Hello! My name is Vani Tschantz and I grew up in Madison, WI. I started dancing ballet at the age of three. I danced Ballet, Jazz and Lyrical at A Step Above dance studio for 14 years. While at the studio I competed in the dance company attending competitions all over the Midwest and Nationals. In addition, I had the opportunity to train a summer under the director of the Madison Ballet Company.
Unfortunately, I had foot surgery in college and had to take a break from dancing. I attended College at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Health Care Administration. I currently serve as the Administrator of The Good Samaritan Society in Ottumwa.
In 2016 I met my husband, Trevor, and relocated to Washington. I have a daugher, Amari, and two step-sons, Sawyer and Parker. I am very excited to be teaching at Stairway to the Stars!!
