Mindy Cox started dancing at the age of five. Soon after, her family moved and her dance studio was too far away. Her ballet teacher encouraged Mindy to keep dancing and gave her an “all about ballet” book. Every day she read and practiced from that book. After two years, she moved back to her hometown and was again able to attend dance classes. She danced with Kandi’s Dance Academy performing company for 5 years. She then danced for Cumberland College while continuing he professional lessons with the Lexington Tap and Jazz Company. She began teaching for Dance Centre in Williamsburg, Kentucky in 1998. It was then she realized she loved to teach dance as much as she loved to dance herself. Mindy is trained in ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, and hip hop. She has studied with some of the world’s great dance teachers including Joe Tremaine, Darryl Retter, Jay T. Jenkins, and tap legend Al Gilbert. However, she never forgot her first dance teacher; the one that taught her that if you love to dance, you should never give it up. She hopes to pass this philosophy along to her students. Mindy resides in Lawrenceville with her husband and two children. She loves to bake, play tennis, and garden. She also loves hanging out with her family and volunteering at church. Mindy is so excited about joining the GDU teaching staff this year and is looking forward to meeting your dancer.
