Mrs. Lindsay Blackburne


Welcome Parents and Guardians,

My name is Lindsay Blackburne and I am the Dance Director at Cox Mill High School.  Because this is the first way for me to introduce myself to many of you, I will begin by giving you a bit of my background history.  I graduated from Jacksonville University, in Jacksonville, Florida having obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Dance Education.  Following graduation, I continued my professional career dance performing on Disney Cruise Line for two years where I met my husband who is from Australia.  I then moved to Arizona to begin both a high school and a middle school dance program.  My family and I moved back to the east coast to be closer to my family and I continued teaching by building Hopewell High School's first dance program and this year I am currently going on 13 years of teaching. This past June, I published my first instructional book for dance educators and I am proud to be an official published author. I am blessed to have this opportunity at Cox Mill High School and look forward to working with your children and building its dance program. 

This year, as a virtual classroom, we will be utilizing Canvas for all information including forms, syllabus, assignments, quizzes, etc. Please refer to Canvas for all instructional needs. 


Kind Regards, 

Lindsay Blackburne
