Featured Teacher – Miss Sylvia

featured teacherEach month, we recognize and highlight one of our many incredible teachers. This month, we’ll meet Miss Sylvia who teaches at Tippi Toes® St. Louis.

Tell us a little about your dance history. Did you dance before? Did you teach before?

I started dancing at the age of 4 at my church; however, I did not begin learning technique until I attended college. There I studied and got my BFA in dance. I have no real teaching prior to Tippi Toes®.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at Tippi Toes®?

I think Tippi Toes® overall is a great support team. They encourage you to always be the best you! I enjoy the flexibility and opportunity to explore and grow as a teacher, dancer, and artist. Also, there is so much joy in being able to positively shape a child’s life through movement.

Tell us about a favorite Tippi Toes® moment from class.

It’s always heartwarming when a student draws me a picture or picks out a little flower for me and is so excited to give it me. Or even just them being eager to tell me about their day and dance with me.

What do you like to do for fun when not dancing with sweet kiddos

I thoroughly enjoy sleeping, eating, or shopping! LOL!
