"Dancers are made, not born." 
— Mikhail Baryshnikov

At Dena’s Dance Company, we don’t just teach dance, we create dancers. So much more than a sequence of choreographed steps, movement communicates where words fail. Our goals include teaching technique, precision, and poise, while simultaneously instilling teamwork, confidence, and passion.

Owner of DDC, Dena Pribbenow brings over 20 years of teaching experience to the Aitkin area. Dena started dancing at the age of three in the discipline of ballet, but really found her passion for dance when she started tapping and enjoyed this genre through the age of 14. She then danced for her high school dance team for two years. Dena started teaching at the age of 20, finding a love for guiding young performers on their journey of self discovery through choreographing precision dance and theatrical productions alike. Solely focusing on dance instruction for the past eight years, Dena is excited to embark upon the next leg of her journey through opening her own dance company.
