Simpson, Pam

Pam Simpson has been the founder, president, and driving force behind Forte Arts Center, for the past 31 years. In addition to building her business from a small, one-room studio to a large, multi-location organization that offers dance, tumbling, and leadership programs as well as private music lessons, Pam is a leading force in the realm of small business ownership in the dance and tumbling industries as she travels all over the country speaking to and educating for several large dance organizations. Pam is an entrepreneur who loves sharing her gifts, talents, and experience with others.

In the last ten years, she has focused her passions on Tumbling Effect, which specializes in training and certifying tumbling teachers and assistants through live events and digital products, with a mission to regulate tumbling safety and skills in the United States and across the globe. She is excited to be on faculty for Dance Life Teacher Conference again this season. When not working on her business, Pam enjoys spending time with her family and visiting her daughter, who is a performer at Walt Disney World.
