Theresa started dancing at the age of 3. As a young girl, she danced all throughout elementary school and performed in various dance recitals. When she was 12 years old she began ballet training with Lisa Murray. Theresa continued her education at Catch the Vision Performing Arts studio in La Habra, California, where she later taught for 13 years.
In 2003, Theresa became the Elementary Director of Dance for Catch the Vision where she greatly enjoyed teaching and directing dance performances. Theresa became the co-owner of CTV Kid Dance in 2006. She managed a team of dance instructors that taught at pre-schools and elementary schools. Theresa loves the art of dance but her greatest love is for the Lord Jesus. It is her desire to use the gifting and passion that the Lord has given her for His glory. She loves to worship the Lord through her dance and desires to help others mature in their dancing as well.
Mindy Ramirez has been dancing over 21 years. She began her training with Lois Ellyn of the New York City Ballet, and went on to graduate from the OCHSA Classical Contemporary Dance Department under the direction of Sophie Monat. She attended summer intensives at San Francisco Ballet, Ballet Pacifica and Ballet Austin and has trained under Luis Fuente, Janek Schergen, David Wilcox, and Michelle Martin. She has performed in The Glory of Christmas at The Crystal Cathedral and danced with the Los Angeles Classical Ballet, The Joffrey Ballet, and Nouveau Chamber Ballet. In recent years, Mindy has discovered a passion to not only be on the stage, but behind the scenes teaching, directing and choreographing. The Cornerstone has offered her the opportunity to dance and choreograph for many events in their Dance Company; and she has found that her joy is made complete in using her passion for dance as an offering of worship to her Savior.
