HAYWARD (COACH HAY) JOHNSON

HIP HOP INSTRUCTOR

Hayward is a street hip-hop dancer raised in Dallas, TX. For as long as he could walk, he was dancing and performing. Inspired by pop icons like Prince and Michael Jackson, he started teaching himself how to pop, groove, wave, krump, and animate. In high school, he founded his own hip-hop club called, Abstract Motion, which kicked off his love for choreography. In college, he became a leading officer and choreographer for Texas Tech’s first hip-hop dance organization called, “Dancers With Soul: Hip-Hop Team.” With DWS, he performed in TTU men’s and women’s basketball half-time shows, club concerts, community events, and was even the opening act for the famous rapper/hip-hop artist, Wale. Hayward can also be found freestyling in Todrick Hall’s music video, “Haterz” and tv show, “Todrick”. Although performing was his first love, giving back to the community quickly topped it when he started teaching dance at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lubbock, TX. As his passion for teaching grew, he decided to accept the offer to teach and choreograph for Olympic figure skaters at the Dallas Star. Upon returning home, he also revived Abstract Motion in the school that his mother teaches at. He newly created Abstract Motion to be an after school dance program that aims to teach youth about the arts and developing good moral character. Today, Hayward is venturing into the dance studio realm to teach students all around the area the heart and soul of hip-hop dance. He aims to inspire all youth to have fun, break molds, and love the skin they’re in.

Aubrey Seidel

Hip Hop, Tap, Contemporary/Lyrical, Combo Classes, Jazz & Drill Prep Instructor 

Aubrey Seidel possesses a lifelong love for dance. At the age of two, Aubrey began dancing at her local studio and quickly realized her passion for performance. This would lead her to participate in many local theatre events, recitals, and dance competitions throughout her life. In high school, Aubrey was a member of the Flower Mound High School Rosettes Drill Team where she served as a social officer. Her time on drill team allowed her to dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, perform in Los Angeles, and compete in major competitions across the state of Texas. She was also selected for specialized teams within her drill team, including Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Lyrical. As an adult, Aubrey auditioned and was selected for The Texas Legends Dance Team where she got her first taste of being a professional dancer. After that, Aubrey moved on to attend Austin Community College where she trained in modern dance. During this time she also discovered the joy of aerial arts and cabaret style dance through her local studio. 

 

In 2013, Aubrey’s husband’s military orders took them to Alaska where she served as a competitive dance instructor for 3 years. It was in this role that Aubrey discovered her love for teaching. Aubrey’s husband received orders again in 2016 to Georgia where Aubrey served as a competitive instructor for 1 year. In both of these teaching roles, Aubrey’s coaching and choreography was awarded numerous times at competition. However, her proudest accomplishments as an instructor were when she was able to connect with her students, watch them improve over time, and witness their joy and confidence flourish. 

 

Aubrey is now the mother of two precious little girls and the proud wife of a police officer. She considers her family to be her greatest gift in life, and she is grateful for their support in returning to teaching as well as pursuing a bachelor’s degree in education. In addition to dancing, Aubrey loves hiking, eating good food, and making people laugh. She is thrilled to be apart of the Integrity Dance Arts team, and she cannot wait to share her love and knowledge of dance with everyone.
