Cidneah Gums - Instructor

Cidneah started taking dance classes at 3 years old in Oakland, California. Because she showed such passion for dance her parents took her back and forth from Sacramento to Oakland for practices and performances. She later would start taking classes of different genres in Sacramento as well. As a teen, Cidneah not only started her high school dance program but also choreographed dances along with her co-captain for all performances. After high school,  Cidneah started working with children at an after school program and later interned at a local Sacramento dance studio assisting with preschool hip hop classes. It was then that she realized that she had a passion for teaching the art form. Now, being a parent, Cidneah has realized just how much physical activities can make a positive impact in a child’s health and create an opportunity for children to further develop their motor skills, social skills and coordination.
