Lead Dance Instructor
Debbie has danced since the age of 3 and has taught dance in the Tri-City area since high school. Throughout her life she danced at local studios, studied with the Bristol Ballet Company, and took class with many top dancer/choreographers in the country in both NY and LA. In addition to choreography and instruction at On Pointe, Debbie judges for many dance competitions nationally and all over the southeast.
Debbie has danced in numerous theatre productions and while attending college at ETSU she was a member of the Golden Girls dance team. Her love for dance has taken her all over the world to perform with dance companies in places such as Greece, Japan, Romania, and Russia.
Throughout her years as an instructor, many of her students have gone on to dance professionally all over the U.S. including LA, Vegas, and NY. Her students have performed on Broadway, on cruise ships, danced at Opryland, and have been members of college and NBA dance teams.
Even with these impressive accomplishments her passion has always remained with the children in the studio. Her desire is to teach them proper technique while also instilling in them a love for the stage and performing. Dance goes way beyond the classroom walls!
Debbie grew up in Johnson City and she is married to Richard, her high school sweetheart and they have 2 children. Lindsay lives in LA and has danced professionally since 18. Brandon graduates from Mercer pharmacy school in May. "I am so thankful and blessed to be a part of On Pointe for the past 5 years and look forward to many more."
