.D

Building on over 15 years of dedication to dance and music, Lindi is thrilled to have new opportunities to share her passion for the arts at Studio Forte. Since taking her first dance and piano lessons at age six, Lindi has been consistently involved in the art forms as both student and teacher.
.
After moving to Dallas in 1998, she was the principle jazz instructor for Story Book Playhouse Dance Studio before moving back to St. Louis and starting an enormously successful summer dance program that provided the impetus and inspiration for opening Studio Forte in 2008. On the music side, Lindi has B.A. in music from Webster University and has taught private piano lessons to students of all ages and abilities since 2004. Lindi continues to expand her own talents and skills by participating in adult dance classes of all kinds, private piano lessons, and intensive teacher workshop weekends.
.

In addition to her years of artistic and teaching experience, Lindi brings to the classroom a genuine heart for children and how they learn, communicate and grow. She is committed to the philosophy that the discipline, confidence, team-work, and character traits cultivated by self expression through the arts not only create great artists, but great people as well.
