Chase Benz

October 10th, 2023

Originally from the heart of Nashville, Chase Benz is a multi-talented artist and educator. A teacher, choreographer, stage director, and producer with a deep passion for live entertainment and dance. His training and dance career started at the ripe age of 7 and has pursued it
fervently ever since.
He has a wealth of teaching experience that extends across international conventions and various dance schools.
His choreography and directing credits include supervising the electropop, dance-pop numbers in the Britney Spears Piece of Me Las Vegas Residency, the Britney Spears Circus and Femme Fatale world tours, Backstreet Boys Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency, Latin Music Sensation J Balvin’s Energia and La Familia tours, Sebastian Yatra Dharma Tour, Florida Georgia Line Smooth Tour, Rihanna Last Girl on Earth tour, Donna Summers 2008 World Tour, Kim Petras Broken Tour, the So You Think You Can Dance Tour, Billboard Music Awards, Norwegian Cruise Lines and the 2016 Apple Music Festival.

As a dancer, Benz toured with Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera, and appeared in the motion picture productions Stomp the Yard, Hannah Montana, Step Up 2: The Streets and Apple TV’s upcoming film, Wolves Staring Brad Pitt and George Clooney.

Most recently, Chase lent his artistic vision to Fox Network’s drama series, “Monarch,” starring the incomparable Susan Sarandon.

Chase’s signature style blends the rhythmic beats of hip-hop, the soulful groove of funk, and the captivating power of performance. But his mission goes beyond the dance floor. He’s committed to preparing aspiring artists for the realities of the industry, aiming to bridge the gap between the classroom and the stage. His greatest hope is that every student walks away from his class not just as better movers but as entertainers who believe in themselves and know how to have fun while doing it.

Jackie Sleight

October 25th, 2022

Jackie Sleight is fearless. Her dedication to education in the dance industry has been endless. Dance Magazine quoted Jackie as being “the teachers’ teacher,” and she has received numerous awards honoring her commitment to the industry. She spent years choreographing and directing film, television, commercials, and live performances, all while training some of the biggest names in the industry.

Her work with young people in competition goes unchallenged. Her teen dancers, A Sleight Touch, won the Star Search Teen Championship, and her group, Boys Club went on to win $100,000 as the Star Search Dance Champions. Those two young groups have been touted as being part of 80’s pop culture.

Jackie became active in the fitness industry just as aerobics was taking off. She was featured in several magazines including New Body and Fit where critics raved about her revolutionary fitness program, Freedance. She soon became staff choreographer for the National Aerobic Championships. The fitness sensation eventually took Jackie to Miami where she wrote and published an exercise manual and system which was used by health clubs all over the country. She worked to help usher in what was to become the industry’s hottest craze, “low-impact” aerobics.

Still after a remarkable career, Jackie will say that her greatest blessings are sons Joshua and Aaron.

Sienna Lyons

October 24th, 2022

Sienna Lyons was born and raised outside of Seattle Washington where she began her dance training at the age of 3 years old. While training at dance studio Elizabeth’s Dance Dimensions staring at the age of 12, she quickly realized dance was her deepest passion.

Lyons began teaching at the age of 16 once her dance teacher saw her love to create.

Sienna made the life changing decision to move to Los Angeles at 18 years old to begin her dance career. She has danced for artists such as JLo, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Pharrell, Janell Monae, Jennifer Hudson and TV shows such as America’s Got Talent, Glee, Billboard Music Awards, Grammys, Real Husbands of Hollywood and many more.

Soon after making the big move, the creative side became second nature to Sienna as she began to work as assistant choreographer under some of the most highly acclaimed choreographers in the industry. It was during these experiences and opportunities she realized she had what it takes to become a choreographer herself. She has choreographed on TV shows such as American Song Contest,The Masked Singer, The Jimmy Kimmel Show and for artists such as Gwen Stefani, Selena Gomez and Sebastian Yatra. Sienna is currently the head choreographer of the Kidz Bop brand.

Being that Sienna is trained in many different dance styles, she is able to adapt to whatever is thrown in her direction from classical styles to today’s commercial style. Sienna is always up for the challenge and is committed to creating epic work!
