Meet our amazing Virtual Club staff!

Natalie Carr
Dance Mentor

I have a bachelors of fine arts with an emphasis in dance from the University of Minnesota. I love teaching youth hip hop, modern, jazz, tap, ballet, lyrical and some tumbling. I spend all my spare time with my husband and enjoying my two small boys. I hope you’ll join me live for dance classes, and I have a bunch of dance videos on the Virtual Club! Be sure to do my warm-up video beforehand!

Alison Unzelman
Visual Arts Mentor

I have a degree in commercial art from the Minneapolis Technical Institute. I am always staying busy as an artist! In addition to my work at the Club, I own and operate a full service art/design/photography studio in Becker, Minnesota. I hope you’ll enjoy the many art tutorials I have on the Virtual Club that you can do at home with any materials you can find.

Angel Schlangen
Visual Arts & STEM Mentor

I have a degree in art history from St. Cloud State University. I have a lot of interests and specialties as a visual artist, painter, photographer, and museum curator. I LOVE science, and I hope you’ll enjoy my videos on science and STEM activities.

Kylie Nelson
Academic Success Coordinator

I have a degree in psychology with a double minor in criminal justice and community psychology from St. Cloud State University. As the Academic Success Coordinator at the Eastside Club, I get to run some awesome programs with the kids.  I love to watch youth learn and grow in their academic journeys! I hope you’ll join me live for homework help & tutoring weekly via Zoom.
