We have two main teachers at the studio, as well as assistant teachers in every class.
Missy Scheller (Owner/Teacher)
Missy is the owner of Bleker School of Dance. Her parents opened the studio in 1957, and she grew up taking classes in tap, jazz, and ballet from her mother, Joan Bleker. Missy has attended numerous dance conventions and competitions over her 30+ years of teaching, and continues to teach fresh choreography with the same foundation in technique that was started by her parents years ago. She teaches tap, jazz, lyrical, and toe tap, and was recognized as Dance Teacher of the Year in 2019 by Dance Revolution.
Peyton Scheller (Teacher)
Peyton is Missy's daughter-in-law, and she grew up dancing at Bleker School of Dance training in all styles. Outside of the studio, Peyton also danced for both high school and collegiate dance teams, and she also spent a semester working in entertainment at Walt Disney World. Peyton teaches tap, jazz, hip hop and lyrical, and she was recognized as Dance Teacher of the Year in 2020 by Dance Revolution.
We have assistant teachers in every class which helps provide one-on-one interaction with the dancers, and keeps the class running smoothly.
