Teacher / Artistic Director

 

Kathleen Russell

Kathleen received her 12 years of formal dance training with Marcia Dale Weary in Carlisle, PA. at CPYB where she also was a dance instructor. She furthered her training through other professional teachers in New York City and Philadelphia. She guest choreographs for local musicals and church events and has taught dance to special needs students through CPARC.

 With her 64 years of total dedication to her profession, her background of excellent training and operating her own dance studio since 1969, Kathleen offers to her students the opportunity to study dance of a superior quality. She teaches with love, patience, and kindness to bring out the best in all who walk through her doors to the "Wonderful World Of Dance!"

Hello, my name is Tiffany Doporcyk.  I trained in ballet, tap, lyrical, and hip hop for 16 years.  The names of the studios that I trained with were: Walnut Bottom School of Dance, owned by my Mother, Tanya Doporcyk, from ages three to 13; Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet for six years; and another five years at a local dance program known as REACH.

I have also worked at my mother's studio for seven years, where I taught tap, ballet, hip hop, and lyrical.  I continue to dance most days of the week for fun, health, and peace of mind.
