Summit Dance has been sharing our passion for dance with Summit County since 1983. Then called the Summit School of Dance, we opened our doors with just a few dance classes, taught out of the basement of a local church. In the summer of 1988, the school was purchased by Melanie Frey. Over the years, under her direction, Summit Dance grew to house two studios in our main location in Frisco and a studio in Breckenridge. In June of 2017, Melanie passed the torch to a teacher, Kelly Threlkeld. She has taken the studio to new heights introducing new programming and adding a new local performing team to the studio's offerings. During the shutdown of our county due to COVID-19, Kelly took the entire studio into an online platform keeping the chance to dance alive for every Summit Dance student. Kelly is the current owner and Chief Creative Officer for Summit Dance.
