What matters most to us...YOUR SUCCESS!
Lisa Tuska BW Headshot_edited.jpg


Owner & Studio Director

Director Tuska is the founder and owner of Colorado School of Dance, Colorado Youth Ballet Company and the Nutcracker of Parker. She has served Parker for 25+ years.  Tuska has been involved in dance and entertainment her entire life, and today is a leading consultant in the dance industry.  After college as a collegiate dancer, she found her passion in teaching, and opened her first dance studio in Wilmington, OH, which she sold at the age of 26, with 400+ students.  She received her Dance Teaching Certification from Ohio University, and a B.A. from Wright State University.  She is best known to the students as "Miss Lisa," and believes every dancer deserves a home studio to dance...and to LEARN, CREATE, INSPIRE & PERFORM.  Students who studied under her have gone on to The Juilliard School, Boshoi Ballet, received dance scholarships to Chapman U & Oklahoma City University, as well as become dance directors, studio owners and teachers themselves.  She is blessed by the collective efforts of her  longtime team, her husband & business partner of 25+ years, and her 3 amazing kids, who all grew up dancing.



First and foremost, we are a dance family of professionals who strive everyday to make a path forward for our young dancers in both the social and physical world of dance.  Many of our faculty have been with the company for more than 5-10-15 years, and together, have built a solid foundation for our dance families. Our company culture is to serve with kindness, inspire each other and lift others up.
