AcroTex Dance Staff

Ivy PictureIvy Mounsey Dance Director  My name is Ivy Mounsey, and I began dancing through cheerleading in high school. Upon graduation I attended Stephen F Austin State University and studied ballet. I transferred to the University of Houston and went into their musical theater dance program. From there I began studying with Camille Long Hill. Soon afterward I started training with Suzanne Banbury at the Banbury School of Dance in Houston, Texas. I began teaching for Mrs. Banbury and remained on her staff until 2002 when I moved to Prescott, Arizona. In Arizona joined the Academy of Performing Arts teaching staff and worked there until the fall of 2004 when I moved back to Texas. Since then I have been teaching in the central Texas area and started the dance program at AcroTex. I enjoy working with all ages and have taught beginners through professional level ranging in age from three to 82. Having performed in numerous shows and several companies, I bring years of training in ballet, tap, jazz, and choreography to my job of teaching future dancers and actors. My students have gone on to be accepted to summer dance intensives, university dance programs, regional theater, Houston Ballet’s Ben Stevenson Academy and Ballet Austin’s The Academy. For many years I have choreographed and co-choreographed musical theater dance camps. I have also choreographed full length versions of Annie, Wizard of Oz, Oliver, and Fiddler on the Roof. I have been the resident choreographer for two show choirs. I love teaching and have a very hands-on, down-to-earth style.
