About Us

Our Mission

We are touched by Grace, and dance is an expression of our inherent gracefulness. Grace Conservatory is fully devoted to providing dancers of all ages an encouraging environment where they are given the opportunity to grow and excel in their dance education. We strive to deliver the highest quality of dance training, while nurturing each student’s unique gift of talent and creativity. We wish to encourage our students to achieve their fullest potential – to support them as they grow artistically and academically, and develop into well-rounded individuals – nourished in body, mind and spirit.

Our Studio

Our multi-million dollar facility was crafted from the ground up to be one of the most professional dance spaces in the world. We spent over $100,000 on our floors alone. They are 4.5 inches thick with seven layers to absorb the shock of dance on the feet, ankles, and knees. Our air conditioning system is custom built to pump fresh air into the building when CO2 levels rise from dancers exerting themselves during instruction. We have a 1,200 foot lobby with a dance store, refreshments, and Wi-Fi for parents. The dancers get their own space in the private dressing room outfitted with built in lockers and a sitting area. No expense was spared on the finishes in the building that include quartzite countertops and lead crystal chandeliers.

Why would we go to this extent and this expense to craft our space? Simple, we want the best for our dancers. If we go to this extreme with wood and drywall, how much do you think we’ll invest in our greatest asset…your child? Read about the bios of our instructors, and you will see that there is no place like Grace Conservatory.

What do we believe?

Kristina and I are followers of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we believe in the inherent worth of each person. No matter your religion, gender, nationality, or any other identifying feature of your personality or identity, we vow to love your family and your child “as we love ourselves.” The values of Excellence, Kindness, Community, and Humility guide all we do as an organization. Our own faith in God requires us to love, especially if you don’t believe what we do. We hope you will feel that love in all that we do, and if you don’t, please speak with us. Our organization is a place to “Grow in Grace,” and our promise is to be graceful to you and your child every moment that you spend with us.
