Molly CominMolly Comin, Tap Director, Class Act Dance, Paso Robles, CA
Tap Director, Choregrapher
Molly has been teaching at Class Act Dance since 1990 calling it her “home studio” for the past 25 years teaching many ages and levels in tap as well as pre-dance, intro ballet, and Broadway Jazz.  Molly has most recently studied in Los Angeles with Sarah Reich, Linda Sohl-Ellison, and Greg Poland.  A true “Southern Belle” born in south-east Alabama where she grew up competing in etiquette, beauty and talent competitions as well as performing in local theatre productions.  A member of the Alabama Youth Ballet at age 9, Molly developed a strong appreciation for strict dance technique.  Under the tutelage of Diana Shillabeer Clouse and Tom McCauley, Molly developed a passion for tap that compelled her to participate and compete in numerous Dance Educators Conventions in Atlanta, New Orleans and New York.  Inspired by the choreography and discipline of Debbie Dee, Molly devised her own system of tap instruction.  She began teaching at 16 focusing on precision and speed combined with a commitment to use current music that she often found more relative to her young students.    A true lover of the stage, Molly has been known to sing in, and even direct, choirs and children’s musicals.   She was a member of the cast of Pioneer Players production of “Annie” in 2003.  Molly offers instruction etiquette, pageantry, interview, and public speaking; she enjoys dancing West Coast Swing with her husband Giovanni and has often performed in Atascadero’s Library fundraiser “Dancing with Our Stars”.  Molly is the proud mother of two children: Vittoria, a member of the Princeton Tap Cats, and Luciano, a senior at Atascadero HS.  The founder of NCDPAF’s Mercer-Sanchez Scholarship fund, Molly honors ballroom master Frank Sanchez and the late Vaudevillian Bud Mercer as she supports young talented boys in their pursuit of careers in dance and the performing arts.  For more info:
