Miss Cortni is no stranger to the stage. As one of ADC’s strongest and most loved dancers and company members, Cortni transitioned from student, to assistant, to instructor/choreographer effortlessly. Originally from Florida, Miss Cortni has been all over the U.S living in Phoenix, Miami, Oklahoma City, before finally finding her true home in Tyler. Cortni trained at various studios along the way, as well as performing and having wonderful opportunities to perform with the Miami City Ballet for 3 years. Because of all this, she brings with her a diverse background and wide range of knowledge. Miss Cortni has spent the past 8 years training at ADC, and the past 5 assisting and apprenticing under owner Bonnie Hotman Pehl. Bonnie saw sparks early on with Cortni and has spent several years nurturing and cultivating Miss Cortni to become not only a phenomenal instructor, but a premier, up and coming choreographer. Her attention to detail, musicality, and unique groove give Cortni an edge over most in the industry. While dance is her heart, soul, and passion, Cortni is also extremely talented at signing. God gave Cortni the sweetest personality that just draws little ones to her as if she were Snow White. ADC is so excited for Miss Cortni to begin her 9th year with us and even more excited to see the amazing things she will do this year!
