MISS MORREA ANDERSON
Instructor/All Star Coach/Office Assistant
Morrea started dancing at the age of three and has since continued. Growing up she attended multiple studios where she was able to engage in many different learning styles and genres. She danced in both recreational and competition classes but never quite felt like she fit in. That all changed after she came to Attitude. At the age of thirteen, Morrea decided it was time for her to try out a new dance studio, little did she know this was the last time she would have to do this.
Her first year at Attitude she took recreational classes in lyrical, jazz, and hip hop. In these classes she continued to grow in her performance skills, technique and passion for dance. It was no surprise that after her first year she would try out for the competition team. After making the team she would continue to compete every year since.
Morrea continues to dance and compete herself while continuing her own dance education.
While in high school Morrea would assist in both recreational and competitive classes. Not only did her passion for dance grow, but a new passion for teaching sparked. She is overjoyed to be a teacher at Attitude and cannot wait to see what her future dance career will bring!
