My name is Brandi Donelson, owner and head instructor for Full Throttle Dance Company. This is my ninth year with my own company, but I have been teaching dance for over 17 years!!! I have an amazing husband, Bub, and he as well as the rest of my family which is the 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!
