Ms. Lindsey has been dancing since the age of four. Her dance education began Lincoln, Nebraska and Lindsey has trained in almost every discipline. She has studied ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, pointe, pom-pom and hip hop for over 20 years. Lindsey began teaching dance at the age of 16 as an assistant teacher and has been teaching dance in Tallahassee for 13 years to dancers as young as two, all the way through adults!
Lindsey was a four-year member and two- year captain of the Lincoln High School dance team, and also danced competitively for 15 years and was a member of the award winning DancEffects team in Tallahassee. She has traveled all over the east coast and throughout Florida to take master classes, compete and attend dance conventions.
When she's not dancing, Lindsey spends her time doing CrossFit with her husband, cooking, doing projects around her house and spending time with her family. Lindsey joined the TADA staff in June of 2013 and has been in "Sarah's back pocket" ever since. New for Ms. Lindsey in 2017? Our very first TADA baby! Baby AC is due this fall and we are so excited!
