Miss Lindsey has been dancing for 33 years, and teaching for 20 of them. Lindsey started training at a young age with former Radio City Music Hall Rockette Cheryl Andersen, and then trained with Keith Banks, instructor to So You Think You Can Dance Season 1 winner Nick Lazzarini, as a teenager. Growing up, Lindsey starred in numerous productions of California's Valley Dance Theatre's Nutcracker and participated in many California statewide and nationwide competitions, including Kids Artistic Revue, Showstopper, and Starpower.
Lindsey continued her dance journey in North Carolina at UNC-Chapel Hill, where she served as President, choreographer, and teacher for Blank Canvas, the University's largest student dance group. After graduation, Lindsey worked for the Carolina Ballet and was invited to dance full-time at Walt Disney World before returning to California to direct, choreograph, and teach at a popular, multi-city dance academy in the San Francisco Bay Area. While there, she planned, coordinated, and successfully executed more than 100 recitals and performances. After returning to North Carolina, she served as a committee member for UNC-Chapel Hill's Endowment for the Arts and danced with members of the acclaimed Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.
Miss Lindsey lives in West Cary with her husband, Harry, her daughter, Mikayla, her son, Miles, and their lab-beagle mix, Otis. While the thrill of being onstage is indescribable, Lindsey's truest passion is sharing the joy of dance with her students and helping them fulfill their potential both inside and outside of the dance studio. Nothing can compare to the twinkle in a student's eye and the smile across their face when they learn and perfect a new dance skill. Lindsey is ecstatic to be fulfilling her lifelong dream of bringing her love of dance to the Cary community while also contributing to the dance industry worldwide through mentoring and serving in influential positions such as Product Council for Men's Dancewear.
