  My name is Miss Hansmeier and I will be your child’s dance teacher for this school year.  I am so excited to be at Roosevelt entering my sixth year of teaching here.  Originally I am from Jacksonville, IL and have moved to Peoria District 150 so that I could teach a subject I am very passionate about. Dance has been a part of my life for the past 22 years! I have taught students of all ages in a private dance studio and in the classroom setting.

  I look forward to this school year and to be able to spend time teaching the primary grade levels again. It will be a big change for us this year as we move to seeing each other multiple times a week for some classes and once a week for others! Regardless I am sure we can make every class tons of fun and a great learning experience! 

  In dance class we will focus on different genres of dance as well as spatial awareness and elements of dance that related to time, speed, body movement, and more. I will be documenting your students’ progress through the blog that will be on our dance website. You can find that website by going to the RMS webpage and then to the tab Programs. Click on the Dance and Movement title and our page will appear! We will be performing throughout the year and when those performances arise I will send home letters notifying you as parents. I look forward to being able to keep you p to date on your child’s progress this year and all that we are learning.
