Liv Ice grew up training under Maryen Lorraine Miller and Abby Lee Miller from the TV show Dance Moms. She quickly began competing and traveling the country with the Abby Lee Dance Company, eventually becoming a permanent faculty member and choreographer. Liv teaches at five dance studios up and down the east coast. While she loves all styles of dance, her passion for musical theatre and tap grew after obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre at James Madison University. She performed at the Disney World Theatre in Orlando’s theme park, was a featured dancer in the 2013 Jazz Dance World Congress (placing in the top five) and was hand picked by Broadway’s own Ben Vereen to be a featured dancer in his Broadway Theatre Project production, Journey to the Footlights. She has worked at many regional theaters on the East coast. Some of her favorite credits include playing Molly McGuire in the new musical Divided, directed and choreographed by Broadway Dance Center’s Jim Cooney and Leslie/ dance captain of American Idiot, directed and choreographed by Broadway star, Nancy Anderson. Most recently she has gone back to her roots and has guest choreographed for the TV show Dance Moms.
