About The Hive

Welcome to The Hive! We are so happy for you to BEE here!

We place great emphasis on proper technique, body placement, and control while preparing dancers to perform. We allow all dancers the opportunity to BEE their best and help them to try new things without the stress of a perfect standard. We are dedicated to teaching dancers in a safe, encouraging, and professional environment, and aim to instill a love of learning the art of dance. 


The lessons we learn at The Hive Academy of Dance will extend beyond just our studio space, and will help prepare your dancer in dedication, willingness, and compassion throughout their lives. 



Lyn Blanton

Mrs. Lyn Blanton grew up just north of Atlanta, GA. She began dancing at the age of three, immediately fell in love with it, and has been dancing for over 30 years! At age 12, Lyn was given her first dance class to teach, and she quickly realized her passion in life was to teach others the art, respect, and love of dance. She has a strong desire for sharing her knowledge and passion with her students.

Lyn earned a B.S. in Education from Shorter College in Rome, GA, and worked as a public school teacher in grades K-5. Because of her extensive knowledge and understanding of the process of teaching, and her many, many hours spent in the classroom, she is able to quickly differentiate and assess students needs and provide clear and easily understood instruction. She is currently in the process of earning her Certificate in Dance Education through the National Dance Education Organization(NDEO). Lyn has been teaching dance for over 20 years. She specializes in teaching ballet, pointe, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, tap, and hip hop, and has worked in classrooms with dancers ages two-60.

During her youth and college career, Lyn proudly danced with many companies including the Academy of Dance Arts, Elite Dance Academy, Atlanta Ballet, Wesleyan College, and Shorter College. She was the co-founder and co-captain of the Shorter College Dance Team, and also co-captain of the World Basketball Association Rome Gladiators 'Gladiator Girls' Dance Team.

As much as Lyn enjoys performing, she truly loves inspiring others to tell stories with their movements. She respects and adores the hard work, dedication, devotion, and technique that goes into being a well rounded dancer, and is excited and honored to share her knowledge, time, and experience with all the dancers at The Hive Academy of Dance.

Ms. Lyn's dedication to growth and dance is evident in everything she does. My children all loved dancing with Ms. Lyn at the Hive Academy of Dance. We were sad to move out of state and have been unable to find anything quite as inclusive and special as this program.

Lyn is a knowledgeable and caring dance teacher who puts a lot of thought and fun into her classes! The Hive Academy of Dance is also affordable and doesn’t charge extra or unnecessary fees.

Lyn is a fantastic dance teacher! Her classes are fun and engaging and my kids built a solid dance foundation through her instruction. Lyn always had the dancer's best interests at heart and always met them where they were. I definitely recommend classes with The Hive and I'm sad that we had to move away from her studio! 

Excellent dance studio with a caring teacher.

Our first year at The Hive was wonderful! My daughter learned proper technique and had fun a lot of fun at each class! I was highly impressed with the end of year recital which showcased all the skills the dancers had learned throughout the year and also the enormous amount of thought Lyn put into the choreography and presentation.
