Andrea danced with the Utah Angels of American Fork and Orem for several years. She then moved on to more competitive studios, where she could progress her dance training faster, training at studios such as Jazz n’ Place, Studio 1, and Dream Alley under the direction of Garth Peay.
In addition to competing with her traveling competition teams, Andrea also competed with solos around the state of Utah; competing against other studio soloists, as well as competing in Drill Down, taking several “Queen” awards in both solos and drill down.

Andrea began her teaching career with the Utah Angels in 1997 at the age of 17. She also has choreographed dances for participants in the Miss Pleasant Grove pageant, as well as other soloists that competed at competitions around Utah. In 1999, she opened her owned studio in Orem, Utah. After a short relocation to Provo, Andrea has found a permanent home in Lehi for her studio, “The Edge Dance Studio”.
She opened her home studio in 2004, and it quickly grew to over 100 dancers. She knew it was time to expand and give her dancers more. After looking for quite a while, she found an amazing space that allows her dancers to learn many different styles and genres. Andrea currently resides in Lehi with her husband, JD, and her two fabulous children: her son Braydon and her daughter Tylar. Andrea continues to teach and loves seeing the sparkle in her students’ eyes as they discover their love for dance. She hopes to continue to teach for years to come and continue to give her dancers amazing opportunities..
