ZYRIA GUILLORY  "Zy" has received her dance training at Hamilton Academy of the Arts in Lafayette, LA where she graduated as a 10 year company member. She is a sophomore at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards her degree in Business Management. She has received scholarships to Broadway Dance Center and Pulse On Tour's Summer Intensive while taking classes under professional choreographers like Brian Friedman, Chas Buzan, Dave Scott, Laurianne Gibson, Ian Eastwood, Kaelynn Harris, Sean Bankhead, and many more. She loves teaching eager students and seeing how her their eyes light up when they achieve a new skill. With her optimistic and strong willed personality, it is clear that Zyria is very passionate in teaching about boosting one's self confidence and finding their purpose in dance. She strongly believes in the the idea of manipulating the mind to believe one can achieve a task and never lets a student go without feeling motivated from her class. She wants to be seen as not only a dance instructor by her students, but a mentor and someone who they can feel comfortable around. She is truly blessed to pursue her career in dance with her new dance family at Dance Project and excited for the new year to come!
