Katrina Patterson- Competitive dance instructor

I have more than 20 years of dance experience and am very passionate about dance and look forward to sharing my knowledge of dance with your children. I have studied many different styles of dance including ballet, tap, jazz, poms, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, musical theater and competitive dance. I have gold, platinum, and national winning titles. I have also had an amazing opportunity to be able to tour through the summer of 2006 with the Joel Ruminers dance camp. I absolutely enjoy working with children and I am currently studying pre-med at Maryville University. I am looking forward to the opportunity of sharing my dance skills and the love of dance with your children. I hope to advance and polish their dance skills and provide them with a positive and successful dance experience.

Stephanie Dalton- Dance Instructor

I was late bloomer in the dance world, starting at 10 years old. I took as many classes as possible and started competing. I was so passionate about dance that I started assisting at 16 and teaching my own classes at 18. My love for dance developed and I decided to make it a career. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from Lindenwood University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Missouri Baptist University. I developed and managed the dance program and coached the dance team at Mineral Area College. I have choreographed several routines for high school dance teams, recreational and competitive dance numbers, and some musicals at MAC. I’m delighted to join the team at Dance Fever and look forward to sharing my love of dance!

Kristie Marnin- Dance Director 

I starting working at Olympia in 2003 as the Competitive Gymnastic coach and Team Director and became the Gym Manager in 2008 and the Dance Director in 2012. I was very active in competitive gymnastics and dance as a child starting at age 3, winning many state and national titles. I have experience coaching gymnastics and dance to preschool age children through high school both at recreational and competitive levels for 30 plus years. I have more than 40 years of dance experience and have won special choreography awards at both the regional and national level. I  believe dance and gymnastics teaches good values, confidence and respect. I am happy to work in such a positive environment on a daily basis.
