TGG DANCE STUDIO
Dance is our lifestyle through progression - TGG Crew
A Non-traditional dance studio focused on the well-being and build up of students of all ages and abilities and the community as a whole. TGG Dance Studio offers classes for skill training as well as competition teams, and performance teams. A specialty of the studio is our underground training that takes dance back to a mentor-mentee approach. Pushing students to reach their highest peak of excellence and abilities is our goal as well as the build up what is known as the Idaho Dance Scene. We LOVE our community and constantly strive to make it a welcoming place for all to enjoy. - TGG Family
TGG Dance Studio is not like any studio you have been to. Upon walking through the street-front doors in downtown Nampa you will feel the energy and culture established immediately. The amount of love and care that each student receives emulates the exact reason why we call ourselves family.
A key note to the studio is our "$60.00 and done" deal. For $60.00 dollars a month a student is able to take whatever classes they like whenever they would like. This allows students to train to their full potential and broaden their repertoire of dance. We see no reason to limit any student to just one style of dance, and since TGG Studio was born from the underground dance scene we want all students to get the same, culture filled experience.
CLASSES WE OFFER
At TGG Studio we offer a variety set of classes that can be found nowhere else in the Treasure Valley. From our Animations, Ballet, Contemporary, Breaking, or many other classes you we will find the class that is perfect for you!

INDIGO DURAN (DOJA)
Indigo Duran has been dancing since their youth and has been a hard hitter since their meeting at TGG in 2019. While starting with styles such as K-Pop and Folkloric dancing Indigo was able to start the path as a dancer in a very interesting way. Indigo has a great amount of experience with the community and dance so far including competing in Monster of HipHop, East VS West Throwdown, America Onstage Nationals, Alumni of Ghetto Squad and even being accepted as a member of FullFledge Crew. Throughout Indigo's experience with dance they have been mentored and instructed by some of Idaho's best and many other great dancers from around the nation.

Stephanie has always been attracted to the idea of dance and has naturally moved to the rhythm of music. Her entire life, her siblings, and family have been naturally blessed with musical talent and that "it" factor that makes someone amazing. Stephanie although very young has worked her way to instructing at TGG and inspires many youth including her younger sister and many other fellow instructors. Steph is considered one of the most humble dancers around the TGG Family but also one of the Sauciest young bloods around. She has had the opportunity to compete in Monsters of HipHop, America Onstage Nationals, East VS West Throwdown, and is a current member of Idaho's very own, Ghetto Squad. With nothing but time on her side she continues to inspire students and teachers all around her and shares her love for dance in such a broad spectrum of dance that you would be surprised. It is not enough to say we are blessed to have Stephanie with us.
