HD2 Coaching STAFF

Yvette Edgar: Owner

"Dancers are made, not born"

Yvette Edgar is the Overall Owner and Head Coach of HD2 Studio here in Las Cruces. She has coached national and world level teams for several years. Yvette has seen it all when it comes to the dance industry which acquires her with the expertise and knowledge needed to coach national and world level winning teams which inspired her to open High Definition Dance Studio here in Las Cruces which is currently the only competitive hip hip studio here in town and one of the very few located in the state of New Mexico. She has been a teacher in the New Mexico Public Education System for close to 16 years working with kids of all ages and finding that they needed more outlets to keep them out of trouble which also led her to form a non-profit outreach dance team before opening HD2. Her overall focus is on kids, how to help them and how to benefit them. If you're looking for the best of the best when it comes to coaches, you have found it here in Las Cruces at HD2 where she has provided an outlet of hip hop dance for kids and adults ages 3 and up in a fun, safe environment that provides a family feel. Here in Las Cruces, we are very thankful for Yvette who brings to you, HD2!
