Miss Kayln, the studio owner, has loved the performing arts even before she can remember! She loved all things performing including singing, dancing, and acting. She is truly thankful to her mentors that have taught her everything she knows, and trained her to be the performer and teacher that she is today. Kayln looked at focusing on just performing for a long time, but there was a part of her that knew she would forever miss the instructing part of what she had learned. She can distinctively remember when the spark of performing lit her life and the people that helped fan the flame over the years. There is nothing that she loves more then seeing her students flame ignite and grow far beyond what they ever imagined it could be. She is truly excited to have opened her own studio where she can ignite and fan the flames of her students everyday! Because it isn't about being the best in the world but rather creating someone's world! It's all about the relationship.
Thank you for looking into into our Studio we hope to see you soon in the future!

It also includes charging stations for Parent or Student's devices, a play table for the little ones to use while they wait for their class to begin, as well as lots of reading materials and a bathroom.

There will also be other classes held in this space that require Dance Marley or could benefit from the use of Marley.
Our Back Movement Space features a large open space with a true sprung tile floor where each tile has a thin layer of "Marley" over the top for each stability. Although, this floor is not over lain with Marley it is perfectly ideal for soft shoes, ballroom, pointe, and those designated dances.

Music has been such an important part of Mr. Andrew's life ever since he was a little boy. From taking Piano to Beating a Drum (which is where you will see him most commonly) he loves the ins and outs of music. Andrew grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado and attend Central High School where he competed in several band events, including Marching Band, one of his greatest joys! Andrew inspired by his teachers decided that he was called to become a Music Educator and attend Colorado State University to receive a Bachelors in Music Education. He student taught with Daniel Berard at Fossil Ridge, Fort Collins. He took his first job at Hays/ Lodgepool in Montana and then he came to Delta Middle School to teach band and has been in the district ever since! He loves working with the middle schoolers every day and sees approximately 150 students within his music program there. Although, he throughly loves teaching he also loves playing the instrument of choice, percussion! You may have seen him playing around the valley with Take 5, The Valley Symphony Orchestra, Montrose Community Band, Delta Christian Church, and he has even played at Magic Circle for a spell, as well as any other opportunity he has to embrace music. "Being able to see a student not even know what their instrument looks like, to them being able to play a note, to making beautiful music on it is one of the best features of my job," says Mr. Andrew. When one doesn't know what to say... play on!
Instructor & Office Assistant
I am currently a Junior at Delta High School in Delta, Colorado. After graduating, I plan to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. In Addition to being an advanced full-time student, I am training at the Broadway Collective, a rigorous musical theatre academy, where my award winning coaches and mentors including Kate Lumpkink, CSA (Casting Director), and Robert Hartwell (The Broadway Collective Founder and CEO), among many others. Additionally, I'm highly involved with my local dance studio where I take and teach weekly dance classes. I played the supporting lead role of Davey in Newsies (Magic Circle Players) and the lead dance role of Mufasa and Simba in the production of The Lion King (Starbeam Studios). Musically I am inspired by Ben Platt and Jeremy Jordan along with their skills on the stage. I am inspired by the classic dance styles of Fred Astaire and the more contemporary styles of Derek Hough. My major influences include Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Jessica Vosk, and Andrew Barth Feldman. When I am not training, rehearsing, or performing you will find me listening to old records and finding ideas for my next big project. I am very grateful for my wonderful family, friends, and community who have always believed in me and my dreams. Thank you for always encouraging me to reach for the stars.
Mianna has been teaching fitness for about 5 years and is a certified personal trainer. She loves getting to teach people the importance of loving their body. Mianna grew up dancing as it was a huge passion of her sister's. She found that she loves getting to work with kids on how to express themselves through motion and song. Mianna believes that classes, whether fitness driven or dance, should be fun and self-confidence boosting. She believes that we all learn best and will stick to something the more positivity that surrounds the activity. Mianna is super grateful to be able to come back as a teacher/ instructor this fall and cannot wait to see how her classes grow in strength, technique, and relationships.
Sarah has always loved dancing and the opportunity it offers to have fun and create something beautiful. Growing up in Denver, Sarah learned several styles of dance as well as gymnastics. She studied ballet at the Academy of Classical Ballet where she danced on pointe in "The Nutcracker." As a teen, a great dance mentor made Modern dance and pas de deux new favorites. Dancing got her into Musical Theater when she sang and danced in her highschool's productions including "Oklahoma '' and "The Music Man ''. Sarah led a college dance group called Melee which performed jazz, lyrical, tap and international styles. She also taught youth dance classes and fondly remembers having a blast on stage with her students while wearing a neon pink 1980's style tutu! During her world travels, she took belly dancing lessons in Morocco and folk dance in India. In recent years, Sarah has mainly been dancing in the kitchen with her 3 kids and is so excited to be teaching again to spread the joy of dance!
