About Mt. Pleasant School of Performing Arts



Mt. Pleasant School of Performing Arts is our dance school where we offer classes in Classical Ballet which is the training ground for the Company.  I opened my doors 20 years ago on South Morgan’s Point Road, near Charleston National.  I have relocated three times; recently to the Lighthouse Campus where we have created a “black box” theatre to use for smaller productions which is also where our studio is located. 


I have come to realize that my job as a dance educator is so much more than just teaching & directing steps.  I have watched so many young ladies grow as strong woman with confidence and grace that I am certain I have played a part in their lives.  I try to set an example in what I do and teach. I hope that all the lessons that are learned are so much more than ballet lessons, but about life independence.  I look at the shy girl that walks into my class and a few years later, I admire the strong, confident woman she has become and for this I’am honored to have added to that process.  I believe I nurture the growth of their wings to soar in life. I also feel that the memories they acquire are more than money or tuition can buy. 

Thank you for trusting me with your precious child!
