Hey! My name is Caitlyn Clark and I am so excited to be the full time dance teacher here at Ellington. This is my first year teaching at the Eagle's nest and I am loving it! I have been dancing since I was three years old and not long after, I joined a competitive dance company in North Carolina. Since then, I have attended numerous dance intensives like: Ballet Magnificat! in Mississippi and Disney Performing Arts at Disney World. I've also worked with several renowned dancers and choreographers such as: Nick Lazzarini- Season 1 winner of 'So You Think You Can Dance' and Dee Caspary- Former choreographer for Justin Timberlake and current artistic director for Nvitational dance festival in Los Angeles. I graduated from Radford University in Virginia with a Bachelors of Science in Dance Education. My training and experience in dance styles include: Ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, hip-hop, latin, ballroom, clogging, musical theatre, and tumbling. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing with my dog Jax, surfing, and other outdoor activities. I love teaching dance because dance opens up numerous possibilities, provides a creative outlet for self-expression, and offers a fun way to keep healthy and master new skills.
