Wednesday, February 18th:  SDA will be opened and we will have classes today!

SDA is so proud to welcome Kaci McCall to our staff. Kaci McCall has been dancing since the age of 6, but really fell in love with the art when she attended her first dance convention at age 12. Ever since then, dance has been her entire world. She competed with 2 local studios from ages 12-17 and felt at home on the stage. During her high school years, she had the privilege of receiving the HC dancer scholarship for Hollywood Connection dance convention where she had the chance to travel and assist their instructors. In this time she trained under major talents such as: Brooke Lipton, Robert Schultz, Chonique Sneed & Lisette Bustamante, Katie Miller, Kimberly Lyon, & Jason Kalish. Near the end of her senior year, she was signed with DDO Artist Agency and moved out to Los Angeles following graduation. While in California, she performed in the Carnival showcase for Robert Schultz. It didn't take her long to realize that her heart was really in teaching. She then moved back home to pursue a career as a dance instructor. Currently, Kaci is the Hip Hop Company director and Jazz Company Co-Director for Upstate Carolina Dance Center. She considers having the ability to share her passion with generations to come a blessing, and her heart couldn't be more full.

Her ultimate goal is to impart that passion, inspire dancers to work hard, grow as people and dancers. We are very excited to have Lara at SDA!
