About Mountain Contemporary Dance Arts

From the Director

Thank you for choosing to be part of Mountain Contemporary Dance Arts! Central to my beliefs is that dance is an essential and integral part of any thriving community. Dance is an activity that can connect people to the world around them, encourage empathy and communication, and expand their horizons. As a discipline, dance is extremely rewarding with countless opportunities for growth. It instills strong work ethic, creative problem solving, physical and mental stamina, and teamwork, to list a few. As a member of the Denver Metro dance community since I was 15 years old, I have performed professionally, taught, collaborated, and worked with a wide range of people, studios, and dance professionals in Colorado. In the time since I began at MCDA in 2012, I can truly say that what we have here is special. The MCDA curriculum fosters a mind/body/spirit connection that honors the beauty, depth, and joy of individual dancers through emphasizing artistic, technical and creative development. We offer unique training opportunities in a family friendly environment that aims to nurture a lifelong love of dance and art within all the dancers in your family. We can’t wait to dance with you!
