Candice Marie Beatty - Director

Born September 23, 1981 Stoneham, MA My first dance education started at AV dance Studio ’81 at age 11 and continued till I was 19.

At that time I was also taking classes at AVC with Cindy Littlefield, Kathy Bingham & Kathleen Burrnet. After AVC came Cal State Fullerton were I received a Bachelors of Art in Dance. My history with Dance Studio ’81 started at age 11 with a Jazz class with Miss Judy Ortiz. A friend of mine told me about the studio and I asked my mom if I could go and I guess you could say the rest is history. I immediately loved it. One class turned into 2 classes which turned into taking anything my mom would let me take.

If I wasn’t at home I was at school if not at school I was at the studio. After several years I was asked to become a teacher’s assistant, then I worked in the office, then I received my first class to teach on my own. I went away to college (for 3 years) and as I was graduating I received an email from Lidia asking if I had any plans and if not would I like to come back and purchase the dance studio. Well the rest is history.

I am on my 6th year of running the dance studio and LOVE every moment of it. While I was away at college I worked for Disney. I was a parade performer for 3 years down there. I finished my last year there in the 50th Celebration Parade as the original Can-Can puppet in the Pinochio unit. I was fortunate to dance on the Regis & Kelly show, dance in the special break out parade that they opened up only to the press and invited guest. I was also in ads for Disney.

Disney is also where I met my husband Chris and it’s where he proposed to me right before a parade (a great story if you have time one day.) No kids yet, just 2 dogs and that’s enough for now.
