Louisa Adams is originally from Plano, Texas where she began attending dance classes at Chamberlain School of Ballet. She became a member of their Ballet and Musical Theatre Pre-professional Senior Companies for four years. She is trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Musical Theatre Dance. She is also a musical theater and classically trained singer.
Louisa took part of Chamberlain’s annual productions of The Nutcracker for over 10 years and has performed in productions of Thoroughly Modern Millie, West Side Story, Footloose, Copacabana, Newsies, Oliver, The Music Man, and has choreographed productions of Side Show, The Drowsy Chaperone, West Side Story and Chicago.
She has earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Acting with a minor in Directing from Oklahoma City University where she was the Artistic Director of the Out of the Box program, a student run theatre company. She has also written, choreographed and directed her own original movement piece, Collision. Since moving to Los Angeles, she has worked as a choreographer and assistant choreographer in several musicals, and has been cast in multiple lead dancing roles.
Louisa’s expertise as a teacher provides students with the skills to pull together emotion and the techniques of a dance, while having a great time! She loves to incorporate acting and dance together so that it becomes one complete experience. And if there’s some singing involved too, then it’s even better! Louisa is very excited to work with the talented students at California DanceArts and is interested in developing a student musical theater performing troupe that will add to the schools list of performing choices.
