The Ziegfeld Arts Academy is proud to have a wonderful group of private instructors who provide lessons at our facility. You can find out more about them by reading their bios below and then click on the link to book with them.
These are dedicated professionals who have worked with many of the youth in our programs over the years. They will require your child(ren) to work hard and be self disciplined but the rewards will be outstanding and you won't be sorry you provided this gift for them.
DYLAN FLOYD PANTER
As if Dylan couldn’t get enough of Zig youth students, he’s now offering voice lessons! Dylan has a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre from the University of Utah and has been performing for 14 years, performing in his first musical at only 9 years old. He is originally from Oregon, but moved to Utah to pursue theatre in 2017.
Dylan has been music directing shows for 10 years and offered vocal coaching for 4. He specializes in vocal styles such as pop (with a passion for riffing), contemporary musical theatre, classical, and jazz. He can’t wait to work with the youth to help them find their voices, just like he has!
CASSIDY WIXON (HEISE)
Cassidy Wixon (Heise) has 20 years experinece as a performer. She was bitten by the acting bug in Jr. High, but when she auditioned for her first musical in high school and wasn't cast, it became her mission to become a "triple threat." She studied at The Performer's Studio in SLC for 3 years. During her time, she participated in their intensive "Singers Academy" which teaches not only how to sing and act for Musical Theater, but to sing and act every song that's put in front of you. In lessons your child will learn how to sing it all vocally, healthily, emotionally connected, and with the confidence to have that "star power" every director looks for.
She went on to study musical theatre at Weber State University for 6 years where she had amazing vocal teachers such as Maurie Tarbox, Kenneth Plain, and Jim Christian. She has performed in many professional/ semi-professional theatres in Northern Utah including Lagoon, Good Company Theatre, and, of course, here at The Zig. Her talents have even taken her to NYC where she attended The Open Jar Institute and got a crash course from professionals on what it takes to make it as a Performer.
