Susie Bainbridge

Dance Instructor

Susanna Michelle Bainbridge was born and raised in Liberty, NC. She has 3 older siblings, David Jr., Julia, and Josh, and 4 younger siblings, Sam, Becca, Rachel, and Abby. She was homeschooled at Ten Oaks Christian Academy. Susie has danced at AFAA since she was 4 years old (with a 2 year break), so a total of 13 years! She has taken classes in ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, and, her favorite, liturgical. One of her favorite opportunities at AFAA has been being part of Rejoice! dance ministry for the past 5 years. She has had a variety of roles through the years in ballet productions including “Jennifer” in The Best Loved Doll, “Good Queen” in Snow White, and “Aurora” in Sleeping Beauty. When Susie is not at AFAA, she spends time as a caregiver for the elderly (including her Papaw for a couple of years), and for the last 2+ years, as a nanny for 2 sweet little boys. She also loves organizing, helping out around the house, and finding ways to see her new nephew, baby Jake! Susie is excited to be able to continue her time with AFAA, now as a Dance Instructor!
