MaryPat Dorr joined the DanceLova Dance Academy Student Services team in September 2019, and was promoted to Studio Manager in May 2021. Her motivation to excel at her job stems from being surrounded by team members that inspire her and students that consistently work hard.
Born in Ohio, MaryPat grew up in Kentucky and began dancing at age 11. She eventually moved back to her birthplace where she attended Baldwin Wallace University, studying Arts Management and Dance. During this time, she also became engulfed in the world of modern dance where she performed with a professional dance company for over 4 years. She now looks back at many memorable experiences such as teaching dance to Cleveland’s youth, performing at various showcases and events, and choreographing her university’s annual dance concert.
MaryPat’s passion for dance is what led her to study the administrative side of the arts. Upon graduation, she moved to California to start her new chapter in life and professionally develop, leading her to DanceLova. She is also delving into the world of commercial dance where she hopes to achieve a performance career during her time in California.
