Meet Mika

  • Early Childhood Special Education Certification
  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! My name is Mika and I moved here from sunny California last year! I am very energetic, organized and active. I graduated with a bachelor of science in child and adolescent studies with an emphasis on children's performing arts. I have been a master dance teacher for children of all ages ranging from 2-19 years of age for over a decade now as well as a professional dancer and choreographer. I have worked with more than 75 kids per hour and have worked closely to 1000 different kids during my span of teaching and working with individual children. I am CPR certified and am very comfortable driving and multitasking. I feel very confident in caring and connecting with children of all ages. In the summer, I run dance camps while taking care and teaching children of all ages. I believe there is nothing more important than building a child's Read more self-confidence and fostering a positive and creative environment. I have many references from families I work with daily at the dance studio and others that I have watched and seen grow up. I hope to meet you soon :) -Mika
