Maressa Dirks (Owner/Instructor)-  Ballet, Creative Movement, and Toning and Sculpting

Maressa Dirks was born and raised here in Spokane.  She started dancing at age eight.  Since then, it has been her dream to own her own studio.   Maressa’s goal is to provide her students with the opportunity to love to dance.  She wants each student to be able to feel the passion and happiness she feels each time she dances.   She has worked hard for 15 years to make this dream come true.

She received most of her training here in Spokane.  She also went to dance school at Steps on Broadway in New York City.   Maressa has traveled all over the world on cruise ships, which she performed on.  She had to audition for Royal Caribbean to become part of their entertainment.  She has been involved in many types of performing arts throughout her career, including Jazz, Modern dance, Hip Hop, Musical Theater, and Character dance.   Although Maressa has studied many forms of dance and exercises, she specializes in ballet. Maressa graduated from Eastern Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in Business. She graduated from Gonzaga University, earning her Master’s in Business Administration.
