Miss Shayna has over 25 years of dance experience with a strong focus on pre-professional and competitive dance. She began her dance training under her mother, Helene Joy Chapman at the early age of 2. Her passion for dance grew immensely and by the age of 14 was selected to tour the country with the Dance Olympus faculty and performed in the closing show in each city.
By the time she was 17 years old, Shayna was teaching at the YMCA, local elementary schools as well as her mother’s dance studio - Helene Joy School of Dance. She continued to teach dance to multiple dance studios in Massachusetts for several years, building her dance resume and touching the lives of thousands of students she had the pleasure of working with. After winning a national dance competition in 2007 with her self-choreographed solo, she was awarded the "Future Star Award" and was featured in Dance Spirit Magazine.
In 2011, Shayna became the Company Director of the On Your Toes Dance & Theatre Company in Acton, MA. She has trained many students who have competed regionally, nationally and also invited to compete in the World Dance Championship where her students placed in the top 15 in the World. She is incredibly passionate about teaching dance and crafting creative and unique choreography for each student.
Miss Sarina has been dancing for over 30 years and has been teaching since she was 14 years old. She was the captain of her high school dance team and was asked to perform as a Lyrical soloist at The World’s Fair and Mayfair in Cambridge, MA. When she was 21 years old she took over The Dance Center of Waltham as the owner and artistic director. She decided on moving on from that studio and continue teaching and choreographing for recreational and competitive students across Massachusetts for all ages. More recently she has been specializing in teaching the youngest of dancers, focusing on caregiver/child and preschool dance classes as well as the lead singer of the Rock-A-Baby music classes in Newton, MA. When Sarina is not dancing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and brand new baby girl.
