About Hansing's School of Dance
Hi! I’m Lisa Young. I founded Hansing School of Dance with my father, John Hansing. Actually, he told me one day in 1989 that he had just rented some space in town and we were starting a Dance Studio! I had a three year old, a one year old and newborn at the time, so I was a bit incredulous. But the spot he had secured above the music store was perfect and off we went! My dad had danced professionally and had a studio in Bayview (Dancing Hansing’s) when I was young, so it wasn’t all brand new. Dancing had always been a part of our lives and Dance Education was my Major at UW Madison. He taught Tap and Tumbling and I taught Jazz and Ballet. We had a great run for over 20 years together and taught lots and lots of kids and adults to dance and hopefully to love dancing!
I lost my Dad in 2010 to cancer. It was quite a blow as many of you may know from personal experience but it has been extremely rewarding to keep teaching and fulfilling his vision. I think about him every single time I enter the Studio.
I have also been joined by Corianne who does a fantastic job with the kids. And my daughter, Melissa, is teaching now as well.
I hope you come try us out no matter your age or ability. Our studio has helped scores and scores of students excel at Dance for Musicals, Dance Team and Cheerleading. We do not compete and we get compliments about that every session. There is nothing wrong with competition, it’s just not what we are in this for.
Hope to see you soon!
