Kinderdance with Joanna Collins

Grades PreK-1

My name is Joanna and I am a California gal that loves the Arts, nature and teaching children! As a young girl, I loved dancing and never stopped moving. I took many Dance classes throughout my childhood and they have been my fondest memories. Dance has always continued to play an integral and important part of my life, but it wasn’t until college that I knew I wanted to dance forever. I studied Child Psychology and Dance at Loyola Marymount University. Upon graduation, I performed for many years as a professional Dancer in theatre, film, commercials and television. I developed a simultaneous love of teaching and working with children and went on to receive a MA in Education and Teaching Credential from Pepperdine University. My entrepreneurial spirit brought me to Kinderdance and I am eager to bring more dance and movement into the lives of children everywhere. I am very excited to be here and look forward to dancing with you!
