Olivia Gerns is a Professional Musician and Dancer from Westlake Village, CA, with Bachelor’s Degrees in Music Performance and Education from Chapman University.
Olivia’s love for tap dance comes from her love for music and creating rhythms with all instruments, including her feet! Ms. Gerns is an accomplished instrumentalist and Singer/Songwriter, and her philosophy is to include musicality and music theory in her tap teaching.
Olivia has trained and worked closely with mentors and colleagues Darryl Retter, Thommie Retter, Valerie Rockey, Sarah Reich, and Leo Manzari. As a passionate educator, Miss Olivia is proud and excited for the opportunity to work with the dancers at Dance for Kids this coming season!
