Written by Joe Naftal on November 6, 2020

Today we are featuring Miss Stacey in our latest edition of “Getting to Know You”!  The “Getting to Know You” series helps us get to know each of the Dance Connection teachers and staff we get to see at the studio every week and learn a little bit more about them.

Why do you love teaching dance? I Love teaching dance because of the children and families.

What is an accomplishment you’re most proud of? I have many former students that have chosen dance as their career, and many former students that bring their children to my class.

Who is your hero and why? My Dad, he taught me how to live, thrive and appreciate everything.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? Surf and turf!

What do you do in your spare time? Spare time? I love spending Sundays with my husband and dogs.

What’s your favorite vacation spot? My favorite vacation is Walt Disney World.
