Liz began dancing when she was five years old at Colette's Dance School in Salt Lake City, Utah. Growing up, she trained in ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, and lyrical. She began dancing competitively at the age of 12. Liz loves to perform and compete. She was a member of the Regional and National Champion Granger High School Drill Team and Dance Company. After high school, Liz attended Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. She was awarded a dance scholarship and trained under the direction of Toni Bosch in ballet and modern. She was also a member of the Snow College Dance Team and Team Vice President. Liz met her husband in college and soon moved to Wisconsin where she continued her dance career, now as a teacher. Liz has taught at and choreographed for numerous studios in Wisconsin and Utah, and is very excited to teach at the School of Classical Ballet. She has also choreographed solos and judged auditions for High School drill teams. Recently Liz had the opportunity to choreograph for West High School’s performance of High School Musical! Liz and her husband Rich reside in Billings with their four very busy children.
