Hi everyone! I'm Miss Kylie and I will be teaching lots of various classes this year! I spend the majority of my time running the studio, preparing curriculum, and bettering myself as an educator through constant research and ballet training.
I began dancing at the age of three, continuing to train in almost every style throughout the years. I cheered for eight years and am also former member and officer of my high school drill team, the Paradise Emeralds.
After graduation, I moved to Denton to attend the University of North Texas. I spent two years as a North Texas dancer and gained so much more dance experience!
In 2010, I became an Ice Angels dancer for the Allen Americans; a minor league hockey team. In 2011, I was blessed to be chosen as a highly-coveted Dallas Stars Ice Girl, and continued a second year as a Veteran, ice skater, and dance captain. It was an experience I will never forget!
Aside from everything else, I have taught and choreographed for various local cheer and dance teams over the past 14 years. I directed the Paradise drill teams for a total of six years and spent two years as the Paradise Varsity Cheer coach. I also have judged numerous dance, cheer, and drill team tryouts over the years.
I would say I have an easy-going style that incorporates passion and experience to make me a great teacher of all ages. I believe I am intuitive in the classroom, and do my best to find ways to reach every student in the classroom and make them feel special...because they are!
Hey guys! I'm Miss Chris and I'm entering my sixth year as a dance instructor at MTDC. I will be teaching our Sparklers teams and a F.A.S.T. class. I also have my Personal Training Certification through ACE.
I began dancing at the age of five. I have trained in ballet, tap, jazz, clogging, hip-hop, and drill team. I danced with King & Roberts Dance Studio in Keller for many years and competed in numerous competitions all over Texas. While with King and Roberts, I danced with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders during their Christmas and Halloween halftime shows for seven years...unforgettable experiences!
In high school, I became the Lieutenant of my school's drill team and later became Captain of the Emeralds drill team for two years. In 2007, I was chosen as Ms. Showtime International and part of the Elite Kick Club by Showtime Intl. Inc.
After graduation, I moved to Springtown where I became the Co-Director for the SMS Dance Team and continued in that position for five years. I choreographed numerous football and competition routines each year, winning multiple trophies for all dances and outstanding choreography.
What I want dancers and parents to know about my teaching style is that I like to have a more structured class and strive to push and challenge my students. I try to motivate the team as a whole and I want each student to feel like they are a part of something bigger than just themselves, but also that the team would be incomplete without their contribution. I hope that doesn't sound cheesy, but it's the truth!
Hi there! I’m Miss Sara and I’m excited to teach the students of MTDC!
My dance journey began at the age of six with Karen Smith at Wise Ballet Academy. I spent 12 years training in classical ballet, as well as tap, pilates and performing in yearly productions. I especially enjoyed assisting younger classes.
I was also a former member and officer of the Paradise Emeralds drill team under the direction of Miss Kylie.
I’m honored to be able to continue my love of dance and teaching, and love getting to know all of my students.
Hi I’m Miss Christy! I bring 16 years of dance experience to Miss Twister. My passion for dance began at Wise Ballet Academy where I studied classical ballet, tap, and pilates for 13 years.
While attending the University of Texas at Dallas, I fell in love with other forms of movement like contemporary, modern, improvisational movement, jazz and latin dance.
As a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Performance (with a concentration in Dance), I’m very excited to join the studio in sharing my joy of movement into other dancers in a positive and accepting environment.
Other Awesome Staff Members
Hi, I'm Sommer! I teach Hatha Yoga and Mindful Movement & Meditation. I have spent most of last year training at Indra's Grace Yoga and Meditation Studio in Weatherford and I have officially completed my RYT 200 Teacher Training! (275 hours, to be exact.)
My daughter Ellery has danced at MTDC for three years now. She loves ballet and will be a Pink Sparkler this year.
I look forward to bringing my love of yoga, massage therapy, essential oils and overall health and wellness to MTDC.
Hello everyone! I create monthly newsletters, send emails, and keep up with everyone's studio accounts. I have my Business and Finance Degree with an emphasis in Accounting, and I am one of those strange people that actually enjoy dealing with numbers and accounts.
My husband is a high school football and basketball coach. We have a son and two daughters who keep us extremely busy with basketball, baseball, dance and cheer.
As for my dance background, I started dancing when I was three and danced on a competitive team in Colorado through my senior year of high school. However, I am pretty sure I gave all of my dancing skills to my daughter when she was born because I now have none...ha! My oldest daughter, Tianna, is a Blue Sparkler and has danced with MTDC since she was six years old. We love everything about Miss Twister Dance and I am looking forward to another great year!
