Liz Portscheller

Liz is a 17 year old Senior at Lafayette High School. She loves being part of the DPA staff as a student teacher and is so excited for this upcoming year! It will be her third year teaching her own classes and sixth year assisting and substituting for DPA. This will be Liz’s ninth year competing and eighth year in the Danse Arts Company. She is also on the varsity high school dance team, Escadrille. She has competed and performed many different styles including jazz, pom, ballet, tap, hip hop, contemporary, and modern. Though she loves every style of dance, her absolute favorite is hip hop with jazz coming in a close second. This year Liz will be teaching Tap level 1 and Kids Hip Hop. She has experience teaching classes with ages 2 - 12. Though she has only been teaching for three years, she has worked with kids for eight through babysitting and working for Bricks 4 Kidz-St. Louis. Liz also received a Glory of Missouri award for Enterprise in 2017. Liz’s favorite part about teaching is getting to know the kids and seeing their strengths and character come out when they dance. She loves her kiddos with all her heart and is beyond excited to start another year with her DPA family!
