Meet the Directors

Blair Stuka

Blair Stuka was only 5 years old when she was introduced to Hip Hop at Good News Dance Co. in Murrieta, CA. As a child she competed with "Light Vibe", a Hip Hop crew in Sedona, AZ under the direction of Eric Aglia. In high school she was on RBV's varsity dance team, "Maroon Magic" and was inspired to excel in other styles of dance besides Hip Hop. She then trained and competed in jazz, lyrical, ballet, pointe, and contemporary at Shadowridge Dance Center. In her senior year of high school Blair choreographed and competed her contemporary solo, which won several choreography awards. Blair was only 16 when she started teaching dance at a few elementary schools as her first job. She fell in love right away and knew she was meant to teach! Blair always considers herself a student and continues to train at various studios in LA and San Diego. Blair had the privilege to dance for Keone and Mari's first ever dance book, "Ruth". Blair is currently a "Fembot" on Super Galactic Beat Manipulators (SGBM) based in San Diego, which is a part of Fam Royale (Jabbawockeez, SGBM, P.R.E.S.S. P.L.A.Y., Boogie Monstarz).
