Courtney began dance in St. Charles, Missouri at 5 and loved the stage from her first recital. In high school she performed as a principe dancer with The Dance Company of St. Charles. In the summers she nurtured her love for musical theater by performing in various musicals with Studio J productions and The St. Louis Muny Theater. After high school Courtney attended Oklahoma City University where she received her BFA in Dance Performance. She has danced professionally with Opryland Productions, Celebrity Cruise Lines, in Branson Missouri and New York. Her dance life brought her to Dallas when she made the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders where she was a part of the elite Show Group and was blessed with the opportunity to sing the National Anthem at several games and dance and sing for our troops on numerous USO tours. She has performed and worked with artists such as Creed, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes and more. Like all dance teachers, she is the mom to three boys. Courtney and her husband Dustin have made their home in Lake Highlands. When she isn’t teaching dance and getting her “girl fix” she models and does commercial and film work.
