Meet Stone Dance Academy's Instructors
Miss Jadyn Bradham has been dancing since the age of 2! She has been trained in ballet, pointe, jazz, lyrical/contemporary and tap. However, her first love will always be ballet! She was a part of Grace Full Dance Academy Diamond Company and Performance Team since 2017. During this time, she was able to apprentice and assist in classes and find a passion for teaching. She currently is minoring in dance at Seminole State College and plans to continue her studies at the University of Central Florida. Although she enjoyed performing for many years, her heart lies with teaching your children the art of dance and looks forward to seeing them grow both technically and spiritually!
Lauren Phillips is a native Floridian who has been passionate about the art of dance for as long as she can remember. She studied ballet at Orlando Ballet School for 11 years, performing as a soloist in ballets including Swan Lake, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.

She went on to teach creative movement and beginning ballet courses at a small private school before joining Stone Dance Academy, previously Grace Full Dance Academy, where she has been happily teaching for the past three seasons. Lauren lives in Casselberry with her husband and two daughters, both of whom are following in their mother’s footsteps in their love of dance, as students at Stone Dance Academy. She is passionate about laying a strong foundation technically for our students as well as nurturing their love for this amazing art form, all while pointing them back to Jesus!
