Core A Instructor
Courtney grew up in the Black Hills and dancing has been her passion for as long as she can remember.
As the newest member of our Early Childhood Program teaching team, Courtney’s dance background, combined with her four years of professional classroom experience makes her just the fit for our Core A dancers!
As a former preschool instructor, Courtney is excited to teach some of our youngest dancers while pursuing her degree from Black Hills State University in Special Education.
Courtney worked as a paraprofessional and substitute teacher for Rapid City Area Schools, spanning various assignments serving children of all abilities and ages. We love her kind and patient approach to teaching our Tots, Kinderdancers, and Ballet Swans & Gents, too!
Ms. Courtney is “thrilled to start her journey as a dance teacher at the Academy of Dance Arts, can’t wait to meet all of her new students and grow the love of dance together!”
