Lead Dance Instructor

Ms. Terri began her dance career under the direction of Ms. Judy Baylin when she was four years old.  Her parents and Ms. Judy saw right away that dancing and teaching were to be a large part of her life.  Many summers were spent traveling to dance workshops taking Master Classes from Mallory Graham, Joel Ruminer, Danny & Betty Hoctor, Tommy Alexander, Darrin Contessa and many more talented instructors.  Ms. Terri has taught regular and competition classes.  Her competition teams have won several overall awards.  She is well versed in ballet, tap, jazz and basic tumbling.  Considered by her peers as one of the "foremost" children's teachers in the area, Ms. Terri loves her "kids".

Ms. Terri has also put some of her ballroom experience to use by participating in the Mocksville Woman's Club "Dancing With the Stars" in 2009 by choreographing and performing.  With her "disco dancing" partner, Guy Arcuri, they received the honor of winning the 2010 "Take the Lead" in Winston-Salem.

When not dancing Ms. Terri loves to travel with her husband Greg and son Shane!
