Owner / Instructor
Hi, I’m Naomi Lueders. I am the owner and head instructor at the Main Pointe School of Dance. I have worked with the Main Pointe since September of 2017 and took ownership of the studio in the summer of 2016. Dance has always been a true passion of mine ever since I put on my first pair of dance shoes. I started my dance training through Just for Kix when I was 8 years old and instantly fell in love. Once I was old enough I tried out for the Cardette Dance Team and danced with them on their starting Varsity Team all four years of high school. My senior year of high school I took on the position of captain of the Cardette team. Once I graduated high school I went off to college and found a deeper love and appreciation for dance. I auditioned for the dance program through the college and began my studio training. I had many unbelievable dance opportunities during my college career. One of which, I was chosen by the Shapiro & Smith dance company (based out of Minneapolis) to perform one of their company pieces ‘To Have and to Hold.’ In 2015 I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a minor in Dance. After graduating, I came back home and was given the incredible opportunity by Amanda McCain (the previous studio owner) to help teach alongside her at the studio. The following year, she gave me the opportunity to take it over and of course I said yes. Teaching dance and sharing my passion for it has always been a dream of mine. I’m so incredibly lucky to do something that I love each and every day.
InstructorHi, I’m Amanda McCain. I was one of the previous studio owners of the Main Pointe. I am currently still teaching a few of the classes through the studio, however, I am only able to do one evening a week. I have taught at the studio since its founding in 1998. I started dancing with Main Pointe before it was even branded as Main Pointe. I started at the studio when the studios name was Kicks Unlimited. This was where I started my dance training. During college I had to opportunity to dance with the Minnesota Dance Ensemble, a modern and jazz company based out of St. Cloud. I’ve also had the opportunity to teach at multiple different dance studios throughout Minnesota. Currently I live in the Spicer area with my husband and two sons.
