Director, Michelle Davis began taking dance lesson when she was three years old. She participated in a variety of classes in many dance styles at Judy's School of Dance and attended national dance conventions each year. In addition, Michelle took a three year course at Kent State University through the Dance Masters of America, where she became certified to teach. She began teaching dance throughout Eastern Massachusetts at many dance studios, private schools and preschools. In 1999 she opened the Dance Studio of Norwell. Michelle relocated the Dance Studio of Norwell to Hanover in 2015  and opened the studio under it's new name Dance Studio 53 ,  After becoming a mom in 2007, she understands firsthand the importance of teaching children and enjoys it more than ever.


Liz Tronni has been teaching at the studio for fifteen years. In addition to teaching, Liz choreographs musical productions for local High Schools and has been performing and choreographing for Hingham's Cabaret for over twenty years. Her high energy Broadway style Jazz classes are enjoyed by students of all ages.


Christine DeGrasse discovered a passion for dance at an early age. She began taking lessons at a local dance studio at four years old and was a member of the studio’s competition team throughout high school. To further her dance education, she went on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Dance Management and Instruction from Plymouth State University. At PSU, Chris studied Jazz, Tap, Modern and Ballet technique and enjoyed performing with the Contemporary Dance Ensemble and at the American College Dance Festival. She was grateful to be selected for a Dance Talent Grant her senior year. Upon graduation, she began teaching dance at Dance Studio 53 (formerly Dance Studio of Norwell) and loves working with students of all ages, the competition teams and the staff. Chris has performed as a precision dancer in Reagle Music Theater of Waltham’s “Christmas Time” and has been very fortunate to attend the Rockette Summer Intensive in NYC for three years.


Heather Rizzo started doing gymnastics and dancing at the age of four and fell in love with it instantly. She danced at Judy’s School of Dance taking any class offered and even started assisting with classes when she was only ten years old. After a short time away from dance to start a family, Heather was brought back to teaching when she enrolled her own daughter into dance classes. Heathers enthusiasm creates a positive environment for students to progress making her a perfect fit as our Acrobatics and Hip-Hop teacher.
