Tumbling - Dance With Me - Preschool Ballet - Preschool Tap/Jazz

Ms. Simar started her dance training 33 years ago, training in jazz, ballet, contemporary, modern, & tap. She began assistant teaching at age 15 & fell in love with teaching. Ms. Simar was a member of her high school dance company at Cottonwood High. After high school she continued teaching at various studios in the Salt Lake Valley along with judging dance competitions. In 2008 Ms. Simar opened a dance studio in her basement and later was taken out of her home and brought it into a preschool in West Jordan where she also taught. In 2018 Ms. Simar made the difficult decision to close her studio so she could pursue her teaching degree in elementary education. She truly believes in her students and their ability to excel at anything they are willing to work for!
