Kylie Mimitz

SCHOOL OWNER / DIRECTOR

I began my dance journey at age three at The School of Dance under Suzanne Stott. My passion for dance continued through college, where I earned a degree in Early Childhood Education and Development.

After college, I moved to Florida and Massachusetts to start my family. Eleven years ago, I returned to The School of Dance to teach. In 2018, I became part owner, and in 2022, I took on the role of full owner.

Over the years, I have participated in three studio relocations, each bringing more space and families who share our vision. It has been incredibly rewarding to see our community grow and thrive. I am excited to continue nurturing young dancers and fostering a love of dance in our ever-expanding family.
