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.

Lidia Landon Michael Instructor

 AV Dance Studio 81 is Proud to be on the BLVD!  AV Dance Studio 81

 

Lidia Landon Michael 

 Instructor

 

Lidia was born to John and Lidia Landon on April 24, 1957.  She has one brother, John, and one sister, Tina. 
Lidia’s early training was under Joyce Pearson, who was the owner of Caravan School of Dance in Lancaster (The future A.V Dance Studio ’81).  During her teen years, Lidia was an assistant instructor at Caravan. Lidia also studied under many famous L.A. teachers, including Joe Tremaine and Roland Dupree’.  Lidia has taught at several dance camps and conventions as well as at Antelope Valley College. 
 
Lidia is a graduate of Antelope Valley College and of Cal State University in Fullerton.  She received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a concentration in Dance.  After graduation, Lidia bought Caravan School of Dance and became partners with her good friend, Cyndi Lund Gallegos.  The new ownership took place in 1981, hence the name “A.V. Dance Studio ‘81”.  

Lidia has performed in and choreographed many local theatre productions, including Cabaret, A Chorus Line, Kiss Me Kate, The Boyfriend, Cinderella, Can Can and Oliver. She was a featured dancer in the Movie “UFORIA” and a two time winner on the Original TV series “The Gong Show”.
 1981 was also special in another way for Lidia.  That is when she married her sweetheart, Greg Michael.  Greg and Lidia have been blest with six beautiful children.  It was after the birth of child #6 that Lidia finally realized God was calling her to be a full time Mommy and only a part time dancer.   So, in 2005 Lidia sold A.V. Dance Studio ’81 to her student and friend, Candice Douglas. 
Currently, Lidia fills her days with “Mommy” duties and is very involved in religious education at her church, Blessed Junipero Serra Parish.  However, she still finds time to teach a few dance classes here at the studio, and truly enjoys her time with her students.
