We Love Teaching Your Children!



Since 2014

Founded by Miss. Denise in 1999 , Denise Harper's Dance Company provided dance education to the Great Falls area for 15 Years, Miss Nicole was a student and teacher of Miss Denise for 13 years, and had the opportunity to continue Miss Denise's goal of providing dance education for Great Falls children. Miss Nicole acquired Denise Harpers Dance Company in 2014, and Live 2 Dance Studio was born! After operating for 4 years in our first location, Live 2 Dance Studio moved to 1108 9th Street South. This provided the growth to add a second studio and gymnastics classes with Miss Jessica. Live 2 Dance Studio & Gymnastics is thankful to have the opportunity to provide affordable dance and gymnastics education for all of your wonderful children.


Live 2 Dance Studio & Gymnastics has a large variety of classes for every skill level from beginner to competition. Whether you are interested in competition dance or looking to enjoy dance or gymnastics and just have fun, we have a class that’s right for you.
