Miss Michelle began her dance training at age 3 at her parents dance studio, Academy of Ballet Arts, and has been teaching for over 20 years. Michelle holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Nova University, and an Associate of Arts Degree in Dance Education from The Ohio State University.

Michelle also appeared in two NFL Superbowls, both as a dancer and a choreographer, during which time she toured the East Coast as a Superbowl Staff member. Michelle's greatest achievement in dance has been opening Dance Theatre, where tens of 1000's of children have learned to love dance as much as she does. As the director of Dance Theatre for the past 19 years, Michelle has led her students to such notable accomplishments as the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, the FedEx Orange Bowl in Miami, and Superbowl XLI. Michelle also continues to spread her love of dance beyond South Florida, most recently to the Lexington, KY area with Dance Theatre at Hamburg, and later this year, to Atlanta, GA, with the grand opening of Dance Theatre at Sandy Springs. It's no surprise that Michelle was recently added to the Cambridge Directory of Successful Women in Business.
