The 517 Story

My passion is to educate and empower dancers to grow as athletes and individuals through the best available training practices and an uplifting environment. 

As a certified athletic trainer with a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology, my thesis research focused on injury prevention in youth ballet dancers. I am passionate about combining the worlds of sports medicine and dance to create a unique, challenging and safe training environment for all of my students. 

Studio 517 was created to allow me to bring my knowledge and talent to the Lansing dance community, and to provide opportunities to mentor other dance instructors along the way.

Classes are available for all levels and ranges of commitment; from the recreational student to the serious pre-professional dancer, in a wide variety of dance styles. 


Our priority is using safe, effective training methods and spotting techniques with focus on fundamental skill progressions to develop a solid technical foundation. 


All classes are taught using the most evidence-based curriculums available and are tailored to the learning styles of each student. 


Routines are choreographed to the strengths of each class, so that all dances showcase the best qualities of every age, style and ability. Routines showcase age-appropriate choreography and costumes to highlight dancers at each level.

”With her background as a certified athletic trainer, Stacey is concerned with her dancers’ physical health, making sure their technique is correct, as well as giving instruction on injury prevention and rehab/recovery. Perhaps most importantly to us, Stacey genuinely cares about her dancers’ mental well being. My daughter considers her to be a trusted mentor.”

”Studio 517 is a place for dancers of all ages. Stacey and the staff will help you achieve your goals. You can take recreational classes that are fun and challenging, or level up and join the competition team to compete against other studios. If you are looking to dance after high school, their training programs will help prepare you for your next step. In the past two years, I have witnessed tremendous growth in many dancers that have trained with Stacey with regard to both their technical skill and self-esteem.”
