“Miss Andy” grew up in Casper, Wyoming. She graduated from Natrona County High School and Casper College. Andrea was very fortunate to have danced under the instruction of Shirley Lewis for many years focusing on Ballet. During her childhood, Andrea also participated in some gymnastics, Jazz dance, and Cheerleading. In High school, she was a member of the Gymnastics team. Andrea is married and has two daughters. Chances are you will see “Miss Andy” in the studio even when she isn’t teaching; she works at the Rising Star Welcome Desk, her oldest daughter Madi is also a dance teacher; her youngest daughter Ryann is a dancer and demonstrator. Knowing the amazing benefits dance has to offer children she couldn’t resist putting her own daughters in it, and that is when a spark began to form once again and her passion for dance was alive. Andrea has taught both Dance and Tumbling with age ranges from 18 months to 6 years old.
