My name is Brandi Donelson, owner and head instructor for Full Throttle Dance Company. This is my sixth year with my own company, but I have been teaching dance for over 15 years!!! I have an amazing husband, and family which is my backbone for all of this. Gage and Brielle are my two incredible kids, and I am also a part-time dental assistant!


Dance and performing have always been my passion and being on stage makes me feel alive! I grew up dancing under the amazing Claire Evans, and studied mostly jazz and tap. I began teaching jazz and tap at Glenwood Springs Dance Academy in 2009 and started my competition career in 2013, which has grown to be my favorite. I love to be an inspiration and great role model to all of my dancers and I strive to make them the best dancers that they can possibly be. We are all about having fun, but taking home a 'WIN' while we are at it! I cannot think of anything else I would rather do in my lifetime. Pinching myself that my dream has actually came true!
