Meet The Instructors of Mountain Kids Dance


Mary Martin has over 15 years of experience teaching dance to all ages and levels of students. She teaches several genres of dance including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and hip-hop. Mary’s own dance education began at an early age and has spanned across the country to many dance studios and schools. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Arts in Dance from Oklahoma City University, Mary performed around the US and overseas.  Mary continued her education at Naropa University in Boulder where she received a Master’s of Art in Somatic Counseling Psychology with a concentration in dance/movement therapy.

Using skills from dance/movement therapy, Mary is able to understand and encourage the integration of body development, social and communication development, and brain development, in children through movement and dance. Mary combines her passion for dance with her passion for working with children with special needs. Other experience Mary has in working with children with special needs and their families includes: The Joshua School in Denver & Boulder, CO (practicum student); Special Olympics in Arvada, CO (gymnastics coach); Mount Saint Vincent Home in Denver, CO (internship/therapist); THINKTogether in Orange County, CA (mentor/dance instructor); Autism Movement Therapy (certified instructor).

After completing the initial assessment and receiving a recommendation for gymnastics, dance, or yoga classes, Contact Mary at any time to begin discussing how Mountain Kids can best support your child.
