Identity Dance Company was founded locally in Springfield Oregon by Lindsey Cooper in 2003. Her desire was to create a dance company that makes a positive impact on the community. Then primarily a Hip Hop company, and originally named “Breakdown,” it was geared more towards college age students, and it quickly became popular.
With dreams of reaching more hearts with positivity through dance, in 2010 Lindsey took a leap of faith, moved into a larger studio and opened classes for all ages and teaching more styles, and Identity Dance Company was born. Since then, Identity has grown from the 18 Dancers that started, to over 200 Dancers and still growing. We now teach a variety of styles, including Hip Hop, Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz, Acro Tumbling, and others.
Identity Dance Company is recreational dance company that strongly believes that every child should be given the opportunity to dance. Our classes are designed to be fun and inviting to dancers of all ages and skill levels.
