A classically trained dancer, Servais studied over the years most notably under David Howard, Mark Jelks, Duncan Noble, Ronnie DeMarco, Jon Rodriguez, Teresa Wylie-McWilliams, Gary Geis, as well as the faculty of BalletMet, Columbus, and Broadway Dance Center, New York City. Servais toured for five years, as a principal dancer, with the Mid-Ohio Valley Ballet Company in conjunction with the Arts-in-Education program to bring culture to West Virginia school children.
