Miss.

What started as a small dance studio has now blossomed into a multi-enrichment programming studio, partnered with a full-day Kindergarten, Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool in Lakeview. Kinder’s dance programs are now offered in a multitude of locations around the city, including a variety of pre-school partnerships. Miss Liz has a background in a variety of dance ranging from Ballet- Latin and she can speak beginner French and Spanish!
