Whitney Allen

whitne-rallenWhitney started teaching tap dance at Dance West in 2014. She loves being part of the Dance West family and is very excited to be part of The Movement.

As much as she enjoys dancing, preforming and choreographing, Whitney finds the most rewarding part of being a tap dancer is working with her students. She is passionate about teaching and enjoys helping her students become more self-confident; she challenges them to think outside the box and solve problems creatively.

As a third generation tap dancer Whitney Allen could shuffle before she could walk. Whitney trained in a wide range of dance styles at The Dance Factory in Los Alamitos from 1990 through 2008 focusing on tap dance in the later years. She has performed throughout California and she currently continues her tap training at Elevations Studios. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Irvine.
