Can you imagine with us?

At InnerSpark Performing Arts, we imagine a world where dance is a powerful tool for overcoming challenges and building resilience.

Where experienced and compassionate instructors are dedicated to helping each child achieve their personal milestones, no matter how big or small.


Where we create a positive and supportive community that empowers children to develop strong character traits that will shape them into compassionate and responsible individuals.


Join us at InnerSpark where your child will discover the joy of dance!


We let THEIR light SHINE!

In our creative dance classes, improvisation takes center stage, allowing your dancer to spontaneously respond to music, imagery, or prompts. This approach fosters self-discovery, body awareness, and the development of gross motor skills in your child. These foundational skills not only contribute to their success in academics but also in dance technique classes and sports.

Who We Are

At the peak of the global pandemic in October 2021, InnerSpark Performing Arts was founded by Mark and Christie Gonzalez.  Recognizing the challenges faced by working parents to provide high-quality enrichment programs for their very young children, the Gonzalez’ identified the necessity for a unique and fun early childhood dance program, all within the secure environment of preschools, early childhood centers, and childcare facilities.  In 2022, our first partnership with Masterpiece Christian Academy was born.

Christie is a proud graduate of UTRGV, a former public school educator, and was privileged to serve as a 21st Century grant administrator for IDEA Public Schools where she was named a state ambassador by The Afterschool Alliance.
