Trudy Yeatts

Theresa Sindelar

Dancing Classroom Instructor

Trudy has been a teaching artist for Dancing Classrooms for the last four
years and also enjoys teaching voice, musical theatre, and dance as an
instructor for Broadway at the Rose. She grew up in New Jersey and
began a professional performing career in New York City at the age of 6.
She has performed on Broadway and National Tours in such shows as “A
Chorus Line”, “Shenandoah”, “Dames at Sea”, and “A Day in Hollywood/A
Night in the Ukraine”. She developed a night club act and was booked in
N.Y.C. , Los Angeles, resorts in the Poconos, and cruise ships. She then
moved to Ohio where she spent 23 years singing for a Christian Ministry,
writing original songs, producing/directing/choreographing sketches and
musicals, and coaching many singers. She moved with her family to
Omaha in 2015 and began working for the Rose as a private voice
instructor. Since that time she has loved the numerous opportunities that
have opened up for her to teach and share from her professional
experiences with young people who adore Musical Theatre like she does.
One of her greatest accomplishments in Omaha was writing the songs for
an original musical, “Penguin Problems”, based on the children’s book by
Jory John and Lane Smith. She was co-writer with the Rose Theater’s
Artistic Director, Matt Gutschick, and the musical was produced at the
Rose in September/October, 2020. Trudy has also enjoyed entertaining at
retirement homes in Omaha and blessing the residents with old classic
songs that they know and love.
