Meet our Instructors



Classically trained in the areas of Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Modern, Suaundra began dancing as soon as she was able to walk. She comes from a great legacy of performing arts, beginning with her grandfather, Eugene “Pineapple” Jackson, a pioneer African American actor and entertainer. Her mother, Sue Black, is well known in the community as Director/Owner of Sue B. Dance Company, Inc.

After attending Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, Suaundra went on to graduate from Arizona State University and then served as Artistic Director and Director of Sue B. Dance Company. In addition to countless performance credits, she has created award winning choreography and directed numerous stage productions. 

Suaundra is currently Director of OnStage Workshop, a performance and outreach program serving residents in under served communities. OnStage Workshop has worked with Los Angeles Job Corps, the Down Syndrome Association of Los Angeles ( and Blair High School’s Ovations.
As both an instructor and “dance mom”, Suaundra’s goal is to encourage active lifestyles and involvement in the arts, while providing a safe space for children to learn, create and bridge dance with life skills such as self-confidence, discipline, respect and healthy self-expression.
