Assistant Studio Director/Clogging Teacher
Hi I’m Saydee Halterman! I was born and raised dancing! My mom had me in the studio ever since I can remember. My favorite styles of dance are contemporary and clogging. I danced for Sunshine Dance and Color Country Cloggers all growing up and in high school danced on the drill team and was dance sterling scholar. I started teaching in high school and have loved every second of it since then. One of my favorite things is dancing and competing with my little sister. In my free time I love hiking, biking, playing with my dogs, working on my house and spending time with my cute husband.

I have been dancing for 16 years training in ballet, lyrical, jazz, hip hop, etc. I danced at sunshine dance and was on the cedar high drill team. I also clogged with the color country cloggers for 6 years. I have competed in many team competitions, solo competitions, and conventions throughout my dance career. I love to dance, travel, be outside, and hang out with my family.

My name is Brentlee Mineer! I absolutely love to dance. I have been dancing as long as I can remember. I do any kind including clogging, pointe, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop. I am 16 years old and am going to be a junior in high school. I love my high school sports which include soccer, cheer, and track. I love sharing my passion for dance by teaching others and I have wanted to become a dance teacher ever since I started dance at the early age of 2. I have been dancing with Sunshine Dance and Color Country Cloggers from the start and it has been incredible to watch them grow and improve. I can’t wait to teach your kids this year! It’s going to be great
Hi! I’m Ellie Hale!
My passion for dance started at the early age of 3. I was on the edge of my seat watching the Nutcracker!
For 15 years my Saturdays were spent growing me as a dancer
at the Esther Moody Ballet Co in WI.
I also found the joy of teaching younger ballerinas when I was a teen. Now, in my 40’s, I’m back at it again, and loving it! I’ve been at Sunshine Dance since January 2020 and excited for what this year brings! I love kids! It’s probably why I have 5 of my own!
I met and married the cowboy of my dreams 17 years ago, who, with a little persuading will swing me around the kitchen dance floor! On days when we’re tired of the homeschool routine, the kids and I can be found taking a much needed break = DANCE PARTY!
