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!

Jordyn has been dancing at Mountain Valley Dance since she was 4 years old. Jordyn a ballet dancer asked me to watch a piece she had choregraphed for a school talent show and I was blown away at the hip-hop/freestyle dance that I saw! What a fresh new groove! I asked Jordyn if she would like the challenge of teaching and she accepted. Jordyn is a Senior at Centauri High School where she is also involved in sports and student council.
