Mindy Murphy

Mindy Murphy began her dance training in Omaha over 20 years ago.  She has been extensively trained in ballet, lyrical, jazz, modern, and cheer/pom.  She was a part of a National title winning cheerleading team in high school where she was a UCA All-Star and asked to be a part of the UCA staff. She then continued her education at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing and a Minor in Dance. UNL allowed her involvement in numerous shows choreographed by artists from Twyla Tharp Dance Company, Diavolo and Ballet Hispanico, and Carol Mezzacappa from DanceConsort (New York City). While at UNL Mindy was also a part of the NIFL Lincoln Capitols Dancers.After finishing school Mindy moved to Scottsdale, AZ for a promising career opportunity, and was lucky enough to continue her dance training as well. While in Arizona she danced with many industry professionals, taught at various studios, and took classes with the Phoenix Suns Dancers.

When she moved back to Omaha Nebraska, Mindy co-directed The Dance Authority’s Company team for two years prior to purchasing the studio and becoming the Director. Mindy continues her dance education by judging dance competitions and working with and learning from well-known dancers, choreographers and studios in Los Angeles– all of which introduces her to new, up and coming styles and genres of dance which has enriches her own personal style.

Mindy continues to share her love of dance with her students by directing, teaching, and most importantly, inspiring her students. She feels very fortunate to continue her dancing adventure with her husband Nick, sons Brixton and Beckam, and daughter Ava Pear.
