Devin knew she wanted to dance from the moment she could walk. Her parents signed her up for classes at Academy of Danse when she was four years old, and she trained in all styles there for eleven years, competitively for four. She created and taught her own classes at the age of twelve to help pay her competition fees, and since then has fell in love with teaching.
In high school she trained and competed with Chapkis Dance Family on their senior team Prophecy for three years, and with the Lisa Clark Dancers for two. She also had the opportunity to teach at local middle schools and high schools throughout her teen years, giving her valuable teaching skills she could carry with her for the future. In college she danced and competed with Urban Dance Company at UCSB for three years, serving as artistic director and choreographer. During this time she also taught beginners hip hop at local Santa Barbara studios as well as returning home to teach master classes whenever she could!
After moving back home to Napa Devin knew she wanted to keep teaching, and came back to Academy of Danse as the new Hip Hop 5 teacher in 2019. A full circle moment! In 2020 her younger sister Erin joined her as an assistant and is now her co-coach for competition. Working with her sister and sharing their passion for dance is something she is the most thankful for and proud of!
