AVON — The instructors at The Dancer’s Place here have many close ties. Owner Terri Click taught most of them when they were younger and now they’re following in her footsteps — passing on their dancing knowledge to their students, in her studio.
“This was our house when we moved here — my husband and I,” Click said of the renovated home on County Road 625 East, just off of U.S. 36.
Through a flood in 2003 and many renovations in the area due to Avon’s growth, Click said, the studio has remained there for 26 years.
Click has a degree in physical education with a minor in dance from Indiana University. She said she taught physical education for five years after school, but always taught dance on the side.
Dance is still a part-time gig for Click, whose full-time job is at Harrison Retirement Community.
“Everybody here has another job or is a student,” Click explained of her instructors, adding that they all have different levels of dance experience. “We always instill in students that there is a lot of opportunity through dance that is not dancing.”
Anita Collier has worked many years with Click. She has a bachelor’s degree from Anderson University and is working on her master’s. She also has three children and works full-time as a vendor manager at Midwest ISO.
Collier and Danielle Grant, another instructor at The Dancer’s Place, are currently working on choreography for the Plainfield Junior Miss contest.
Grant, an elementary education student at IUPUI, is no stranger to choreographing. Last year, she said she worked on the Central Elementary School musical and planned out several routines as a cheerleader at Plainfield High School.
Ammie Moline has been at The Dancer’s Place since she was 3 years old, first taking classes, and now as an instructor. She is also a manager at T.G.I.Friday’s in Avon.
