Meet Our Instructors
Maija is the owner and instructor of On Pointe Dance Company. While growing up in Blue Earth, she participated in both dance and gymnastics for 15 years. She then went on to teach dance for 2 years and gymnastics for 3 years. She took a step back from both when she went to college at South Dakota State University. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Agronomy and a minor in pest management and ag business, she moved back home for a job opportunity with CFS. She got married and later took on a new role when she became a mom to her son, Henry. Her love for children, and her passion for dance, fueled her to open her own studio. She cannot wait to get started furthering her student's dance education and making wonderful memories.
Kayla was born and raised in Blue Earth. Growing up, she spent most of her time in the dance studio and gymnastics center doing the two things she loved most. After 11 years of dance, 13 years of gymnastics, and 8 years of coaching, she decided to take a break from both to pursue a degree in Early Childhood-Middle Childhood Education in La Crosse, Wisconsin. After graduating from college, she spent two years teaching first grade in La Crosse. After her 6 years in Wisconsin, she decided to move back home to Blue Earth where she will be teaching at the Granada Huntley East Chain Elementary School. She is excited to be back home and reconnect with familiar faces and get to know the new ones while also sharing her passion for dance.
