Rocky Mountain Dance Company
Rocky Mountain Dance Company is Tumbler Ridge’s newest recreational and competitive dance studio. Founded in 2020, after relocating and closing their previous studio of 7 years from another community, RMDC offers classes for just about everyone in the family. Starting with lessons at just the age of 2, professionally trained and accredited dance instructors will help to elevate your dance form and expression. Special, guest instructors often make appearances throughout the year as well.
The aim of the studio is to build upon strong techniques, safety and fun, following CLI studio content that prepares dancers for local, regional and national level competitions. There are 6 week sessions available for the youngest, budding dancers, all with affordable rates to get the next generation introduced to the love of dance. All forms of dance are considered, though specializations lie with acro, ballet, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop, tap, troupe and contemporary.

Meet Katelynn Garden
As a recently settled resident of Tumbler Ridge, Katelynn Garden acknowledges the supportive nature of her newfound community. She and her family have been whole-heartedly welcomed in, and have very quickly felt at home in their new surroundings. Originally Katelynn began teaching dance in her previous community as a means to create a flexible schedule. Her dream was to share her love for dance while being able to remain present in her child's life. “I love seeing students hit set goals, hit them, and set more,” shares the entrepreneur. “Nothing beats the look on a dancer’s face backstage after they have left it all on the dance floor.” Now that connections have been made and her company's reputation has taken off with resounding support and recognition, Katelynn has been finding time to explore the region's outstanding outdoor recreational opportunities. The Garden family enjoys hunting, hiking and exploring new places. And as if one business didn't keep her busy enough, Katelynn also owns a home and garden renovation company called Rocky Mountain Design Co. Garden Homes Renovations. It never really feels like work when you do what you love!
