KEEP DANCE IN YOUR LIFE
Teacher Bio: Colleen Teska
The Dance Factory is my home. I made life-long friends, learned many life lessons, and discovered my love for dance as a student at The Dance Factory. I cannot express how happy I am to return to the studio I grew up in as a teacher. Tina always insisted her students be able "to do anything". Meaning: dance any style, be a good student, be a dedicated dancer, be a good person... to name a few. This skill of adaptability and focus has served me well in college and my professional life.
People ask me why I dance, quite simply, dancing makes my heart happy. There is a joy I feel deep inside when I dance. I believe everyone, no matter what age, needs a little more joy in their heart. By teaching dance, especially at the Dance Factory, I hope to pass on this joy as well as some very important life skills to the dancers, I teach.

Teacher Bio: Brittany Reuss
I grew up dancing at the Dance Factory where I was taught not only proper technique and discipline, but so much more. It was the place where I found my love for the art of dance, where I shared many memories with close friends, and where my teachers ultimately gave me the courage to pursue dance as a career. I believe that the Dance Factory trains well-rounded students and gives them the proper foundation to excel in dance. Teaching dance is fun, challenging and an overall learning experience for me, and I am absolutely honored to return to the Dance Factory as a member of the staff.
