It is our mission to build a community where students can receive comprehensive instruction of dance and share their love of dance with others.  For students to receive instruction that ignites their passion for dance, fosters their growth in multiple styles of dance, and receive a solid foundation of technique. Our community is an atmosphere of encouragement to develop personal creativity, appreciation of the arts and a strong sense of achievement.  It is our desire that every student have the opportunity to maximize their talent while sharing their energy with our community.



After being a highly sought after dance teacher and choreographer in the Denver Metro area for over a decade, Michelle Latimer opened MLDA in 1992.
