Lilly Deal is a sophomore at Carson-Newman University, where she is majoring in theatre and minoring in art. Lilly began dancing at 11, and was trained in ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, contemporary, and lyrical from both the Tennessee Conservatory of Fine Arts and Studio Arts for Dancers.
When she’s not dancing, Lilly is an avid bookworm and artist, and can spend hours sketching or reading. She would always prefer to be outdoors hiking and exploring, unless she can go to a museum or ride some rollercoasters.
I am a firm believer that everyone is a creative. Everyone has talents and abilities to express themselves through the arts or other areas, and I want to encourage creative expression in my students. Dance was one of my constant joys during some difficult times in my life, and I want to give back and help facilitate that safe and joyous space for other dancers. I’m excited to be at Fuzion because the heart and character behind creativity matters just as much, if not more, than the technique. I can’t wait to see how God uses this school, through both the teachers and the students!
