Instructor/Dance Team Advisor
“I teach because it is my small way of changing the world.” Sydney is an educator, creative artist, and animal lover. Beginning her dance training in a small studio in Deptford, NJ, she has since grown to pursue a dance career in high school and college. Sydney will obtain her B.A. in Dance Education from Montclair State University in December 2017 after having the honor to study with a wide range of teachers and perform the works of Charles Weidman, Frederick Earl Mosley, and Anna Sokolow, among others. In 2013, Sydney had the opportunity to study and perform in Livorno, Italy. Despite her love for performing, Sydney finds her true sense of purpose to be with teaching. For her, there is no greater reward than seeing a student proud of their work. In her past 5 years of teaching, Sydney has developed a philosophy of education that is encouraging of individuality, creativity, self-awareness, teamwork, diligence, and respect. Sydney is proud to have made the progression from Intern to Teacher.
