About Us

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 finding the dancer inside you and bringing it to life. 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 inspires the soul.

Devine Dancers is the most elite competitive dance studio in Iowa. We are the only studio in IA to compete all of our pieces at the most elite level. In addition, for the 2018 competition season, 100% of our group pieces received Platinums, the highest adjudication award possible. We believe in the potential of all our dancers. Everyone has an angel inside!

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.

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. Maria Filippone
