OUR SCHOOL YEAR SCHEDULE BEGINS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 1st!
Lisa is an alumnus of Rozann-Zimmerman Ballet Center and received her first scholarship to the School of American Ballet at age 15. She continued her training under Melissa Hayden, former prima ballerina of New York City Ballet. At Pennsylvania Ballet, she trained in the apprentice program under Lupe Serrano, ballerina with American Ballet Theatre. She danced professionally for 10 years with Pacific Northwest Ballet, Arizona Ballet, Puerto Rican Dance Theatre of New York City, Cleveland Ballet and Los Angeles Chamber Ballet. A student in the Balanchine tradition, she believes it is the preferred style of the 21st Century. It is the technique taught at Cuizon Ballet Centre.
Lisa has been teaching for 36 years and opened her own studio in 2001. It was her dream to offer training at a professional level since she had seen her own dream of being a dancer come true. She wanted to make that a reality for other students who’s dream it was to pursue a career as a dancer. She chooses her staff carefully, making sure that each teacher has had a career of their own and therefore, knows what it truly takes to choose the life of a dancer.
