Michael and Susan Jaskelewicz both started small, attending dance schools in suburban Pennsylvania. But it wasn't long before they ascended to much greater roles in the world of dance. Michael trained under Trinette Singleton, former ballet mistress for the Joffrey Ballet, while he earned a degree in marketing and dance. Susan performed in various college groups—in 2012, she even took the field as a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader. At Synergy Dance Center, they help kids climb from novice to expert dancer during classes spanning dance styles such as jazz, hip-hop, ballet, and lyrical.
