“Not many people know, but I loved dance first. I would come home from school and draft up dance team information and make song lists with the hottest music out. Unfortunately, my town didn’t have anywhere to train for the art of dance, so I moved on to cheering. After years of cheering, I didn’t make the team my junior year. I was devastated, but it was God realigning me back to my purpose. I self-trained and went to clinics and camps. I then realized that it was my original passion and opening a studio became my dream. So now, where there may be many other kids who want somewhere to dance like I did, I’m able to provide them with that space for not only training in dance, but also a place of love that serves as a home away from home.”
Miss Tolbert dance studio has been home to the great children of Dadeville, Alabama. With such great success in her first shop; she outgrew and has opened a second shop with bigger space. She will also be taking her dancing students to a dance competition in Orlando Florida Disney World.
