Finding ways to stay artistically inspired as a dance teacher and studio owner can be hard especially when most of the day is spent doing all the things that take away from time to be creative.

In this episode you'll hear from Lizzie Makenzie who has been dancing, teaching, coaching and choreographing in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years. She's the co-founder of Extensions Dance Company and Extensions Dance Center. Lizzie shares tips on how to stay inspired to choreograph recital routines.
