Susan fostered her love of dance at Deena Shroyer’s School of Dance in Leavenworth Kansas until the age of 16 when she decided to pursue dance at a professional level and began training at Kansas School of Classical Ballet under the instruction of Juan Pablo Trujillo. She attended many summer intensives including Webster University, Oklahoma City Ballet, and Fort Wayne Ballet. Susan began her career at Fort Wayne Ballet where she danced for two seasons. While in Fort Wayne she got to perform in productions such as Cinderella, Phantom of the Opera, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and of course the cherished tradition of The Nutcracker. Susan is an ABT® Certified Teacher, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum. Currently Ms. Susan is dancing professionally for Vidadance company in Kansas City Missouri. Susan is happy to be back in the Kansas City area sharing her love of dance with this community!
