 Justine continues her love for teaching Ballroom and Latin Dancing that she began in 1987 in NYC @ Arthur Murray Dance Studio.   After years of being a nationally ranked competitive Ballroom Dancer with Mr. David Rosario and  being a certified instructor with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance, Justine is able to specialize in all levels and styles of social dancing with an accent on technique and style.   Justine has made her art of teaching fun, realistic and accessible for all.  Justine’s Grandparents Buddy & Betty were one of Arthur Murray Dance Studios early franchisees in  1954 and the history that lives in her heart is infectious and apparent in her teaching.   Enjoy a warm and welcoming environment in the studio that is clearly felt the moment you step into the studio located in the heart of Doylestown.

Assistant Youth Event Coordinator

Mia Dean

Mia has 8 years of experience with a diverse background of dance styles.  She is a fun , responsible young lady who loves working with kids of all ages.   Mia molds with all crowds, has a terrific sense of leadership and gently asserts herself as a teacher with a great balance of skill and enthusiasm.  


Stretch & Gentle Yoga Instructor

Terri Huskin

Terri came to  the practice of yoga in 2003, as a way to restore a young dancer’s flexibility to her more mature body. The practice quickly became more than just exercise. In 2013, Terri completed   a 200-hour teacher certification  and is currently working on a 500-hour cert program under the guidance of Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny at DIG Yoga in Lambertville, New Jersey. 


Terri's classes are alignment-based and heart-centered; students should come prepared to laugh, take the body and mind to new places, and leave with a sense of being part of a larger community that is calming and restorative.


Where ballet and jazz were passions in Terri’s early life, her love of dance was reignited when she found the Justine TIme to Dance Community, where she is committed to the study of both ballroom and Latin with her husband, Bill. Her understanding of dance and the need to stretch and strengthen the body as we mature, matched with her extensive training, make her a terrific addition to our specialty teaching team.
