Kandee Allen started the national award-winning dance studio, Dance Impressions, along with her Mother, Vivian Colobella, on a whim in 1990. For over 26 years, she has been building her students a strong foundation of discipline, dedication and hard work, while instilling a love for the art of dance. She began her training at a very young age, and immediately began performing her talents in a tap dancing company. Kandee progressed into classical ballet, studying at the Murray Ballet Center, Royal School of Ballet and Ballet West Academy. Through a host of amazing teachers and choreographers, she began honing a critical eye for detail and exploring creativity through dance composition. She has had the honor to showcase her work in the 2002 Emmy Award-Winning Winter Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies; the opening numbers for the 2002 Paralympic Games and Spotlight Dance Cup Nationals; as well as for the Murray Arts Council; and the Ms. Wheelchair Utah and Miss America Pageants. Kandee has also served as lead choreographer for numerous award-winning high school drill teams, dance companies, cheer teams and musicals. She entertains a strong passion for musical theater and was inducted for excellence in the arts to Tayolorsville High School’s Theater Hall of Fame. In 2005, Kandee Allen co-founded Art with Heart, a benefit concert for Shriner’s Hospital, to which over $500,000 in proceeds have been donated to date.
Kandee is mother to three terrific teenagers and adores spending time with them. She thoroughly loves supporting each of them in the sporting events, musicals and performances that they individually love.
