I have written blogs about this topic in the past - how proud I am of my staff and what effort it requires to find the right fit. My instructors and front desk staff are intelligent, sincere, hard working and I consider them a part of my family. I am excited to announce some familiar faces that will be returning to Dancers Shape! Please welcome back Toussaint, Lisa and Alison.
Familiar Faces Returning to the DS Family
Toussaint was my very first instructor hired and helped me open the studio back in 2010. She left to attend physical therapy school in Dallas and has now graduated from Texas Women’s and is preparing for her boards. We are thrilled to have her expertise back at the studio.
Lisa was my second instructor hired after opening. She has been in and out of Dancers Shape with stints in London, India and New York City for her Masters in Dance, a yoga certification and to pursue a professional dance career. Welcome back Lisa.
Alison started at the front desk and proved she could handle the work it took to be an instructor. She grew up in Austin and wanted a change of scenery and decided to take a shot in the big city of Los Angeles. She is enjoying pursuing a professional dance career in LA but has returned for the summer to spend time with her family and will be at the DS front desk.
I am so happy to have these talented ladies back at the studio (either permanently or temporary) so please help me welcome them home!
