When Shaina Wise was 3 years old and had finished her first year in dance, her mother asked her and her sister if they wanted to continue. While her sisters said, "no," Shaina's response was, "I want to take her class and her class and my class!" And so began her love of the stage. Shaina is a native of Miami, FL, and has been trained in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, pointe, hip hop, acrobatics, and musical theatre. Shaina attended a prestigious high school where she specialized in dance. She was involved in competition team both at her home studio and school, where she was Dance Captain. Shaina was part of a non-profit dance company, "Expressions Dance," where she had many lead roles. She has also been a lead or supporting role in many musicals, including Grease, 100 Years of Broadway, and Copa Cabana. She began assistant teaching at the age of 12. When she graduated at 18 years old, she began teaching her own classes. Shaina has always believed dance is where where her heart is; seeing children grow, learn and love this art form has always been her passion. She is very excited to be teaching at Soul II Sole and can't wait to meet all of you! Her adult classes are wonderful!
