Mary Allison (Project Based Dancer) has been dancing with SCD since 2011 fresh from the University of Florida’s Dance program, where she received her BFA and developed a passion for choreography and performance. Since residing in beautiful, art-centered Sarasota, Mary has helped develop Woodland Fine Arts Academy’s Dance Program and is currently their Dance Director, Modern Dance Teacher, and Musical Theater Choreographer. Mary has a passion for teaching and motivating young artists to pursue growth, understanding, excellence and a love for movement and expression. Currently undergoing YogaFaith teacher training, Mary is growing in her passion to find alignment and centering in the mind, body, and spirit...worshiping and honoring God in the process. She is ever thankful for an outlet of performing and constant discovery with her dance family/community at SCD. Mary believes as long as you have an openness and a student mindset, you will never stay stagnant.
