ABOUT LIVE 2 DANCE STUDIO & GYMNASTICS

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. 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.

Thank you for registering for our summer classes! I send out Reminders at the beginning of each month to keep you updated on what is happening in our studio/gymnastics center! I also post this information on our website and on Facebook! Any new information I need to communicate with you will also be sent out through email and posted on our website!

June Reminders:

  • If you need shoes or dance wear or gymnastics wear, you can purchase these at the studio right before or after class!

Watch for emails all  month long! Competition Tryouts information listed below! Rehearsal and Recital information is on the recital page of this site! 

We will be having a Competition tryouts on May 11th from 10 am to 12 pm for dancers 9 and up looking to compete with their dancing!

At the tryouts:

  • We will work on technique to assess where everyone’s skills are.

  • Learn a couple short routines to perform in small groups.

  • Let the new dancers meet the girls already on our competition team!

  • Let parents ask questions at the beginning or end of our tryouts 😊

  • Sign competition waivers

Being on our competition team is nothing like dance moms! We work on advancing dance technique and building a strong base for future dance opportunities, same as our normal recreational classes but in a more advanced setting. Being a TEAM is extremely important to me, so we also do extra activities outside of class for team bonding.

We practice all summer long so that we can start our routines right away in September and finish them by Christmas. We have a parent meeting in the fall to discuss what competitions we go to, so that parents can have a say in everything we do. During the fall, all competition students must take a technique class as well as their dance classes. Other than the technique class, all other classes are optional in the fall. The number of dances your dancer does is up to you and the prices are the same as the recreational classes!

Summer Schedule starting June 10th and ending August 23rd:

  • Monday – 3:45 – 5:15 pm - Technique

  • Wednesday – 9:00 – 10:30 am – beginning tumbling or 12:00 – 1:30 pm – advanced tumbling

  • Thursday – 3:30 – 4:30 pm - Ballet

  • These are the mandatory summer classes for a tuition of $150 a month.

Being a part of a Competition team is a bigger commitment. Girls are expected to work hard and be at class as often as possible.

Girls that aren’t quite ready for competition will be offered a spot on our pre-competition team. These girls still go to one competition and take all the same summer classes. In the fall they will have a separate technique class to work on learning technique more to be able to join the competition team the following year!

 

Let me know if you have any questions or ask at our Tryouts!
