Created with Sketch.

Genie is from Los Angeles and has been dancing since she was 3. Her dance education stems from her time at Gotta Dance Studio, Burbank Media City Ballet, Millenium Dance Complex, The EDGE Performing Arts Center, Pineapple Dance Studio, and Ballett Akademie Graz. In her teen years, Genie attended the Joffrey Ballet Contemporary and Jazz spring workshop in New York. And although she didn’t end up enrolling, she was offered a spot in the Joffrey Ballet School on partial scholarship. Furthermore, Genie has danced on several teams. These include contemporary with Icarus Contemporary, hip hop with NSU Modern, and commercial/showdance with Dance Production Graz. Her favorite dance styles are jazz, contemporary, and ballet.  

When it comes to dance education and teaching, Genie believes that a strong foundation is core to growth and development for each dancer. Regardless of the dance style, every step, movement, and skill has to be grounded in the basics. Then from the basics, the student dancers are able to improve and build upon their abilities in a safe and sustainable way. Genie sees the dance class and the studio as a welcoming space for dancers of all levels to learn. Students shouldn’t be afraid to fail in class because class is exactly where mistakes and failures are meant happen. 


Improve your choreography pick-up skills, stage performance confidence, style and texture development, and overall contemporary technique with this class. We’ll start each class with a quick warm-up and then jump right into choreography. Every 2 or 3 weeks, there will be new choreography to learn so that you can explore different contemporary genres and ultimately discover your own personal style! Prior experience in contemporary or other dance styles is highly recommended but not required.
