Lidia Landon Michael - Instructor

Lidia was born to John and Lidia Landon on April 24, 1957. She has one brother, John, and one sister, Tina. Lidia’s early training was under Joyce Pearson, who was the owner of Caravan School of Dance in Lancaster (The future A.V Dance Studio ’81). During her teen years, Lidia was an assistant instructor at Caravan.

Lidia also studied under many famous L.A. teachers, including Joe Tremaine and Roland Dupree’. Lidia has taught at several dance camps and conventions as well as at Antelope Valley College. Lidia is a graduate of Antelope Valley College and of Cal State University in Fullerton. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a concentration in Dance. After graduation, Lidia bought Caravan School of Dance and became partners with her good friend, Cyndi Lund Gallegos.

The new ownership took place in 1981, hence the name “A.V. Dance Studio ‘81”. Lidia has performed in and choreographed many local theatre productions, including Cabaret, A Chorus Line, Kiss Me Kate, The Boyfriend, Cinderella, Can Can and Oliver. She was a featured dancer in the Movie “UFORIA” and a two time winner on the Original TV series “The Gong Show”.

1981 was also special in another way for Lidia. That is when she married her sweetheart, Greg Michael. Greg and Lidia have been blest with six beautiful children. It was after the birth of child #6 that Lidia finally realized God was calling her to be a full time Mommy and only a part time dancer. So, in 2005 Lidia sold A.V. Dance Studio ’81 to her student and friend, Candice Douglas. Currently, Lidia fills her days with “Mommy” duties and is very involved in religious education at her church, Blessed Junipero Serra Parish.

However, she still finds time to teach a few dance classes here at the studio, and truly enjoys her time with her students.
