I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Henriksson and I will be your Child's Dance Instructor.  I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from the University of Arizona as well as my Masters in Education from the University of Phoenix. 

My dance training started at the age of three.  From there, my passion grew and I continued to pursue a career in dance.  I have had extensive training and performance experience in all forms of dance, i.e., ballet, tap, modern, and jazz.

I look forward to sharing my passion with your child.  I know that they will find my class to be fun, challenging, and self rewarding.
