Assistant Manager and Instructor

This will be my fifth year as a Tippi Toes instructor and I have had the best time getting to know all of our sweet families and dancers! I grew up in San Antonio, TX where I started dancing from a young age and became a competitive baton twirler when I was 7 years old! I graduated from the University of Houston with a B.A. in Dance and a minor in Business Administration where I was also the Feature Twirler for the Spirit of Houston. My favorite color is red, I love to read, and my favorite Tippi Toes song is “Together We Are Magic!” ! My goal every class is for each dancer to learn something new and enjoy dancing just as much as I love teaching!

I have been a Tippi Toes instructor since January 2017 and it’s the absolute best job in the world! I began taking ballet classes at age 6, then moved on to ice skating at age 10 and then back to dance my sophomore year of high school. I became Junior Lieutenant after being on the dance team for a year and then captain my senior year. A few of my hobbies are dancing, coloring and spending time with family and friends. I love the color purple! I’m also a receptionist at an emergency center and am currently enrolled at Purdue Global, an online university, to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. It is my dream to open a dance studio! I just love seeing children smile and having fun while learning ballet, jazz and hip hop!

This will be my fifth year working for Tippi Toes and I have loved every moment of it! I danced when I was a little girl and then again in High School where I was the Co-Captain of my Dance Team. I graduated from Houston Baptist University with a degree in Bilingual Education with a focus on grades EC-6th and am now a Dual Language Teacher at Condit Elementary. I love the color pink and my favorite Tippi Toes song is “Tippi Tippi Jam”! My main focus in the classroom is to make sure every dancer is having fun and is learning new skills in every class!

I am so excited to start my second year as a Tippi Toes teacher! I started dancing in college and graduated in August with a BS in Dance and Corporate Communications. I have been working with kids in my church since I was 13 and have been a student teacher twice and worked in a day care for a year. I love working with kids and seeing them grow and develop into their best selves! My favorite Tippi Toes song is “Wiggle Wobble” and I can’t wait to teach everything about dance to these amazing kids!

I am so happy to begin my journey with Tippi Toes this year! I have been dancing since I was 3 years old! I've also been involved in community theatre since I was 8 years old as well as school theatre in middle school and high school. I've danced and performed my whole life by being a part of my school's dance troupe and cheerleading for 6 years. I adore kids, love spending time with them and teaching them! My connection with children started at a young age while caring for my younger siblings, cousins, babysitting for many years, and working in my church's children’s ministry for 5 years! I am currently a student at the University of Houston majoring in Biochemistry in hopes of going to pharmacy school. In my free time I love to paint, bake, explore the outdoors, and spend time with my dog! I truly believe my experience dancing has carried great lessons, characteristics, and skills into all aspects of my life, so I am excited to share all of this with the great children I get the opportunity to teach!

This will be my first year as a part of the Tippi Toes team and I could not be more thrilled! I was born and raised in Morelia, Mich. Mexico, I speak two languages and I adore animals and traveling! I began dancing for fun when I was a young girl, and discovered it was one of my passions during my high school years when I joined the Drill Team and Theatre. I decided I wanted to perform and continue exploring the arts for the rest of my life! I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a BFA in Theatre and Dance. I believe the training and performance skills I acquired during my undergrad education will allow me to give the little ones the best experience while they have fun and discover passions of their own. As a performer and mentor, I am excited to make a positive impact on each and every single one of the children I get to teach. My goal in each class is to encourage inclusion, educate and have fun all through this beautiful form of art!

I am more than excited to join the Tippi Toes team! I recently graduated from the University of Houston with a BS in Psychology. During my time there, I worked as a YDS for a non profit and went on to work at an autism pediatric therapy clinic. Through those experiences, I realized that working with children was something that I was super passionate about. I love the impact that not only you get to make on them but also the impact that they make on you. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, indoor cycling, painting and of course dancing! I can't wait to start my Tippi Toes journey and to be able to create a fun learning environment that promotes growth and confidence.

I am so beyond excited to begin my first year teaching with Tippi Toes that I could just dance; and dance I do! I personally enjoy ecstatic movement, yoga, meditation as well as all things outdoors! I am an outdoor enthusiast and tree hugger! My favorite color is RAINBOW! In fact, I have even gone up in a colorful hot air balloon! I have 12 years of experience in working and volunteering with children in a creative and diverse background. I was personally involved in competitive gymnastics for 10 years in my youth and loved floor! I look forward to seeing everyone's bright faces and can hardly wait in getting our wiggles and wobbles out on the dance floor!

I am so so SO happy I get to be a part of the Tippi Toes team! I started dancing at 5 years old and continued throughout high school. Currently, I am attending the University of Houston pursuing a BA in Sociology and Human Development and Family Studies. I've also been tutoring young children in reading and language arts in HISD for the past 2 years and teaching swim lessons. Not only do I love working with kids, but I also enjoy biking and visiting my family in Thailand. I cannot wait to share my love of dance with these little ones!
Miss Abby
Instructor

I am so thrilled to begin my first year working with Tippi Toes! I was born and raised in Katy, Texas and received ballet and jazz training for 12 years; I also participated in the James E. Taylor High School dance team as both a member and officer. While studying at Liberty University, I joined a contemporary focused dance team on campus which opened the doors to begin teaching ballet, jazz, and contemporary at a studio in Virginia. My love for teaching exploded as I saw how much one class could truly impact a student in so many ways! I graduated from Liberty in 2020 and have since continued in my pursuit to love and guide students of all ages in their love for dance. I cannot wait to begin my journey with Tippi Toes!
