time. I am safety certified, first aid certified, and preschool teaching certified.
