LINDEN, NJ - Barbara Brady was recently chosen as the Dance Teacher of the Year for 2018 for the Eastern District of the United States -- a region stretching from Maine to Maryland. The selection by SHAPE America (Society of Health and Physical Educators) means she is one of six finalists for National Dance Teacher of the Year.

“It’s a mix of emotions: nervous, excited and elated,” Brady said. “I’m so happy to represent New Jersey and the Eastern District. The energy is definitely flowing from so many different emotions on being here again, but mostly proud and excited that they thought so highly of me to put me in that forum again.”
