The History of Creations Dance Studio
Sheryl Huggins was 9th out of 10 children. Growing up in the 60’s in a single income, 10 child family, she didn’t even ask for dance lessons until all of her older siblings were out of the house. Then, she thought, just maybe her parents could finally afford it.
At the age of 12, she took her first dance lesson and immediately fell in love. Through years of homemade costumes and driving 3 hours to get wholesale costumes, she observed just how expensive dance was. She started teaching at 15 to help offset the cost. She spent every single day at the studio where she was employed for over twenty years. This is also where her daughter, Shannon, danced for the first 15 years of her life.
Shannon started competing at the age of 9, and also fell deeply in love with not only dance, but the world of dance competition. Sheryl then moved on to become the Dance Director at Eastside Centre in East Peoria for 15 years, where she and Shannon started several competition dance teams of their own.
Finally, Sheryl and her daughter, Shannon, opened their own dance and tumbling studio. Creations Dance Studio was born!
