After starting her first ballet class at the age of six, Lindsay Pierson discovered a strong passion for dance. Lindsay is a native of the Memphis, TN area, but at age fourteen she begin traveling each summer for different ballet programs. Many of these programs include, Ballet Arts of Jackson, The Atlanta Ballet, The Nashville Ballet, and the Louisville Ballet. She danced as a Performing Member with Ballet Arts of Jackson, performing principle roles in productions such as “The Nutcracker,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Tales of Beatrix Potter,” “Cinderella,” and many more. At the age of eighteen, Lindsay packed up and moved across the country to Los Angeles, CA, to pursue a career with the widely popular group called “The Young Americans.” The Young Americans opened up many opportunities for Lindsay including the opportunity to teach dance, and perform all over the United States, and in countries all over the world such as Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Holland, Japan, Korea, and most recently China. She spent four years working, performing, and touring with the group. Lindsay has also had the opportunity to work with contemporary master teachers and choreographers such as Cody Green, Alex Little, Doug Caldwell, and Suzy Miller. She most recently worked as an assistant teacher to ballet master teacher Robyn Brawley, and worked in The Young American’s Dinner Theater in Boyne Highlands, Michigan. Lindsay also has a passion for photography and music, but especially for teaching. She believes that being a good teacher is more than just teaching steps, but adjusting to the needs of each student and forming personal relationships with each of them, she believes, is what makes a teacher great.
