Springs Dance was founded on the belief that positive movement communities have a special power to change lives.
Obesity, isolation, and uncertainty are just a few of the real challenges youth and adults face today. Many are longing for the support of a positive community.
Motivated by passion for movement, the founders saw first-hand the ways dance, acrobatics, and music helped to change the course for students - beginning with building healthy bodies as a foundation for learning to practice discipline, work with others, face challenges with grace, and take creative approaches to problem solving...all with the support of like-minded developing artists and instructors.
With a commitment to these founding principles, Springs Dance has trained artists in Colorado Springs to lead both in and out of the studio. Students grow from their first halting steps to learning to master their own movements and then sharing their experience with the next generation. The focus, discipline, and creativity students practice every week in the studio go with them into their personal, academic, and professional lives bringing them success both on and off the floor.
Part of the magic of teaching leadership through dance is the genuine satisfaction and joy students experience as they practice. Students stay motivated and committed as they work with their instructors to become their very best selves.
We take care to avoid a focus on trophies, competitions, and waistlines which can create a competitive atmosphere of anxiety and poor body image where only a few students shine and others are left on the sidelines.
We believe that excellence can be achieved by all students, regardless of age, body type, or natural ability. Our programs allow students to refine their talents while strengthening their weaknesses with opportunities to succeed and meaningfully contribute in diverse areas of the studio.
We love dance. We love the way our practice builds creativity, keeps us engaged in life, and gives us the opportunity to share our passion with others. At Springs Dance, we build on that love with a focus on developing those leadership skills that will allow our students to get the most out of their training at the studio, progress as quickly as possible, and be prepared to lead both in and out of the studio.
