Lin began her studies at age 5 with Madame Halina, a Russian classical ballet instructor in Elmira, New York and has been teaching all ages for over 30 years. She taught dance in Pennsylvania, New York and Colorado before moving to Melbourne, Florida to pursue her dream of opening her own dance studio.  She received a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Management with a minor in Psychology from the University of Colorado.  She attends several dance conventions and intensive teacher training workshops a year to keep abreast of the latest teaching techniques.  Lin’s spunk and creativity in the classroom is adored by students of all ages.  Lin’s energetic style and incredible talent to choreograph makes dancing fun for all – both students and audiences.  Lin has successfully directed several award winning dance teams and has received several choreography and outstanding studio awards.  Former students have gone on to dance at universities and professional companies.  Lin is delighted to bring the love of dance to her community through her visions and dreams.  Her students are her inspiration and her children Kaleb and Sierra are her foundation.
