We are excited to introduce Caitlin Veard as our new Intro to Ballet/Tap instructor. Caitlin has been dancing for well over a decade. She has had, and continues training in multiple styles of dance including Ballet, pointe, jazz, hip-hop, modern, and musical theater.

Ms. Veard is currently involved in the Early Childhood Education program at Lorain County Community College. She also teaches at MovementWorks Dance and Fitness in Amherst, OH.
Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.
