The National Dance Association is proud to announce the K-12 National Dance Educator of the Year: Kimberleigh Anderson of Heritage High School of Vancouver, Washington.
Kimberleigh has been teaching dance in the public school system for 15+ years. Starting as a math teacher with a single dance class at Heritage High School, she has developed the dance curriculum which is now used in all high schools in the Evergreen school district. She and her team are in the process of adding more classes for the students, as there is a high demand! Kimberleigh notes, "I am blessed to teach dance full time, working with 180 dance students every single day. I am also the director of our competitive dance group, the Wolf-Pack Dance Team, and get to travel and compete with this group of 33 amazing dancers."
