We are excited to announce the return of Guest Teacher Josh Manculich to the studio! Winner of the Princess Grace Award for choreography, he is a graduate of Point Park University and has a Masters of Fine Arts in Dance from Ohio State.  Now an Assistant Director at Sam Houston State University, he danced for five seasons with Thodos Dance Chicago, has performed with Chicago Repertory Ballet and is a founding performance member of Pursuit Productions.  The best part is, even with all of his awards and experience he is a friendly, approachable teacher with a great, positive outlook who is passionate about sharing his love of dance!  He is a favorite of our students that have worked with him.

It is an honor to have a guest instructor of his caliber teach at our studio.  Any time students can learn from a guest teacher, they receive the benefit of additional teaching and choreographic styles.  Add that together with their vast experience, the fact they are coming to you, no travel or hotel expenses and it makes this opportunity amazing!
