The 24-year old dancer, mother, choreographer, wife, and teacher, Delisa Johnson, was born in Miami, Florida. Since moving to the Houston area, she has used her environment as an opportunity to be fully involved in the city’s art and performance culture. Delisa recently performed the age-old ballet classic, The Nutcracker, with her students from the Sugarland Dance Center. Seeing it as an opportunity to help others grow, she has enjoyed teaching dance since the age of sixteen.

“I loved being able to teach younger students how to move and be part of the reason why they became great dancers,” she said. “I love the fact that I helped them grow not only as a dancer but as a person.”
