Brooke Hanson

Brooke Hanson childI have been dancing my entire life, starting at a studio that my mom, Tasha, owned in Mt. Pleasant. When I was in seventh grade, we moved to Washington and I began classes at Stairway to the Stars where I stayed until graduation. After graduating high school, I went to Iowa State University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Business along with a minor in Dance.

I now live in Washington with my husband Ben, daughter Adelaide, and our dog Sherman. I work at Washington State Bank during the day and teach Ballet, Jazz, and Pointe two nights a week at Stairway to the Stars. I enjoy teaching because it allows me to share my passion with my students and see them grow and develop their own passion for dance.
