My name is Taylor! I started dancing when I was just 2 years old at my local dance studio in Minnesota. After 15 years of dancing at my studio I decided to move away from home and study dance at Arizona State University. I received a BFA in Dance Performance in May of 2019 and I was ready for my next adventure. I finally made the move to LA and now I am pursuing my professional dance career out here in California. ***** COACH CECILIA Hi! My name is Cecilia. I was a successful gymnast for 9 years, reaching level 10. Since ending my own gymnastics career, 7 years ago, I have been coaching recreational and team classes. I graduated from CSUN with a B.A in Deaf Studies. My ultimate goal is to work in the Deaf community. ***** MISS AMANDA Hi! My name is Amanda! Ever since I was a little girl dance and gymnastics has always been an important part of my life. After being in my first professional theater show at the age of 12, my love for the arts grew even BIGGER! I decided to start taking dance classes, and private tumbling lessons at the age of 14. Post high school graduation I went on to dance for the 20x National Champion Louisville Ladybirds. However, I had always dreamt of moving to Los Angeles to further pursue a career in the arts. So, I packed up a u-haul, hooked my subie to the back of it, and drove 3,355 miles from my hometown in Maine to my very first apartment in LA! Aside from teaching I am also working towards my California real estate license. I am so excited to be a part of GroovinKids, and I can’t wait to meet all of the hard-working athletes! ***** COACH SARAH Sarah was born and raised in Massachusetts. She began her journey in dance at age 3. Soon after, she integrated gymnastics training allowing her to develop the strength and athleticism she is best known for today. In September 2016, Sarah moved to New York City to continue her studies as a Jazz & Contemporary Trainee at the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School. Following her graduation in May 2019, she received her BFA in Dance. Sarah plans to continue her studies in fitness and nutrition and will pursue her professional dance career in Los Angeles, CA. Most recently, Sarah began her YouTube channel and plans to use this platform to further educate her followers in healthy living. ***** COACH CARISSA If you’ve ever wondered who the biggest Disneyland fan is, it’s this girl! Her favorite movie is Peter Pan and her favorite ride at the park is The Jungle Cruise. When Coach Carissa isn’t coaching, she is probably watching some Disney movies or hanging out with her dog, Roo. She has been coaching gymnastics/tumbling and competitive cheerleading since 2015. Coach Carissa also has a background as an Emergency Medical Technician. ***** COACH KASSIDY Hi! I’m Kassidy. I started gymnastics when I was 3 years old at my local gym, Novato Gymnastics. I progressed through the levels so that by the time I was 15 years old I was a Level 8 gymnast, competing all over the West coast! Although I had to stop gymnastics due to a back injury, I was able to dive for all of high school and was a varsity cheerleader for two years. I have always loved the feeling of flipping through the air, and I hope to share that joy with the kids that I teach! I have been coaching gymnastics for 6 years, with the majority of my time spent teaching at Novato Gymnastics. I also worked briefly at Bruin Gymnastics Academy at UCLA, however I had to discontinue working there due to COVID. When I am not teaching, I am a full time student at UCLA studying to go to medical school. I took a lot of ceramics classes in high school, and sculpting is still my favorite hobby!
