PAM GLEAVE – Tap
Pam grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and couldn't wait to start dancing! At the age of 7, she stepped into her older sister's tap shoes, began taking lessons and fell in love with dance. She danced at her local ballet school throughout high school and started teaching tap at the age of 17. While pursuing a degree in Elementary Education at Westminster College, she continued to pursue her dance education at the University of Utah. She had the opportunity to work with some of the great tap masters; Al Gilbert, Charles Kelley, Roland Dupree, Joe Tremaine, Debbie Dee, Savion Glover and many more. After moving to Denver with her husband, she owned and operated her own dance school in Englewood, CO for nine years. Her students gave benefit performances, competed in many competitions and traveled out of state. It was at this time that Pam and her family were blessed with their only child, Hallie. Pam continued to teach all ages of dancers in the Denver metro area, and in January of 2010, she started teaching with the Academy of Colorado Ballet and is now so very happy to be teaching with Denver Ballet Theatre Academy. Pam lives with her husband and daughter in Foxfield, Colorado.
