Our Team of Dance Instructors

Edge Dance Academy is home to some of Southern California's most accomplished dance instructors, each of whom brings their own personal approach to the dance floor. See below who they are:

Tabetha Thomas

Artistic Director / Owner

Alixandra Wynn

Alix started dancing at the age of 2 ½, taking her first combo class while still in diapers. She has continued her training throughout the last 20 years in the studio and at conventions gaining inspiration and instruction from her mother, Tabetha Thomas, as well as dancers like Tina Cypher and Allen Cooper. Alix has been on stage since age 4 competing in Tap, Hip Hop, Lyrical, and Contemporary but her favorite is Jazz.

Alix is a two time World Pro-Am Champion in Latin Ballroom. Alix embodies the true spirit of dance which can be seen in the passion she puts into every class she instructs, whether it’s a solo or production. That passion is felt by her students as she teaches them the same joy, happiness, and fulfillment that the art of dance has brought her.
