Quote:”It takes an athlete to dance but an artist to be a dancer” – Shanna LaFleur
Caiti began her dance journey 22 years ago under the instruction of Ms. Cheryl Rauschenberger at A Step in Time School of Dance. After Cheryl’s retirement she began classes at Studio West Performing Arts Center where she was a proud member of their “Company” for 7 years.
Throughout her dance career, Caiti has taken many master classes from renowned dancers and choreographers such as Anthony LoCascio of the internationally acclaimed Tap Dogs, Jay Fagan, Diane Gudat and several So You Think You Can Dance alumni including Dominic Sandoval, Jesus Solorio and Jaimie Goodwin of Shaping Sound. She also stays very
active in the dance community by participating in classes at the studio and throughout Ohio.
Caiti has been educated in many areas of dance including Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Pointe, Modern and Hip Hop. She attended Dance Masters of America Teacher’s Training School, an intensive 5 day program held at The University of New York at Buffalo where she studied and completed her Level I Certification for teaching Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Modern. In 2013 Caiti attended Dance Life Teacher Conference in Phoenix, AZ to continue her study in dance education. Caiti olds certifications in Group Exercise from both the Aerobic and Fitness Association of America and the National Exercise Training Association.
She is also a Zumba Education Specialist and a regional national presenter for Zumba Fitness as well as a Verflow Master Trainer for the U.S.A. and Canada.
Caiti is thankful to have the support of her husband Brandon who has unlimited patience and gives the best pep talks a girl could ask for!
