Crystal Alley, Director

  • 30+ Years Dance Experience

  • Collegiate Level Training

  • Professional Teaching Experience

I began to discover my love of dance at the age of 4 years old. My teaching experience began in high school and I continued to gain teaching experience during college, while pursuing a minor in Dance and dancing on the college Dance Team. I absolutely love having the opportunity to offer dance instruction to the Springfield community. I enjoy sharing my love of dance with children by placing an emphasis on proper form and technique while remembering that the best way to learn is by having FUN. I look forward to working with you and your children and I am excited to offer dance not only as an activity, but also as an avenue to improved self-esteem, discipline, coordination, structure, and an inviting atmosphere for your child!

My dance experience began when I was just 2 years old. Over the years, my love of dance grew stronger and I became more involved once I began competition dance at age 8. I continued to dance competitively as well as later joining my high school dance team until senior year of high school. Following graduation, I danced on the Nebraska Wesleyan Gold Rush Dance Team for 2 years, becoming conference champion in both Hip-Hop and Jazz.

My teaching experience began in high school, where I assisted Crystal with some classes at 5678. I then began as a staff member in 2020 and have since been dedicated to teaching my students proper technique and discipline while creating a welcoming and fun environment.
