Katie Giese

Owner, Instructor

Hello! I'm Miss Katie. After graduating from Loras in 2004, I opened 5678 in 2005 with the help of my family. I have had the privilege of watching the studio grow out of two locations before it found it's final home in Asbury. My husband Mark and I have three kids, one of which is on the dance team! My favorite style is Tap. I have had the same tap shoes since I opened the studio!

Nicole Tygart

I have been an instructor at Studio 5678 since 2016. I grew up doing studio and competitive dance in Cedar Rapids, and continued to dance through college with the University of Iowa’s Dance Club.  In my free time, I love to snuggle with my two cats: Tizzy and Toki!

Hi, I'm Miss Liz! I am married and  have 4 children, 3 girls and 1 boy. All of my children have danced at Studio 5678 since 2007. All of my girls are still dancing at the studio, but my son decided to focus more on his sports instead.  I started working in the office at Studio 5678 a few years ago and love my job. I am always available for questions or concerns you may have. Please stop by and say hello.
