         Marla Bradley, Owner and Manager Marla coached the Forest Park High School and Middle School Dance Teams for 8 years.  During that time, the Dance Teams have been to many competitions and won many awards.  Marla focuses on student’s abilities and the way each dancer fits into the team as a whole.  Each dancer’s special ability is emphasized to show that every person has different strengths.  Marla believes it is very important that a team should work together to help one another strive to make each other better, not only as a dancer, but as a person.  Being on a dance team teaches children much more than just dance; it can teach them to work hard, be punctual, work well with others, and to support their teammates. These are the characteristics that will be found at Inclusion Dance.  Marla wants to see everyone included!  Fairness isn’t giving everyone the same thing.  Fairness is giving everyone what they need to succeed.  Not everyone will be treated the same because not everyone is the same.  Treating everyone fairly and including them is important at Inclusion Dance.          Jean Moore, Head Gymnastics and Acro Teacher Jean started taking gymnastics as a second grader because her sister, Angela was teaching it. She fell in love with gymnastics! She took Angela's classes for many years and began teaching with her as soon as she could.  In high, school Jean was a fantastic cheerleader using all of her gymnastics skills that she learned throughout the years of classes. Jean resumed teaching again with her sister at a local studio a few years back.  She continued to teach at that studio on her own for a few more years.  Then for two years, Jean independently taught top-notch gymnastics at various locations.  Jean is an extraordinary coach for floor, beam and acro gymnastics. 2018-2019 will be Jean’s second year teaching at Inclusion Dance.              KayCee Smith, Adaptive Dance, Gymnastics Teacher, and Parkour Assistant KayCee started gymnastics in high school, along with volleyball and track and field.  She fell in love with gymnastics and realized that it is a sport any can participate in despite their size or age.  In recent years, KayCee has been a high school volleyball coach and loves working with children of all ages.

This year KayCee will also be the Parkour assistant. 2018-2019 will be KayCee’s second year teaching at Inclusion Dance.          Miranda Straka, Dance Teacher Miranda is a junior at Northern Michigan University, currently working towards a bachelors in Plant Chemistry.
