Best Dance Studio Palmdale / Lancaster – Sarah Tyndall Instructor

Av Dancestudio

Sarah Tyndall
Instructor
Sarah was born in Lancaster, CA
Sarah started taking  dance class when she was three years old. Around the age of 8 or 9 she found that ballet was the type of dance that she was truly passionate about. To Sarah tap and jazz wasn’t as exciting anymore, so she decided to take all the ballet classes she could and eventually made it on to pointe. When Sarah left for college, she decided that ballet was something that she would have to continue, it was part of her soul.  She danced under the direction of Pamela McCray and Shanda Hanson with the Staunton Academy of Ballet.


AV Dance Studio ’81 was where Sarah took her first dance class. With the exception SAB and Masters class, it is the only studio she has danced with. Her first class was combo with Trina St.Pierre and Lidia Landon Michael then she moved to Rhonda Gonzales’ combo and finally solely ballet with Barbara Coates and then Sue Becker. After many, many years and hours of hard work a dedication she was strong enough to go on pointe. Sarah is now teaching ballet classes and every single time it seems so surreal to teach at the studio where she grew up!


Sarah’s sister, Hannah, also danced with the studio and is currently attending UC Davis. Sarah earned a B.A. in communications with a minor in graphic design from Mary Baldwin College in Virginia. She is currently working in the political field with the long term goal of moving back to the East Coast to work in Washington, DC.

Sonja Beck Instructor


Sonja was born on July 4, 1961 in Torrance, CA.


Sonja started ballet training at age 8 at The Dance Workshop in Lancaster.  In high school Sonja enrolled at Caravan Dance Studio taking jazz and ballet.  That studio went on to become AV Dance Studio ’81 where Sonja continued classes.  Sonja attended AV High School and dance classes were a part of her physical education department.  Sonja was a founding member of the AVHS Dance Team and also attended dance camps throughout high school. Sonja taught dance and drill camps for the United Spirit Association for 4 years, served as director for the AVHS Dance Team for 2 years and went on to become a dance team adjudicator for over 25 years.

Sonja has been an instructor at Studio ’81 for over 20 years.  She has taught ballet, jazz, sacred, lyrical and yoga. Her passion has been lyrical as it allows her an outlet for creative choreography.
Sonja has been married to my loving husband Bret for 30 years.  They have 2 grown and married sons. Her and Bret were blessed with their first granddaughter this year and are expecting a grandson in 2011.  These are her proudest accomplishments.
