Mrs. Mishel'la White

Founder | Director | Instructor

Mishel'la has been dancing since the age of three. From the young age she would dance EVERY time she heard music, so naturally, her parents enrolled her in dance classes. Although she participated in multiple sports she discovered dance was her passion. From then on she participated in dance musicals, dance productions, met famous Broadway performers, traveled, taught dance at Westside Elementary School and even attended school for dance in college. She has always dreamed of one day having her own dance company and be able to give back to her community.

 

Now as a full time worker, wife and mom of two, her loved ones have encouraged her to make her life-time dream a reality - Mish Moves was birthed.

 

Note from the Director:

We are ecstatic and blessed with all the love we have received so far. I want to thank our AWESOME dancers, parents, sponsors, and most importantly, FAMILY. Because of you, we have accomplished so much in such little time. Thank you to EVERYONE who’s a part of not only this Dance Company but this movement. We couldn’t have done any of this without your support. This is only the beginning for Mish Moves Dance Company, Inc.
