Miss Vanessa

Owner & Instructor 

Miss Vanessa began dancing at age 3 and literally has never stopped! She studied ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, hip- hop, pointe in addition to high school dance team high kick, pom and competitive dancing at the age of 10. She began instructing at the age of 12 when her teacher & studio owner said “she knew she had something special in her”. From there she continued to teach recreational classes in styles of parent & me, ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical & competitive dance. In 2009 she created the Performance Teams at her home studio as she realized the great need for kids to have an opportunity to not only compete, but perform for the community and surrounding areas. The first  year, she had 17 members to just one year later she grew to over 35 members. She helped these dancers take their dance to the next level with performing at local venues, nursing homes and any other shows they were called on, but these dancers also competed locally. During this time miss Vanessa also earned her bachelors in social work, and became a licensed social worker working in short & long term care. On the side Miss Vanessa also coached her old high school team in the state of Minnesota and another local high school. Miss Vanessa decided her biggest passion was in studio dance & proceeded to follow that calling teaching 3 days a week. Live & Love Dance Productions idea was created based on the interest of families reaching out to her who wanted to still work with her even through distance. Miss Vanessa offered competitive lessons in Minnesota traveling back and forth until an opportunity arose to teach on the military base, she was able to run her program for a year at Fe Warren. Meanwhile Vanessa also taught at a very reputable and well known studio in Wyoming and had decided working for this local studio which opened her to a new world of dance & family, she focussed much of her time & energy into the recreational & competitive program- to teaching dance 5 days a week! She remained to teach for the local studio for 4 years until she  relocated to California. Miss Vanessa was given the opportunity to teach for the the alley project which then allowed her program to become recreated even better then before. Miss Vanessa is so passionate about her students to help foster a love of dance, and grow close relationships that they really feel part of her extended family. Miss Vanessa was blessed with a happy very healthy & energetic child , Emmett in 2017, and she knew she wanted him to have the same opportunity of dance because she knew how it has changed her life. Miss Vanessa is always thinking about dance and how she can offer more to her students, she is dedicated and hard working and truly wants the best for all her students. Her favorite styles of dance are basically all, but jazz & hip hop let her feel extra fierce and fun! Miss Vanessa is certified in PBT (Progressive Ballet Technique) & Acrobatics Arts, she believes in continuing to gain knowledge to bring to her students to help them achieve their goals. When she’s not dancing she loves all things Disney especially little mermaid, hanging out with her dog, usually doing some art project with her son, reading, & can’t forget she loves sparkles!
