Alana Hendricks- Instructor
Dancing has been a passion of Alana’s since the time she was 5 years old. Alana danced at Gotta Dance Academy in Simi Valley California where she performed in countless recitals. When she was not dancing, she was assisting her teachers in the toddler classes and practicing moves by herself in the kitchen. Some of her favorite types of dance include lyrical, jazz and ballet. As a young, competitive dancer, Alana spent about 20 hours a week in class learning new routines and choreography. As she excelled in dance into her teen and young adult years, she became more experienced in contemporary, modern, and tumbling. Her other hobbies include painting, surfing (when she is home in California), hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
