Beverly Mozzetti, Creator
Beverly Mozzetti started her dancing career in Chicago where she was raised. Her experience there took her to Butler University where she earned a degree in dance. She then went on to New York City where she was in the Ballet Company at Radio City Music Hall. She came to the Valley in 1971 with her husband and thought that our tiny town was in desperate need of a Ballet school. She started Mountain Valley dance and her first year she only had 7 students. Her creation has now blossomed in to a more than 500 student garden!
Aubrey Lucero, Director/Teacher

Taken master classes with the Colorado Ballet, David Taylor Dance Theater, Cris Judd, Barry Youngblood, Tyce Diorio and numerous others. Aubrey has given master classes herself at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois. Her choreography has been used by Creede Repertory Theater, Alamosa High School Show Choir, Center flag team and various Adams State University Produtions.
LouAnn Cheslock-Skinner, Teacher
LouAnn has been involved with Mountain Valley Dance for many years. She started taking classes as an Adult from B. Mozzetti and has not stopped since. LouAnn is a RN for Conejos County Nursing. She has been teaching with us for several years. Her child-like love of dance is what we love for our younger dancers to eminate.
Greta Polkowske, Teacher
Greta began her dancing career at Mountain Valley Dance and has been with us for many years. She has also danced at CSU in Fort Collins. Greta has a two year old son Kole and will be adding another baby this year! You have seen Greta in such roles as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Cinderella and most recently as Aurora in our production of Sleeping Beauty. She is stunning.
Katie Selin, Teacher
Katie has been a dancer with Mountain Valley Dance since she was a little girl. She is a graduate of Sargent High School and Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO, with a degree in Anthropology. While earning her degree she also was a part of Dance COmotion and taught classes at a local Durango studio. She had the pleasure of adventuring to Africa and Peru where she learned local dances as well as showed the natives how ballerinas move. We are pleased that she will be teaching jazz at Mountain Valley Dance.
