Riley Cleveland: Teacher Assistant

Riley has been at Dance Gallery Chicago since the age of 2. Ever since she was little, she has taken multiple classes at Dance Gallery, that has ultimately deepened her love and passion of dance. Along with being a current Dance Gallery student, she is also a teacher’s assistant to Ms. Jamie. Riley has been working with Ms. Jamie for the past 4 years in the 2-year old Creative Movement class.

Riley’s favorite part of working with the 2 year olds is watching them grow from the moment they first walked into the class.

“I enjoy seeing the smiling faces I am greeted with as the 2-year olds are running into class because they are excited to be there. I am grateful to be working alongside Ms. Jamie and have the opportunity to witness those moments myself. I have loved being apart of the Dance Gallery community because the studio has become a second home to me. I always feel happiest when I am there and when I am dancing.”
