In October of 2000, sisters, Jennifer Owens and Julie Jarnot, proudly opened Artistic Fusion Dance Academy. Their vision was to open a dance school, unique to the area, which would focus on providing a quality dance education. They would expose and educate their students in ALL styles and genres of dance as well as teach dance history and an appreciation for the arts. They are committed to providing a warm, fair and nurturing environment, which would assist in the development of the young dancer’s individual spirit, passion, and self-esteem.
Artistic Fusion started with a small company of 8 and quickly grew into a nationally recognized establishment with an outstanding reputation! Shortly after the grand opening, Artistic Fusion began attracting dancers from all over the Denver area. Dancers started commuting from Fort Collins, Breckenridge, Aurora, Ken Caryl, Golden, and Monument just to train at AF!
In 2005, Artistic Fusion relocated into a more spacious setting, which would allow them to provide a larger dance area for our students. It is currently the home to Artistic Fusion Dancers.
Today, we are honored to still be the leaders in dance education and are proud of our reputation for nurturing technically trained dancers. Our dancers possess a genuine and unique quality in their abilities and they are renowned for their knowledge in all dance forms. They are known nationally for their creative and diverse company pieces, their passion and their professionalism. Our students have attained national championship titles and recognition which lead them to being featured in dance magazines, television, movies and national tours. The company most recently gained the title as New York City Dance Alliance national Critics Choice winner of 2008. Our graduating seniors have gone onto either college to further their dance education, or to work in New York or Los Angeles furthering their dance careers.
We are very proud of all of our students here at Artistic Fusion and are very grateful for the growth and success of the students and the studio. We will always be committed to providing an environment in which the dancers, through the discipline of dance, will gain self-respect, self-appreciation, artistic freedom and the confidence to always DANCE to the beat of their own drum.
