IDC Instructor Gabi Hamlin begins her fourth season teaching for the IDC.  This season, Gabi will be teaching Creative Dance, Pre-Ballet, Pre-Tap, Dance Team I, and Beginning Jazz/Contemporary. Her classes combine technical training with creative studies, making her an engaging and popular IDC instructor. Her favorite thing about teaching is creating a fun and educational environment where students can learn to love dance.

Gabi “grew up” dancing as a student at the Inspiration Dance Company from age 3 – 17, training in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary, Partnering and Hip Hop. She is currently in her third year of study, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in dance at Western Oregon University.  While at WOU, Gabi has performed in works by Anjali Austin and as a guest performer with Rainbow Dance Theatre.
