Bethany started learning how to dance at the age of six at TJ Dance Studio! She began with ballet, jazz, and tap to then continued onto hip hop and lyrical.
TJ Dance created the foundation of her love for dance, as she didn’t miss a single year all the way to performing a senior dance routine at 18 years old at the annual show.
In addition to TJ Dance, Bethany also took dance classes at Kirkland Dance Center, performed on the Eastside Moving Company while attending Bellevue College, and continued to expand in learning different styles of dance.
Bethany began teaching dance her senior year of high school at TJ Dance and soon later became a youth and adult dance teacher at Kirkland Dance Center. She loves teaching both children and adult classes as both bring great fun and diversity. She was raised by TJ Dance’s motto that any one can dance, and stands by that statement! She believes dancing brings joy and loves to pass that on to all ages through her teaching. Bethany taught dance for 6 years and then took a 2 year break to become a student of dance again. She is spinning and leaping in excitement to be joining the TJ Dance Studio for the 2017-2018 dance year and for many, many years
While Bethany is not dancing she spends her time being a new mom of her baby boy, taking her energetic dogs on adventures, and relaxing with her friends and family.
