Meet Your Kid's Tap Dance Teacher
Olivia Fink, Teacher,

"Hi all! My name is Olivia, and I am so excited to be joining the American Dance Institute in the Fall.
I am originally from Denver, Colorado and moved to Seattle to pursue my undergraduate degree. I graduated this last Spring, and now I'm looking forward to this new adventure of teaching. I have 15 years of dance experience within the styles of ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and hip hop. My two favorite styles of dance are jazz and tap. Other than dancing, I enjoy rock climbing, reading, and hanging out with friends and family."

The teacher is the determinant factor...
"Just as in the best public and private schools, the quality of the teacher in a class room and dance studio determines the quality of the student's class experience. American Dance Institute's teachers are the best. I know because I work very hard to find, mentor and retain them."
Elizabeth Chayer - Founder, Director, The American Dance Institute
