About miss renee

Miss Renee did not happen upon the dance studio business by accident. In fact, her sister Miss Becky, of Becky Nalevanko's Dance and Tumbling Studio in Des Moines, Iowa, created a prestigious dance and tumbling studio that has been in business and thriving for over 50 years. Renee was raised at Becky’s first as a student and later became an instructor. It is Miss Becky’s studio that became an inspiration for Miss Renee when she became a studio owner after moving to St. Louis in 1991.


For three decades, Renee has cultivated a dance environment that nurtures every dancer and she has built a unique dance network built upon respect and excellence in the dance community, both locally and nationwide. Ask any dance professional from coast to coast, and they will have a story about Miss Renee! Her enthusiasm and love for the arts are unmatched. Miss Renee has kept her studio fresh and current by attending hundreds of dance conventions and competitions, as well as the annual Dance Teacher Summit in New York. She is also a member of the Dance Studio Owners Association. One of Miss Renee's favorite parts of the job is being in the classroom and teaching our young dancers!


Perhaps her greatest achievement is the title of Dance Mom! Miss Renee is the mother of two daughters, which are her pride and joy. The oldest daughter Madison is an Elon University Musical Theatre grad and has performed with Paper Mill Playhouse, The Muny, and toured with Broadway's Hello Dolly national tour. The younger daughter, Sydney, is an alumnus of Texas Christian University and performed with the Nationally recognized TCU Elite Dance Team. She also worked for Adrenaline Dance Convention. Dancing and performing in all aspects run in the family!


Renee Johnson is also the owner of Madison's Dancewear in the Chesterfield Valley.
