Suzy Goodin- Instructor
Suzy has been dancing at Becky's since 1990 when she enrolled as a 2nd grader. She began teaching in 1999 and loves to share her passion for dance with her students.
In addition to teaching at Becky's, she has taught dance at a variety of local schools through Community Ed and spent a season coaching MSHSL Dance Team at Cromwell High School. She has trained with many great instructors including Mario Velez, Jr., Sarah Jo Fazio, Jo Rowen, Kirby Reed and Brian Santora.
In 2004, Suzy developed the Competition Team. This team travels both locally and nationally to competitions and performances nation-wide. This team has continued to grow and progress into 4 separate groups throughout the years. Suzy devotes much of her time to these competitive groups. She also teaches regular classes, strength & flex, pointe and the beginner/intermediate adult class.
When she is not dancing (which is not often!), you can find her spending time with her husband, Luc (who also doubles as our DJ, prop guy, medic- you name it!), and daughter, Kieriahna. Her and her husband are also owners of Goodin Graphic Design and Photography and specialize in graduation, family and wedding photography.

Favorite Restaurant- Warming House (has all my favorite foods in one place!) or Chinese food.
Vanessa Linder- Instructor
Vanessa began dancing at Becky’s in 1992, to date she has earned herself 17 years worth of trophies! She began her dancing career having Miss Becky as her first dance teacher, and from the first class dance became her new love and passion. She became a student assistant in 2002 and an instructor in 2003. Her favorite types of dance are jazz, tap and hip hop. Vanessa was also a member of the Cloquet Dance Team all throughout high school. Vanessa has taken jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical, pointe and some hip hop not only from Becky’s, but from summer camps as well. She has had classes with instructors such as Terry Lilly, Sarah Jo Fazio, Mario Velez Jr., Brian Santora and Kirby Reed. Vanessa has competed at various competitions and is co-coaching the Cloquet High School's Winter Dance Team!
Vanessa began coaching the Performance Team in 2009, to offer students the opportunity to share their love of dance with those in the community. The Performance Team now includes 3 separate groups. She truly is amazed at the great impact performing does for the girls, “Not only are they developing connections with other girls who have the same passion, but they are sharing this passion with the community and nothing could be better than that”. She also teaches many of our regular preschool classes.
When Vanessa is not dancing, she is a student at the College of Saint Scholastica, pursuing a degree in social work or working at Perkins where she is a server. She also enjoys spending time with her nephews, niece and family, shopping, watching movies and spending time with friends.
