Meet Your Teachers

Elle Starzec’s training began at Mrs. Betsy's School of Dance in Franklin, North Carolina. Her training included all types of dance as well as musical theater. As an advanced dancer she was invited to participate in the studios company where she performed in various locations. Because of this benefit she was able to attend many theaters and dance structured workshops, master classes, and intensives all over the United States. She also found, at an early age, not only did she enjoy dance but the theater as well. She has performed in many productions and choreographed many as well. She has also been trained in all areas of the theater from center stage to backstage. A few shows she has choreographed include: “White Christmas;” “Into the Woods;” and “25th annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” Her specialty includes choreography in musical theater and various types of dance all over Georgia, South and North Carolina. She moved to Augusta Georgia in 2011 to attend Augusta University in that same year she began teaching around Augusta as well. As a performance arts director she teaches performance groups, beginner classes to advanced classes. She is also one of the founding teachers of The North Augusta school of Dance.


Hannah Walden has been singing all her life.  Coming from a musical family, she was raised from an early age surrounded by music and rehearsals.  Her performance and choir experience started at the age of 3 and has continued throughout her life.  Hannah began classical choral training at 11, attending Davidson Fine Arts School.  She was an auditioned Georgia Music Educators Association All State Chorus participant for seven years.  She continued her training with several gifted instructors throughout high school and college.  She has been a featured soloist and worship leader at Warren Baptist Church.  Also, she worked as a professional vocalist and actor for The Singing Princesses, a party and events company where she loved using songs to bring a little magic to children’s special occasions.  Hannah has been leading preschool worship for several years and began leading a preschool choir at Warren Baptist in 2018.  She earned a degree in Early Childhood Education and has experience as a classroom teacher.   

Hannah has a passion for singing and loves helping each new singer reach their goals.  Students in her class will learn fundamentals of correct singing that will help them have a solid foundation as future musicians.  She loves working with young students who are interested in growing their vocal abilities and reaching their full potential.  She believes it is very important to teach children to protect their voices and uses exercises and songs to help them sing in a developmentally appropriate way.  Singing exercises your heart and lungs and releases endorphins which make you feel good.  Voice lessons are also a great way to build confidence.  Learning the basics of music theory in voice class will help make students well rounded musicians. 

Hannah is married to her wonderful husband Kevin and they have two budding musicians, Aria and Kaydence.  Hannah loves serving at her church, spending time with her family, and singing along with musicals.  She is excited to be part of growing this new aspect of the arts at North Augusta School of Dance.
