Chris Collins Dance Studio

Office Staff

These are the people who make the business side of our studio run efficiently. They are the first voices on the phone and the first staffers you are likely to see when entering our studio. While it can be difficult to catch a teacher between classes, our front office staff is there to answer your questions and to serve you.


Vickie Collins

Miss Vickie has been married to Mr. Chris for over fifteen years. She has been with the studio in one capacity or another for 25 years. Her children grew up dancing at Chris Collins Dance Studio capturing many title awards. She is now proud to watch her grandchildren grow up in the Chris Collins Dance Studio family. Miss Vickie is the person who makes the studio feel like a second home to our students. In fact, it was she who designed our studio and made it so inviting.

In addition to working with parents and students in the office, she also takes care of dancewear, costume measurements, costume orders, and embellishes costumes. Miss Vickie dedicates so much more behind the scenes to make everyone at Chris Collins Dance Studio sparkle!
