LIZZY BENSFIELD

LIZZY BENSFIELD

Teaching Artist

Lizzy took her first dance lesson when she was 10 years old. She recognized her love for dance early on, however, it was not until high school that she began to take dance seriously, training in multiple styles: ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and lyrical. From there, Lizzy’s dance career took off. She was awarded a scholarship to Dance Olympus where she assisted Master Teachers all over the United States, and she received the Breakout Artist Winner at Nuvo Dance Convention as well as runner up at Jump Dance Convention. In 2009, Lizzy was accepted to the highly competitive and prestigious Beyond Words Dance Company where she participated in the Jazz Dance World Congress in Chicago and took first place. Later that year, she attended Capezio A.C.E. Awards in New York City and took second place for a piece called “Us.” In 2012, Lizzy was selected to be a part of the Kate Jablonski Statement, a professional Chicago dance company.

UPCOMING CLASSES

UNDER THE SEA

Ages 3 - 5

Dive under the sea! Using the power of our imaginations and the expression of our bodies we will visit coral reefs, befriend mermaids, swim with dolphins, and hunt for treasure in a submarine. Students will learn dance and drama basics through creative play, structured technique classes, games, and preparation for a final performance.
