About Us

Devine Dancers is the most elite competitive dance studio in Iowa. We are the only studio in Central Iowa to compete all of our pieces at the most elite level allowed at every competition. In addition, our group pieces have maintained above a 90% top placement (1st, 2nd or 3rd place) average for the last five years.

Most importantly, we believe in finding each dancer’s inner strength so that their light can shine as bright as it was meant to. We provide top notch training to our recreational dancers who come to learn dance for fun and healthy expression. We maintain high standards for all our dancers with the aim to build a love for the art and athleticism of dance that inspires the soul.

Be an Angel


This is my first year of dancing and I love it because it is so fun to play with friends. When I grow up I want to be a Princess and go to work at dance class!


It’s SO so fun! I learn so much and dance all the time.



Give the Gift of Dance

Dance is a gift! Babies move to music before they can walk or even talk. You were made to dance! At Devine Dancers, we believe in building on that basic drive to move to music. Dance requires the footwork of a boxer, the endurance of a sprinter, the strength of a wrestler, the musicality of a composer, the intuition of a painter and the delicate expressiveness of a thespian. At Devine, we aim to blend the art and athleticism of dance that will allow you to express what words cannot.

Devine Dancers

The adult classes at Devine Dancers have reignited my long-buried passion for dance.  I was ecstatic when I discovered I could dance in the recital too!  I haven’t danced since I graduated from HS (a long, long time ago).  I moved all three of my girls over to Kelli’s studio after my first year.  Now, I get to dance in their recitals, which is very special to me.  Kelli is quite wonderful at fostering a positive, warm, and supportive environment in her studio, my girls have even remarked on it.  That is not the case in other studios.  Also, Kelli really pushes me to accomplish more than I thought I ever could.  She is remarkable.  And she is hardcore. She expects you to give her your best.  The beautiful thing is, if you do, she will give you hers.  And her best is beyond words.
