Introducing Miss Jo Anna


Miss Jo Anna began her lifelong love and career in dance at the tender age of two and one-half years.  With a natural desire to compete, she practically lived at the studio throughout her young life.  By the time she reached Junior High, dancing was a significant part of her life and a true love, compelling her to petition the school board where she attended to get a drill team in her high school.  After a long and hard fought successful battle the drill team was born.  In her senior year of High School, she was named the Captain, the 1st Head Officer of Texas Star Drill Team at Magnolia High School. Miss Jo Anna attended college where she majored in dance at North Harris, Tomball, SHSU, UT Arlington.  Miss Jo Anna was also a winning competitor in Miss Texas America, Miss Texas USA, and Miss Texas Hispanic scholarship pageants winning numerous vocal and general scholarships which she used to further her education.

In 1994. Miss Jo Anna became the Executive Director of   Lone Star Jazz, which ultimately evolved into Academy of Performing Arts Home of Lone Star Jazz, Drill Team & Cheer Boot Camp. Her decades of teaching experience and studio ownership allows her to bring a lot of hands on experience and technique to the table.

In addition to being the Director of our National Champion Studio Dance Teams she is also the Director of the 4 time National Champion Junior High Drill Team, Sacred Heart Stars, the award winning St. Anthony Angels Middle School Drill Team and the award winning Woodlands Prep Dazzlers High School Drill Team.  In 2013, Miss Jo Anna also became the Director of the Sacred Heart Cheer Team. 

She is a certified Judge in 3 dance competition categories: Team, Officers, and Solos and Ensembles.

What she is known for and most proud of is teaching and commissioning her staff to teach to clean music and utilizing age appropriate costumes and choreography. Her philosophy for her staff is: "As dance educators we should not compromise our ethics and family values for the exploitation of children to win trophies. You can teach, learn and win by choreographing clean. Stay true to who you are!"

 

Miss Jo Anna, the Director of The Academy of Performing Arts and Lone Star Jazz is the inspiratiion of all of our dance activities.
