ABOUT US

 

About Us

(Teachers Featured Below)

 

Dance Dreams began in 1977 in the garage of Glenna's family home taking over her Mother's studio her senior year in high school. She attended U.N.C. at Charlotte while teaching in the evenings and Saturdays at the studio, then known as Griffith School of Dance. Glenna graduated with a degree in dance education K-12 holding a Bachelor of Creative Arts Degree. Her studio moved from Glenn Ave, to Cannon Village and finally her dream came true! She built her own studio where she is currently located today on Brookdale Street in Kannapolis. Glenna's love for theater is apparent in her yearly productions and her special talent with the younger students was recognized nationally by Showstopper, the nation’s largest talent competition. She currently teaches with Showstopper and SHOCK workshops as they travel nationally in the fall and maintains her position as director and full time instructor at Dance Dreams. Glenna has the opportunity to travel along side of So You Think You Can Dance choreographers as well as Broadway Stars. This is Glenna’s 41st  year of inspiring students of all ages.
