Owner and Director of Next Level Dance, Angel Goines introduced and established her dance program in 2017 to the La Porte and surrounding communities. As a native of the city of La Porte, Angel began her dance training at the young age of four where her passion for the art began. She learned from various local studios, trained and performed on the Chato Drill Team at La Porte High School, and then learned a wider range of dance at San Jacinto Community College and Lamar University. Angel graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance at Lamar where she focused her dance training and education in the dance department, and danced on the Lamar Dance Team. Throughout Angel’s dance education she worked under various instructors and professors as well as attended several outside intensives including American College Dance Festival, Regional Dance of America, Dance Masters of America, New Grounds Festival, White Mountain Summer Dance Festival and other small workshops. Her training includes Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary/Lyrical, Hip Hop, Acrobatics, and Social Dance. After opening Next Level Dance in La Porte, the program had tremendous and rapid growth which allowed for an amazing staff of instructors and now it’s biggest dance studio location.
Miss Whitney Goines, Co-Owner of Next Level Dance, is no stranger to the arts. She has been a musician for the better part of her life, and strives to help the community of artists achieve their goals whether it be dance, music or theater. Her skillset of an administration professional for many years is being put into play in the background of NLD.
Danielle is 33 years old and has been an Next Level Dance parent & employee since 2017. Cheerleading is the stem of her interest in the creative arts, as she was a Varsity Cheerleader and Social Officer for 5 years. She expanded her interest in the arts by taking dance classes at school and in college. Childcare is also apart of Miss Danielle’s background. She worked as a daycare teacher where she learned to provide a positive environment for children to learn and grow.
Danielle is dedicated, hard working and optimistic. Since the start of Next Level Dance, 2017, Danielle assisted and trained to teach the younger Ballet, Jazz and Acro classes, under Angel Goines. Since 2019, Danielle has officially taught and coordinated our tutwotots, 3-5 yr old ballet, jazz and acro classes. She also assists our daycare and homeschool programs with Miss Angel.
