Miss Kerri Sullivan

Owner/Director

Kerri Sullivan has 20 plus years of teaching experience.  She's been in love with dance since she appeared on stage for the first time at the age of 3.  Miss Kerri has trained in tap, ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance.  In her younger years, Kerri danced in California, winning regional and state competitions.  At the age of 14, she was the dance assistant for adult workshops at U.C. Irvine.  In high school, she was the lead dancer and assistant choreographer in many musicals.  Kerri received multiple dance scholarships, including those from Penrod Arts and Dance Kaleidoscope and was accepted into IU's Contemporary Dance Touring Company as a freshman in college.  When Kerri isn't teaching dance, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Ken and two daughters, Kaiti(23) and Kylie(18).  

This is Kerri's 17th year teaching dance to children and adults.  Owning a dance studio is something that she has always dreamed of doing and is excited to finally make her dream come true.
