Andrea Lakin

Dance Instructor

Birthday: December 9

3 Phrases to Describe my Dance Background are:

 1. I’ve always been moved by music, and started making up dances in my head when I was about 7 years old. Every time a good song came on the radio, I would shush anyone around me so I could focus! 

2. I started dancing with the Rockettes at 18 which was pretty awesome! I had lots of fun dancing professionally in NY and L.A. performing other people’s dances, but I still went home every night and made up more dances in my head. 

3. Eventually my body got tired of doing other people’s dances so I started teaching and doing choreography and have had a BLAST sharing the dances in my head with the kids at Rhythm! 

Rhythm Role: Dance Teacher

Favorite Rhythm Recital: Rhythm Orphan Annie

When not at Rhythm dancing, you will either find me running after my sweet baby girl (who is running after our dog), chillin’ with my main squeeze, Paul, at the gym, hanging out with family, crafting, writing, or doing some crazy DIY overhaul. We are OBSESSED with DIY. Our garage is basically a wood factory. We may or may not have made some cool recital props out of said garage.
