Teacher, Twinsburg Studio

Kaitlyn started dancing when she was 4 years old at Lauray’s Studio of Dance in Bedford, Ohio. She started with Tap and Ballet and took a break for a few years before coming back to study Jazz and Hip-Hop.

Throughout high school and afterwards, she took every opportunity to get involved with dancing—including: Cheerleading, Dance Team, Flagline, Musicals, Greek dancing, Country-Line Dancing, Zumba fitness, and Salsa.

A few years after graduation, she travelled to South Africa & Madagascar, where she spent a year volunteering on Mercyships. Even though her mission was not dance-related she still found a way to stay active in dance by attending a local dance class and taking advantage of the many cultures she was surrounded with on the ship.

When she returned in 2016, she began training with Anderson while attending Kent State University. This year she is planning to participate in various competitions for both Ballroom & Salsa Dancing in order to take her passion to the next level.

Dance has always been a part of her life and been an area where she feels most alive. She cannot wait to share her love of dance with you!


Teacher and Front Desk specialist, Twinsburg Studio

Maggie began her athletic career in gymnastics, where she trained and competed for twelve years before discovering a natural tendency toward dance through drama camps and high school musicals. In college, Maggie was heavily involved in the dance community, quickly becoming a leader and choreographing her own numbers for many of the school’s dance productions and also choreographing one of the college’s spring musicals. There she discovered Ballroom and Swing dancing and actively worked as an executive of the college Ballroom Club to plan dances and events for the student body. While in school, Maggie danced a variety of styles of dance, but Ballroom always held a special spot above the rest. She’s thrilled to be at Starz as she continues to hone her dance skills and share her passion for dancing with you.
