Meet your new Boutique Dance Academy owners


A little about Mindy…
Mindy BlankMindy grew up in Southern California training with some of the industry’s most respected educators. She has extensive training in all types of dance including, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, tap, turns and leaps, musical theater, acro and specializing in technique and flexibility. She started dance at age 3 and competing at age 4.

By the time she was 17, she found her passion for teaching and guiding kids to help reach their goals! In 2008, Mindy and her mother decided to move to Castle Rock where she met Boutique’s founder, Laura Hinton and had the pleasure of teaching some of the current Boutique students!

Though she did return to California briefly, she knew when Laura decided it was time to make a change that it was the opportunity she had been hoping for!  It was the perfect chance to grow and spread her passion and love for dance! She is looking forward to this journey taking this studio to new heights!




A little about Dena…
Dena BlankDena lived most her life in California, but in 2008 decided to move to Castle Rock, CO and made it her home for 7 years. Even though she moved back to California briefly, she really missed Colorado and life she made here. Returning to Colorado is like coming home.

Her experience lies with:   Being a Teacher, Director of Dance, Studio Consultant, Liaison between Studio and City, and Office Manager. She can’t wait to take on this new journey in the dance world and share her knowledge with all of you!
