Lisa Brown has been dancing since the early age of 5, when her father forced her to participate in an art showcase he coordinated for their community in Staten Island, NY where she was born. Despite the impromptu nature of this request, Lisa immediately connected with her natural given skill to dance and stole the show. At that point Lisa recognized her love for dance and realized early on that it was what she was destined to do. Lisa joined her father in an endeavor to start “Unique Fitness”, a dance studio launched in 2002 geared to attract young performers of Kingston, NY, the community in which she was raised. Lisa taught dancers ranging from elementary age to High School. In 2003 Lisa and her father created a dance troupe called Energy Dance Company where Lisa was a primary dancer and key instructor. In 2006 Unique Fitness merged with the Center for Creative Education, a non-profit community organization based in Kingston, NY. She maintained her position as a dance instructor and Troupe Leader along with coordinating numerous children’s programs and performance events. Lisa’s dance training stems from Broadway Dance Studio of New York, NY to Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy of Culver City, California. Lisa is known for her always new and fresh choreography and is loved and respected by all of her students as well as their parents. For nearly 20 years Lisa has impressed others with her dynamic dance skills combined with her passionate work with children of all ages. She is an avid believer in good mental and physical health and is determined to continue serving as a positive role model for youth. Contact Lisa at firstname.lastname@example.org
