About Us

Starstruck Academy of Dance was founded by Lisa Holtz Odell in 1984. We have grown to become one of the most respected dance schools not only in Colorado but also in the country. Dance Spirit magazine named Starstruck one of the Top 50 Studios in the country in 2004. We offer classes specializing in Jazz, Lyrical/Contemporary, Ballet, Hip Hop, Tap, Turns & Jumps, Poms, and Little Rockstars. We have classes for both the recreational dancer and competitive dancer. Over the years Starstruck’s competitive company has been awarded numerous national titles, sportsmanship and choreography awards.  Alumni have gone on to dance on nationally ranked college dance teams, broadway, television, movies, professional dance companies, music tours, and more.

Starstruck is proud to work with dancers from all over the Metro Area including Centennial, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Parker, Castle Rock, Aurora, Greenwood Village, and surrounding communities. 

We are proud and honored to have been voted 2017 Denver A List winner for Best Dance Studio.
