                                                             Lindsay Via   

 North Carolina native and was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. She began her dance training at the tender age of five and received most of it from Pierrette Sadler Danceurs and CC & Co. Dance Complex (voted one of the top 25 studios in the nation). The genres of her training include ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, latin, hip hop, musical theatre and flamenco. She had the pleasure to work with talented choreographers such as Tabitha and Napoleon (“So You Think You Can Dance?”), Nick Bass (“This Is It”), Lauren Adams (“Moving Still”), Mandy Moore (“So You Think You Can Dance?”), and Tyce Dioro ("So You Think You Can Dance?"). After graduating from high school she continued her training by receiving a BFA in dance performance from East Carolina University with a concentration in jazz with a minor in Spanish.
Lindsay was a dancer with Atlanta's premier contemporary jazz dance company Atlanta Dance Connection under the close direction of Mr. Allyne D. Gartrell for two consecutive seasons.
