Tippi Toes® Featured Teacher – Sloane Sivewright

Each month, we recognize and highlight one of our many incredible dance teachers. This month, we’ll meet Sloane Sivewright who teaches at Tippi Toes® Oklahoma City/Edmond. Sloan was just awarded the 2016 National Tippi Toes® Teacher of the Year.


Hi Sloane!

Thank you for taking the time to talk to us to tell us a little about your experience as a dance teacher at Tippi Toes®.

Tell us a little about your dance history. Did you dance before working at Tippi Toes®? Have you taught before?

I started dancing at Texas Ballet Theater in Fort Worth, TX when I was 7 and continued dancing through high school. 

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

What I enjoy most about teaching at Tippi Toes® is the environment Tippi Toes® strives to create. We make dancing fun for everyone and really commit to a happy atmosphere.

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

My favorite Tippi Toes® moments include watching my students progress throughout the year and being able to see their own reaction when they know they have accomplished a new dance move, dance, etc. 

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

When I’m not teaching and dancing with the kiddos, I am hanging out with my family and watching movies!
