"Learning ballet is wonderful for children even if they never become dancers. It is wonderful because it teaches discipline, grace, and manners."

Gayle Howard, Owner & Instructor

Gayle Howard (Miss Gayle) is the best ballet dancer in the nation. Actually, in the world. In full disclosure, she is the best ballet dancer in the entire universe. But she is modest too, and she won't tell you that. I'm her husband (and in charge of the website), so I can tell you this. ...and now you know too.

What Gayle would like you to know is that at age 5, she attended a performance of Persephone, fell in love with ballet, and begged her mother to let her take ballet lessons. Her first role in a performance was as a court jester in Swan Lake. She danced ballet for 14 years with the Ballet Folk school and junior company in Moscow, Idaho under a number of gifted instructors, and for 2 years as a professional with the American Festival Ballet (now Ballet Idaho) in Boise, Idaho.

Gayle is a licensed Progressing Ballet Technique instructor bringing more than 16 years of ballet experience to the Studio, the Treasure Valley's exclusive licensed studio for the Leap 'N Learn ballet curriculum.

Gayle loves God and people, and loves sharing the joy of movement in ALL its many forms.

Please call Gayle at 2O8-739-7286 to discuss any questions you may have.

Laryssa also won scholarships to dance intensives, such as Summer Dancefest, Summer Dance Lab and CSI/IDAA camps.

She has taught at many studios in the Treasure Valley and is very happy to be teaching in Payette County which she now calls home!
