This is my second year with Unity Dance Academy.  I continue to be amazed with the passion, care and hard work poured into this program.  I love working with our very talented instructors and enjoy watching our dancers' confidence and skills improve throughout the season.  I look forward to the 2018-2019 dance season and all the fun memories we will make!

This will be my third year working at UDA. I have been a dance assistant for 2 years and this will be my first year as an instructor. Throughout my childhood, I enjoyed dancing at many studios. I continued my dancing career competing throughout high school. My favorite styles of dance are Hip-Hop, Jazz and Lyrical but, I am open to anything. I currently attend UW Oshkosh starting my degree in Kinesiology. A fun fact about me is that I am a service member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard! I am very excited to watch my students grow this year!

Liz Johnson

This is my first year teaching at UDA. I started taking classes at the age of 3 and have even competed nationally in Star Power. My favorite style of dance is tap because I just love that you can learn to make so many different noises with just your feet. I also teach adult tap class which has a variety of different levels within the class. In addition to dance, I also love baking and spending time in nature. Thank you to my husband and daughter for your support while I follow my dream job! A fun fact about me is I love animals, and have two dogs and a cat.
