Staff Spotlight: Elizabeth Brennan – Dance

Posted 02/17/2016

What is a fun fact about you? I traveled with a professional dance company and was a dancer at Disney World

Where are you from? Bozeman, Montana

What experience led you to Trevista? I began working at Martin Luther King Jr. Early College as a Social Worker. I missed Dance SO much that I decided to apply for MLK’s new dance teacher position, unfortunately the program was not approved at MLK but our previous Principal LaDawn Baity heard of me through the grapevine and requested I attend an interview. The rest is history!

When did you decide to become a Dance Teacher? I have wanted to be a dancer and dance teacher since I was in kindergarten!

How long have you been a Dance Teacher? I have been teaching dance for 13 years

How do you decide what songs to do with each class? I have a few choices prior to each class but I make my final decisions on the song and dance style after I have gotten to know the class and their personalities. 

What are your goals for this upcoming Dance Recital? My goal for the upcoming dance recital is to beat our record of 97% attendance and make it a 100%!

What is your all time favorite dance you’ve choreographed at Trevista? My all time favorite dance I have choreographed at Trevista is The Lion King

What do you love most about being a part of the Trevista Community? The thing I love most about being a part of the Trevista community is sharing what I love with others and watching students increase in skill throughout their time spent in dance class.

Mark your calendars for the upcoming Dance Recital on February 18th! Fun fact about Trevista’s Dance program: we are the only elementary in Denver Public Schools with a true Dance class and curriculum. Our recitals are smash hits and have rave reviews! Come check our next one out.
