National Dance Week: Stage Door Dance

This week, we’re focused on celebrating dance and what it means to us. At Jackrabbit, we are honored to work with dance studio owners and love hearing about their passion. I love to see dance studio owners and teachers connect to share the love! Keep an eye out for the other posts in the National Dance Week series to meet some other awesome Jackrabbit Dance users!
Stage Door Dance: Founded in 2009, Chasta opened Stage Door Dance because I wanted to share the joy of performance and dance in an age-appropriate, positive, and nurturing environment- our goal is to train well-rounded dancers and people, on and off the stage. They now have two locations of our studio- one location is 4200 square feet and the other location is 1500 square feet. They also offer two satellite programs at area country clubs. Collectively, they serve 500 students.
Why do you dance?

Dance is a journey, and it is evolves over time. As a student, I danced for a variety of reasons: (1) to learn and grow, (2) to entertain, and (3) to inspire. Ultimately, now, as an educator, I do the same thing, but my approach and purpose has shifted and matured.

What is your passion?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

What didn’t I want to be? From an attorney to a dancer/choreographer to an editor to a forensics specialist, I considered many paths and options. I appreciate the diversity of my experiences because I feel like it allows a well-rounded perspective in my every day work. In considering a variety of career paths, dance and choreography was always steadfast and relevant, and I’m very blessed that it is now my career.

What is your biggest challenge and how do you overcome it?

The biggest personal challenge I’ve encountered in the dance industry is balancing passion and business. There’s a place and a necessity for both, and via time management and a supportive infrastructure, balance can be achieved.

What is one thing a dancer can’t live without?
A positive support system and a healthy lifestyle.
