About Airborne Dance Studio in Longmont, CO
Are all dance studios the same? Of course not! At Airborne Dance studio, we strive to provide the best experience possible, but in the end, only you can decide if we are right for your situation.
When deciding which dance studio to enroll your child in, we ask you to take a moment to consider the following:
Who is teaching your child?
When we look for new staff members and dance instructors, we first look for people who truly love children. We can teach the skills and supply the technical information, but we can’t teach people to genuinely love children and love to teach children. We hold monthly in-house training sessions for all staff members. Training topics range from class organization to teaching advanced skills.
Our senior dance instructors either have (or are pursuing) college degrees in the Dance or Education fields or have professional dance experience.
Can I watch my child?
Absolutely! All of our dance studio rooms have one way mirrors to allow you to watch classes at any time.
Is my child safe while in class?
Yes. All of our instructors are first aide/CPR qualified and are trained in class discipline techniques.
Will my child have fun in class?
Yes. Although we do have competitive dance teams for the more serious students, our goal is not to make every child the next Olympic gold medalist or the next ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ champion.
We strive to give every student the essential life skills necessary to succeed in whatever they choose to do in their lives. We aim to develop your child’s sense of self-discipline and self-respect, teamwork, and creativity, all while helping them to become physically fit and recognize the importance of exercise in they lives. We do all this, while making sure every child has a great time!
How does Airborne release students after class?
One of Airborne’s main goals is to keep our students safe. View our general class policies for an outline of how we release kids from their dance classes.
What Kind of Dance Floors do you use?
We have “floating” dance floors in all of our rooms, with a Marley surface for dancing on. Marley is the preferred surface for dancing for most professional dance companies.
What is a floating dance floor? A floating floor is a subfloor that is laid over (in our case anyway, there are many options) small squares of foam. This allows the floor to ‘give’ under a dancer when they jump and land. This helps prevent jarring of the joints and helps to prevent injuries. The Marley surface is designed to be a versatile surface for all types of dance. It is slippery enough to allow dancers to turn on it yet is slightly rubberized so that it is not dangerous to dance on. Marley is used all over the world by dancers because it makes such a good surface.
History of Airborne
Colorado Gymnastics World started in a small warehouse in April of 1989. Current owner, Pam Turner, began working at Colorado Gymnastics World as team program director in January of 1991 and ended up purchasing the company in August of 1991.
Since that time, enrollment increased every year and forced the business to move to a larger, specialized facility in 1996. At that time, the dance and climbing programs were added and the name changed to Airborne Gymnastics & Dance. After another few years of rapid growth, Airborne more than doubled the size of the facility creating the state of the art facility used today.
As we’ve continued to grow, at the beginning of 2015 Airborne Gymnastics & Dance split into Airborne Gymnastics and Airborne Dance, but are still housed in the same facility.
