Whether you're a beginner or a multi-trophy-winning competitor, the instructors at Colorado Dancesport want to help you achieve your dancing goals. They take the time to learn why each student is treading their wood floors; some students want to dance in a social, couples-oriented environment, and others are preparing for a special occasion, such as a wedding or an intraoffice dance-off to control copy-machine access. The talented staffers include a former member of the U.S. international ice-dancing team, professionals who danced at the 2008 CMA Awards, and experts in sports conditioning and physical fitness.

In addition to private lessons and group classes, the crew schedules weekly dance parties to help students practice new moves. The team also offers special events, such as traveling to competitions and an annual, professional-style showcase.

Laura Monahan comes from an artistic family, and spent her youth practicing sculpture, oil painting, pottery, and what turned out to be her ultimate passion: photography. Her ability to preserve candid moments has left an indelible impression—she has a published portfolio on three continents and product lines appearing at national retailers such as Hallmark and JCPenney. Laura’s photo shoots always take place outdoors, capturing newborns, older kids, and families in soft, natural lighting and poses that never appear unnatural. Her settings span the country from San Diego’s foamy beaches to Denver’s red-rock sunsets and into the Midwest’s autumn leaves, and she holds mom's night out events all over the country, including in Honolulu, San Diego, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Denver.

Chef Penni Royston credits nature’s bounty, specifically colorful fruits and veggies, as the inspiration for Nature’s Table Cooking School. A certified Natural Foods Chef, Penni ousts processed junk from recipes and instead uses healthy foods preferred by any serious crafter of edible art. During her classes, chef Penni rounds up a rainbow of ingredients to craft raw dishes, gluten-free fare, or vegan soup and pizza made from scratch. She shifts between demonstration and student participation as she teaches, sending each pupil home with a recipe and a packet of nutritional info so they can calculate how many graves they’ll have to dig in the backyard to burn off the calories.
