About Our Teachers:

Elizabeth Brinton (Owner/Instructor) has been dancing her whole life training in classical ballet, jazz, tap, hip-hop, ballroom, folk dance and more. She performed with the BYU ballroom team and folk dance ensemble and somehow found time to graduate with her BS in Business Management and minor in ballroom dance. After college, she danced in the Mesa Easter Pageant and performed in musicals at Hale Theatre Gilbert. She taught at several dance studios in Mesa and Gilbert for almost 10 years before moving to Snowflake in 2015. As a wife and a mother of 4 children, life keeps her pretty busy but dancing is what keeps her mostly sane. 

Elizabeth and Jeff Brinton opened Dance Amour in February 2016 and have been overwhelmed by the support from this wonderful community! Thank you!!

The Madrigals choir also used Greta as the choreographer for their end-of-year concert showpiece in 2016 & 2017.
