Welcome to Room 47

Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to room 47 and the wonderful world of DANCE! My name is Lindsey Farris and I am your child's dance teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my 16th year as a dance teacher for LAUSD. I have a degree in dance from the BEST school in the world.... UCLA! Go Bruins!
I have had the pleasure of being the dance director at Marina Del Rey Performing Arts Magnet for the past 10 years. I choreograph for the school musical and coach the school cheerleading team. I also own my own all star cheerleading and dance gym, LA Dream All Stars!
Between teaching dance, gymnastics, and coaching competitive cheerleading, I stay very busy. I have two little ones of my own who dance, cheer, play football and basketball. Besides running after them, I enjoy working out, playing guitar, snowboarding, hiking, and spending time with my husband.
I LOVE the arts and believe that the BEST education is one that incorporates creativity and project based learning. I look forward to getting to know all of my families this year!
Coach Farris
