A very creative friend of mine - a fellow dance teacher/studio owner came to me with an idea for an elite team for her studio.

With a cool name like the division - it needed to have a cool logo - NAILED IT!

Diverse Dance Company
Heya! Construction Carl here!
I've always been a bit clumsy and the construction crew is always telling me to watch where I step, so I thought I should work on that and get some fancy footwork skills!

I saw Diverse Dance Company was right downtown and oh boy is it the place to go! They have a whole bunch of styles of dance to choose from, so of course I went with ballet.

How do you think I did? Am I ready for Dancing with the Stars yet?Head on over to Diverse Dance Company to check out everything they have to offer.

What does the 'Martine' mean? Is everyone getting photos or just certain classes? Last year I know photos were done in their costumes....

September 23rd – 28th – Pictures taken during class (Martine)
Diverse is the place to be in GP! They took a chance on my daughter this year and allowed her to dance there very part time as we live more than two hours away from GP as a transition for a full time move there next season. Watching her confidence and inspiration grow from being around both amazing staff and dedicated, driven students has been amazing! Diverse is so much more than amazing technique and choreography! It is a family with the most positive atmosphere and attitude!!! We are diverse all the way!!! 👍👍💜
Please give a huge congratulations to our:
VIP champion: Forbidden Love - DansConnection
1st runner up: Kids in Love - DansConnection School of Performing Arts
2nd Runner up: Breakaway - Diverse Dance Company

All other results will be posted throughout the week.

Congratulations to all of our Dancers and teachers! Thank you to both Sherri and Sandra for doing a great job adjudicating!

Creativity. Courage. Community.
