Meet Lindy Pierce
Lindy has a passion for dance that started when she was began studying classical ballet at the age of 10 at Olia’s School of Dance in New Jersey. While there, she studied under the famous Miss Olia, who was trained at the Paris Opera Ballet and was a former dancer with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. During her time with Miss Olia, Lindy was a soloist in Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty and danced in La Bayadere and Beethoven’s Contra Dances. She went on to add modern jazz, tap, and pointe to her studies, as well as acting, and enjoyed performing in ballets, recitals, and musical theater productions. Lindy also completed a summer term at Ballet Arts of Carnegie Hall in New York City. These experiences, in turn, equipped her to be both a choreographer and a dance instructor.
In addition to dance, Lindy has a heart for children. She graduated from Campbellsville University with a degree in K-4 education. She worked in the field for 12 years before returning to dance and studying with the Louisville Ballet and later opening a home dance studio, where she taught for several years.
