Autumn began her dance education at the age of two. She studied in the genres of tap, ballet, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop, and started choreographing and teaching at the age of fourteen. Autumn has competed in both dance and cheerleading, and pursued hip-hop and gymnastics into adulthood, privileged to have been a member of several national championship teams. She completed her B.S. in Accounting from the University of Alabama in 2000. Twelve years ago, Autumn began her most important role in the dance world as a parent of a multiple title winning dancer, and this only expanded her affinity for all genres of dance. Her experience as a dance student, instructor, choreographer, and parent has developed not only an understanding of the dancer’s mind, but also of the expectations of the dance consumer. It is her objective at Birmingham Academy of Dance to provide top-notch instruction, impeccable customer service, and an all around enjoyable and unforgettable dance experience that will be cherished by both student and family.
