Elizabeth Sheridan

Miss Elizabeth started dancing at three years old with her church dance conservatory. She performed locally and around the country with the Leap of Faith company. With the conservatory, she developed a love of dance, studying ballet, modern, and jazz. At 14 years old, Miss Elizabeth started teaching creative movement and ballet at the conservatory. After graduating from Dekalb School of Arts, Miss Elizabeth went on to Brenau University where she earned a BFA in Dance Performance. In college, she performed in the Brenau Dance Ensemble and the Gainesville Ballet Company. Miss Elizabeth also received a full scholarship to attend the American College Dance Festival at Duke University. Miss Elizabeth now teaches ballet and teen combo classes at 5678 Dance.

What do you get most excited about teaching at 5678Dance?

I get so excited when I see my students’ passion build and their expression reveal their love of dance. I love watch their development over the years.

How long have you been dancing? Is there a memory that stands out?

About 33 years. There are so many memories! Some of my favorite memories are memories of learning new ways of movement for the first time. The first time I took an improv class, my first African class, my first experience with contact/weight sharing in dance, my first yoga experience... all those new ways to move were so liberating.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of dance?

I enjoy hiking, camping, horseback riding, swimming/boating, biking, yoga, being crafty, and trying new things (especially with family and friends).
