Meet Our STAFF

 Jolene and Glen Mollerick are the proud directors of Stars Studio. Affectionately known as Mama Jojo and Papa Glen, the couple has three daughters (Miss Hannah, Miss Sarah and Miss Alanah) who are instructors and choreographers at the dance studio. It was their daughter's passion for dance and teaching that led them to open Stars Studio in 2008.

They modeled their studio after La Maison de la Danse, a dance company that was owned by their former trainer Miss Ronnie. Miss Ronnie operated the business for over 40 years. Like the Mollerick's, she has taught several students, including many of our instructors.

Opening Stars Studio, it was imperative to the Mollerick's  to offer a learning environment with a community feel...many dancers consider Stars Studio their "second home"! We specialize in (and currently offer) tap, jazz, pointe, and ballet classes to both creational and pre-professional dancers. As the studio gained more notoriety, they added hip-hop, poms, lyrical, contemporary, ballet technique, leaps and turns, toning and stretch classes to their list of courses. Whether the goal is to dance recreationally and perform in our annual recital, or to dance pre-professional/competitively, we are honored to help your dancer's reach their potential!


A Growing Family

The theme of "family" is held with the utmost importance to the Mollerick's. They have three beautiful daughters who began dancing at a young age. The trio now teaches and choreographs routines at the studio. They also have a wonderful staff of instructors, assistants, and front office support members who regard each other as family.

Their innovative approach to dance classes, coupled with their annual recital keeps winning the hearts of theircustomers. Due to the kind referrals of their patrons, their business grows yearly. In April 2015, they were thrilled to meet this demand by opening our fourth studio, expanding our existing space from 4,200 sq. ft. to 6,500 sq. ft.
