Hey there! My name is LindsAy and I LOVE teaching! I’m a ND native who grew up flipping and hand-walking at gymnastics practice since the age of 2. Competing in gymnastics fostered a desire in me to perform. It wasn't until college that I found enough courage to audition for a play! Afterwards I was hooked. I received my Bachelors in Acting and Directing and a Dance minor at Minnesota State Univ. Moorhead.
Character acting, physical theatre, and comedy are my strengths, and this fact drew me to grad school at Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre in Blue Lake, California. Here my studies included; Acrobatics, Mask Work, Melodrama, Ensemble Movement, character choreography, and Clown performance.
I was lucky to get hired right out of school and I’ve performed various types of theatre all across the country, touring with notable companies like; Tears of Joy Puppet Theatre, Portland Actors’ Ensemble, and Do Jump Extremely Physical Theatre. It was at Do Jump that I trained in Single-Point Dance Trapeze and Partner Acrobatics. My most memorable role was a giant (two-person) ninja-ballerina that jeted and back-flipped across the New Victory Stage in New York!
I am also a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance and Buti Yoga. I have specialty certifications in Vinyasa-based Yoga Instruction, Buti Yoga Instruction-Levels 1 & 2, Hot Buti, Advanced Buti Yoga Instruction, Hotcore, Buti Sculpt, Barre Bliss, and Group Fitness Leading. I was accepted as a Master Trainee through Buti Yoga and hope to make Master Trainer with Buti Yoga this year, where I will teach women all over the world how to become a Buti Yoga Instructor. (Don't fret, I'm not leaving Bismarck!)
I am also a certified DoTerra Aromatouch Technician, and I love to enhance my classes and daily life with essential oils. In my free time, you might see me swinging on the trapeze in my living room, running around town with my puppy Tula, or kickin it on the river with my adorable husband Ry. I'm so eager and overjoyed to work with the amazing kids and parents at Danceworx. You all are a true treat.
