I love being a part of a school where students can not only dance, but also learn the technique and character of being a great dancer and teacher.



Helping dancers push past their limits allows them to trust that their bodies will carry them through anything they want to accomplish.



I feel truly blessed to have the gift of working with students both inside and out of the classroom; gaining the trust of each family we serve.



The exceptional student shows their love of dance through hard work and discipline. I strive to teach that mindset in my classes.

Isabella Kessinger


The best kind of dance teacher pays attention to the uniqueness of each individual child, adjusting lessons to fit the needs of all learners.



You don’t need to be super fast or explosive to look good as a performer. Simplicity in movement can speak volumes.

Harmony Rea


I believe it is important to implement not only movement, but also explore dancers’ artistic expression in every class I teach.



I believe in teaching a passion for expression through the artistry found in dance.





My goal is to develop a dancer-specific curriculum that makes use of each student’s strengths and weaknesses to promote growth, as well as give the student a diversified learning environment.



I see teaching dance & expression as the best form of learning. I strive to learn from our faculty and students, just as much as I pass on.



 I get the joy of being a dance student, dance parent, and dance teacher at Nebraska Ballet Theatre and School. I aim to create a fun and safe space where dancers can learn and grow.



 I believe dance classes should provide a fun, creative, and collaborative environment and I’m so happy to have found that atmosphere at NBT&S.



 My goal is to share my passion for dance with youth of all ages. I want to help students express themselves and their feelings through the power of art and movement.



 I want my students to know that pursuing a future in the arts is attainable. I strive to challenge my students to work hard and make big choices.
