Lisa Waddell

Lisa is the owner of the Dance Connection and has been teaching dance for over 25 years! She started her young career as a competitive gymnast and after numerous injuries decided to start dancing! She trained in all styles of dance throughout the valley, and had the opportunity to dance her way through New York and Russia with a performing company. She started teaching at the young age of 15 and realized then, that was her love!

Immediately after graduating from high school, she opened the Dance Connection with her sister Lori. This is Dance Connection’s 29th year! Lisa’s specialty is jazz and tap for all ages but has a “special” knack for the very young dancers beginning at 2 years old. She loves her little ones! One of Lisa’s biggest accomplishments is raising her twin girls Aspen & Kassidy, they have started their first year in college. Lisa feels like the Dance Connection has a place for everyone, from the “just for fun” dancer or the “competitive” dancer. They offer classes for all levels, providing a professional education in a family atmosphere.
