Lynnsay has been dancing and loving it all her life! She began ballroom when she was eight, competing in Latin, Smooth and Standard. While learning ballroom she also became proficient in other forms of traditional and modern dance, however her first love has always been ballroom. In high school, Lynnsay was on the BYU Youth formation team, which won three United States formation championships during her time on the team. In college, she was a member of the prestigious BYU formation team, which is the current undefeated United States formation champions. Although Lynnsay has competed at a high level of Latin, Standard and Smooth through the years, her favorite has always been Smooth and in 2014 she won the United States Amateur Smooth Championship.

Lynnsay had long awaited a career in professional Ballroom dancing and in the spring of 2014 that dream came true as she accepted a teaching position at Elite Dance studio and a partnership with Mariusz Zakrewski. Lynnsay and Mariusz have been competing professionally for over a year. In such a short period of time they have won numerous Rising Star Smooth titles, one of them being the prestigious Ohio Star Ball. Through the years Lynnsay has had the privilege of training with some of the top coaches and judges in the industry and she is excited to share her expertise, knowledge and love for dance with you!
