Lexy Stroud-Abbott
Owner & Operator


Known as "Miss Lexy" within her dance families. Lexy has been dancing since the age of 6. She has recently danced at the college level with the Kirkwood Community College dance team in Cedar Rapids. She studied Business Management along with a certification in Entrepreneurship. Lexy loves sharing her talent & choreography within the community and looks forward to what is in store for Next Level Dance both competitively & recreationally. Here is to taking dance to the next level, creating memories, and supporting one another! Teaching lessons both inside and outside of the classroom as well as continuing her dance knowledge and education is top priority. 

Abi Coats

Abi started recreational dance at the age of 2 and competing at the age of 4, she continued to dance until the age of 17. Abi loves all types of dance. She has competed with Lyrical, Jazz, hip hop, tap. She has taken part in large groups, small groups, solos, and  productions. In the course of her dancing career she has had the opportunity to work with many award winning choreographers from across the  country. As a dancer, Abi achieved many awards at both Regional and National events, including overall high score placements and regional titles. Abi also works for the Dubuque Community School district in the autism program.  


As a Dance Teacher Abi feels that it is important for her students to feel confident, motivated and inspired at all times and that they are in an environment they feel comfortable in. She wants to see her students succeed, be proud of their accomplishments and enjoy all of the hard work and dedication they put into dance. 

I am excited to join the Next Level Family.
