Ava is a recent graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and has held a love for dance since the age of two, where she grew to deeply enjoy hip hop performance from age four. She spent her high school career on the Varsity Drill Team, and enjoyed the camaraderie and the opportunity to choreograph and perform for large audiences. Ava also competed in IHSA competitions annually, and has a deep appreciation for the drive and commitment that competitive dance requires. After stepping away from dance during college, Ava is excited to return to the sport, this time as a teacher. She is hoping to instill confidence in her students and help them build the same passion for dance that she had in childhood. She can't wait to see you on the dance floor!
