Arianne Kluesner (Miss Ari)

I started dancing at the age of 3. My mom was a tap dancer/teacher so I was at the studio all the time! My dad says I was a natural, always standing just one step in front of the other kids! I studied ballet, tap and jazz and completed my Advanced level Exams in the Royal Academy of Dancing and the Imperial Society of Dance while in high school. I attended the University of Iowa, and graduated with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Dance. My husband and I moved to Madison in 1999. I have taught at multiple studios in town. I danced with Jazzworks Dance company from 2002-2010 and also choreographed for the company. I taught dance at the YMCA of Dane County from 2000-2013, and directed the program from 2010-2013.

Currently I teach at Ultimate Leap Dance Center and have been there since 2014.

I also enjoy teaching Zumba! I have been certified in Zumba since 2009. And Aqua certified in 2010. I teach Aqua Zumba classes at the Monona Grove High School pool during the year and the Monona outdoor pool in the summer.

I am very excited to start classes at the Monona Community Center and share my love and passion of dance!
