I worked with Merrideth in Florida on the production “Boca Grande: The Soap” in April, 2004. She is a tremendously funny and versatile performer. She played two entirely different women (one with a Russian accent) flawlessly. She gives of herself and puts others at ease. She is a joy to work with and we hope […]

Nicola Russell (Tap Student, Home Depot)

Merrideth is an amazing teacher- she can manage any group with ease and never loses patience. One remarkable thing about her style is that she can teach to multiple skill levels within the same class, keeping advanced students challenged while taking the time and energy needed for less advanced students. She can also energize, motivate, […]

I took Tap from Merrideth for approximately 1 year. Starting such a challenging dance style in your mid-20s could have been discouraging. Merrideth managed to make it loads of fun for everyone in the class, from the newbies like me to those who had years of experience. It was never dull, it was always a […]

I first met Merrideth working on a crazy show called Marietta: the Soap! I was just getting back into acting after a very long break (20 + years!). Meredith played the lead, and I learned more from working with her and watching her than I’ve learned from almost anyone else I’ve worked with since. She […]

Merrideth Ziesse is, without a doubt, one of those rare talents that only come around once in a blue moon. She is a commanding actress and a fierce dancer. Anyone who studies with her will get only the best training possible. Period.

Laura Dugan (GPC Student)

Merrideth is an excellent teacher who can make even the most reserved introvert (like me) give their absolute best in a performance. She made every class an enjoyable one, and every student excelled because of her dedication, saint-like patience, and bubbly enthusiasm. She also has a ready supply of anecdotes regarding her beloved doxies that […]

Diann Kayah (Tap Student)

I hadn’t tap danced since “two score and seven years ago.” Life and adulthood and taking myself too seriously always seemed more important than making music with my feet. When I finally mustered enough courage to try tap dancing again, I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect teacher than Merrideth Ziesse to catch me […]
