About Creative Caterpillar

CC Logo Grow Your Wings PNGCreative Caterpillar is made up of Co-Founders, Miss Andrea and Mister Mike, as well as a very few carefully selected and trained individuals who have clearly demonstrated that they have the skill and the personality to be the perfect fit to assist our company Mission. We take our decisions to bring people on board very seriously, so for a person to be offered a position with our company, we are adopting them as a part of the Creative Caterpillar Family.

We know that the families that we serve have come to expect this kind of care. We are proud of the way we can be assured that all members of the Creative Caterpillar Family of professionals can rise to the challenge of engaging the hearts, minds, and bodies of our participants in the journey of finding their most creative and expressive selves.

Miss Andrea was involved in formal dance training from preschool onward. She was a member of Menomonee Falls’ Accompany Of Kids throughout high school and went on to receive her BFA in Musical Theatre from Emerson College in Boston, MA.

She is thrilled to have launched Creative Caterpillar LLC in Milwaukee featuring the Dancercise Kids® curriculum because she has found it such a universally effective way to excite very young children’s interest in discovering the joy of creativity and expression.

Mister Mike is a Milwaukee native who was raised on the stage. He started performing thanks to his parents in third grade. He went on to participate in theater and visual arts throughout high school, and was educated at the post-secondary level through the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program’s Inaugural Class of 2004.

It is by engaging the youngest among us that we gain citizens devoted to the value of creative expression in their adult life, and all citizens benefit from more skillful expression.
