Decoe’s School of Dance is a family owned dance company its most appropriately named because their owner and instructor Mrs. Decoe Gillette has had a burning passion for dance since she was a little girl; she is blessed with a wonderful talent that she has worked hard at cultivating for her entire life. Decoe is still developing, perfecting, and choreographing in order to become the very best she can be. She teaches and trains her students in all styles of modern dance.

The art of dance is both challenging and rewarding, and something Decoe does not take lightly. She is equally passionate about the training and educating of her students instilling in them an honest competitiveness which is so very necessary to compete in dance and in life as adults. Mrs. Gillette is accomplishing so much more than just teaching kids to dance, she lives her profession and strives to be an inspiration in her students’ lives, both her and her husband have dedicated their lives to working with children, she through her art of dance and he through the game of basketball.

Mr. Gillette is a High School basketball coach and is loved and respected by the students, faculty and parents alike. The Gillettes are both committed professionals contributing greatly in their own unique way to our wonderful local community.
