Olivia Panick

Olivia began her dance journey as a young child in Illinois. Her first genre of dance studied was hip hop. She moved with her family across the country to the Orange County area in 2011 and instantly began taking classes at Center Stage. Olivia danced for 8 years under the direction of Kristi Davar and the many other wonderful instructors. She began her competitive dance career in 2011. She has been on many of the award winning teams at Center Stage such as the Advanced Hip Hop team “Love Lockdown” and the Elite Contemporary Small Group “The Moment I Said it.” After graduating in 2017, Olivia took her dance and performance to new heights. She has been in music videos such as “Promises” by We’re No Gentlemen and “Feel Aright” by ThriftNoise. Olivia went to school for a much different art in 2018. She studied Special FX Makeup at EI School of Professional Makeup in Hollywood. Her style of movement has also landed her a secure spot as an actor for the well-known Halloween attraction Knott’s Scary Farm. She took what she learned from dancing and found where she fit in most with movement. Olivia’s creative story telling and character creation through dance has always been her strongest quality as a dancer and instructor.
