Michelle Wentworth Columbia was born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona where she began dancing at the age of 5. While training in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip-hop she participated in countless conventions and competitions across the country. She began teaching in high school at her childhood studio and fell in love with seeing her students grow and find confidence through dance. Since moving to Phoenix in 2006, Michelle has taught at numerous studios in the valley, choreographed for local high school dance/cheer teams, and been fortunate enough to train under some of Phoenix’s most talented dancers. She has performed with Flo Rida at the Superbowl’s Apple Bottom Fashion Show, been a member of the ASU Hip Hop Coalition, The Janet Project, and the Phoenix Suns APS Solar Squad. Michelle has been teaching at PDC since its inception, and she loves directing the studio’s Pre Company teams!
