Claudia Newman began teaching dance in Maine during the 1950's.  She also taught in Germany while her husband was stationed in the Army.  After settling home in the Central Michigan area, she began instructing classes at Farwell and Harrison High Schools.  In 1960, Mrs. Newman founded the Newman School of Dance in Clare, Michigan. The studio was sold to Jacqueline Newman Harrison in the fall of 2013.  Mrs. Newman continues to teach a variety of classes at the Newman School of Dance and most enjoys having her great-grandchildren as students!
