Zimone is also Co-Director of the SDA Competition Team and just finished her third stint as a Long Term Dance sub for DD2.
Ms. Mincey is one of the most innovative choreographers & motivational teachers in the low country area. All my child would talk about is how much she enjoyed Ms. Mincey's class. She is one of the hardest working teachers I've ever met and I think she should be hired full time for DD2 district.
