Acro is the fusion of classic dance technique and the precision and athleticism of acrobatic elements. Forte's acro-dance program follows the Acrobatic Arts syllabus and is taught by a certified instructor. The only equipment used during class is a variety of mats.
Ballet is the foundation of all dance and we are proud to offer ballet to all ages! From our Itty Bitty Ballet class to our more intense classes for older dancers, our students learn the importance of technique and body awareness through the lens of ballet.
Baton twirling is an artistic and aerobic sport that combines dance and acro skills, while manipulating one, two or three batons. Forte's twirling program aims to educate students about baton twirling, develop skills and provide performance opportunities in the community.
Jazz places an emphasis on strength, rhythm and flexibility! This social and performance dance style emerged in the 20th century from a blend of African and European styles of movement. In this upbeat class, students will learn about modern dance techniques and combinations.

Hi, I'm Colleen.
I'm the owner and director of Forte Twirl and Dance Studio in Atlanta, Georgia. I have more than fifteen years of experience as a coach, with certifications from the United States Twirling Association and a judging license with the National Baton Twirling Association. I'm certified to teach the Acrobatic Arts curriculum and I currently serve as the Twirling Coordinator for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Marching Band.
I started Forte Twirl and Dance Studio in 2015, working part-time after hours from my full-time job in digital marketing. It didn't take long to realize my passion was teaching and I left my traditional job in 2019 to open Forte's first brick and mortar location.
Since then, our team has grown and we've added exceptional instructors with professional dance experience. We've added new dance disciplines that complement each other and continue exploring how we can support our Recreation and Competition programs.
Dance and Performing Arts have given so much to me over my life, and that's our goal at Forte - to make a lasting impression on our students by fostering teamwork, self-confidence and grit. I hope you'll join us and see what dance can do for you.
We have so many exciting updates this year at Forte Twirl and Dance Studio. We have new class times available, we're offering Saturday classes for the first time ever, and we're expanding our dance curriculum to include Jazz for all ages.
PLUS, the one I'm most excited about - this year will be our first ever 'Forte Showcase'! At the end of the season, students in a ballet, baton or jazz class have the option to participate in an end-of-year-performance to show off their skills to friends and family! More details about our Showcase will be released this fall for enrolled students.
Come join us and learn more about all the fun we have planned for the 2022 - 2023 season!
