Isabella began dancing at the age of four and received most of her classical ballet training from the Houston Ballet Academy. After moving to California in high school, Isabella trained with Long Beach Ballet and was a dancer on their China tour in 2010. Isabella has also trained in many other styles including tap, jazz, musical theater, modern, and contemporary, and attended the Rockette Summer Intensive in NYC for four summers. In addition to dancing, Isabella sings and acts and has performed with professional musical theater companies around Los Angeles including 3-D Theatricals, Musical Theatre West, and Palos Verdes Performing Arts. Isabella graduated from UCLA this past spring with a B.S. in Biology and a Theater minor.
Isabella began teaching dance at the age of 17 after her parents converted a room in their house into a little dance studio. For the next year, she had the time of her life running her very own studio where she taught ballet, musical theater, jazz, tap group and private classes to her siblings, neighbors, and friends. Isabella has now been teaching all styles and levels of dance at Dance 1 for over four years.
“It is always such a joy to teach dancers of all ages how to be storytellers through dance.” – Isabella
