Colle Dillner

Owner/Artistic Director

Colle began her journey and passion for dance at the age of 3. By the age of 9 she was performing up to 6 days a week as Molly and Felicity in the American Girl production of Circle of Friends. In 2007, she began training as a competitive dancer, attending competitions and conventions throughout Indiana and the Chicagoland area. Colle fulfilled her love for modern and ballet dance by graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dance Education from Columbia College Chicago. Through Columbia, she took full advantage of training and studying with Joe Goode Dance Company in San Francisco under the direction of Joe Goode and intensives at the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance. From 2014-2016 she was a member of the Reveries in Motion Dance Company under artistic director Heather Peterson. In 2016, she moved from Chicago back to her home town in Crown Point where she became a barre instructor at Studio Barre and began coaching the Taft Middle School dance team. She currently is the head coach of the Crown Point JV Dance Team. Colle is very happy to share her experiences and passion of dance to the youth of NW Indiana at 413!
