In 2015 she received the Reverence Scholarship award.  Having completed her Teacher Certification, Lydia is now part of our dynamic staff here at Dance 2 Studio.  As a teacher, Miss Lydia's goal is to ensure that student's will not only learn dance effectively, but will equally experience the joy in dancing too.

At age 8 she started assisting in classes and in 2018 received the Reverence Scholarship Award. Autumn is an accomplished dancer in several genres to include Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap, Musical Theater, and Lyrical with Ballet most notably being her favorite. Having completed her teacher certification in 2020 Autumn is ready to "step" in as substitute when needed while she continues her own dance studies too. 


Callie Stadheim - Instructor

At age six, Callie began her dance journey at our studio and advanced quickly – being promoted into our top level ballet class at a considerably younger age than most.  Though ballet is her first love, Callie enjoys other dance genres and is an accomplished Tap dancer with experience in Musical Theater as well. Having recently completed her Teaching Certification and joining our staff, Callie especially looks forward to sharing her knowledge and working with our younger students – especially if she gets to be their first ever dance teacher!


Cassie Waltner - Instructor

Cassie came to our studio as a shy and timid seven year old – now transformed into a confident, strong dancer. With experience in Ballet and Lyrical, along with having recently passed her Teacher Certification, Miss Cassie is poised and at the ready to share her knowledge with students. As a teacher, one of her many goals is to help students have the same experience she did, of discovering the confidence, joy, and strength within themselves that dance helps bring to light.


Madalyn Cain - Instructor

Dancing since age four, Madalyn came to us from another studio, seeking a better match for her aspirations and work ethic. Always putting herself to the test, she has worked up through the ranks in her study of Ballet, Lyrical, and Hip Hop. Now having passed her Teacher Certification, Madalyn is happy to become part of the staff – ready to challenge herself as well as her students while nurturing them in their own dance journeys.
