Our Teachers



Lynda Davis

Hello! My name is Lynda and I’ve been the owner and director of New Bremen Dance School for 29 years. My dance training (ballet) began at a young age and I continued to dance throughout high school as well as compete on two different gymnastic teams. I started a small dance/tumbling business in my parent’s basement after graduating from high school. In college, I was a member of The Vahalla Ballroom Dance Competition Team at Ricks College (currently BYU Idaho) where I also furthered my ballet dance education.
