To create a place where students become technically strong in the art of dance, while they learn and grow in life.
Megan’s love of dance started early in her life. She began dancing at the age of five, was a part of a competition group in high school, started assisting dance classes at fifteen, and at eighteen began teaching her own classes. Megan has a bachelors degree in Accounting and Financial Management, as well as an Associates Degree in Art with emphasis in Dance. She has taken class from multiple instructors including Stacey Tookey, Allison Holker, and John Crutchman, as well as local classes from various teachers in the Denver Metro Area. She has attended the Boulder Dance Workshop for teachers and continues to take class and further her dance education. She knew from the first time she was an assistant in a dance class that she truly enjoyed teaching. There is no greater joy than seeing that you can affect a young person's life. That is Megan's mission, to not only have a technically solid dance studio but a place that kids feel comfortable and can learn and grow in life, not just in dance.
Megan is a member of NDEO (National Dance Education Organization) and working towards her certification in dance education through NDEO.

Hello! I am thrilled to be apart of the dance family at Dream Dance Studios! I started dancing when I was three and loved everything about it. I took a short break from dance as a kid and started again in middle school. I tried a few studios around the Denver area and came to Dream in eighth grade. Ever since I’ve been training in ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary and joined the competition team freshman year. Dance has become such a positive part of my life. I’ve assisted classes throughout high school and am more than excited to be teaching this year. I can’t wait to share my love of dance with younger dancers!

Hello! My name is Kaylee Cross. I have been training as a hiphop dancer for around 10 years now. I started at a studio taking various classes, and I fell in love with hiphop! I was apart of a competitive team, and attended competitions and conventions. Now I frequently train by myself, with others, exchange in battles, and attend hiphop conventions. I am currently a student at MSU Denver with a major in psychology; however, I have been also participating in the dance team at the school as well! I hope to bring a foundation of hiphop, and inspire others to find who they are through their movement.

Hello! My name is Ally Anderson. I am currently a senior at Green Mountain High School, and I am so thrilled to be able to teach Ballet 1, Ballet/tap 1 & 2, and Jazz 1 this year. I started dancing when I was about 3 years old in Utah. My mom was a dancer and teacher for a portion of her life, so she put me in dance. I moved to Wyoming, continued training in ballet and then started Irish dancing at the age of 7. I did competitive Irish dance for another 7 years, getting to go to nationals several times and almost qualify for worlds. I continued to practice basic ballet training throughout that time to maintain good technique. When I was 14, I stopped Irish dancing and started ballet, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, and ballet again. I joined my high school dance team in Wyoming for a little under a year, and danced with a studio. I moved to Colorado about 3 years ago, and found Dream. This will be my third year on the dance team, and I am so sad about that. Dream has absolutely been the best studio I’ve ever danced at with the most welcoming and encouraging environment. I am so excited to share my love of dancing with your students this year!
