Here at IDA we want to foster our students passion and help develop their talent. Every day we step into the studio we INSPIRE! 


Meet our Staff 


Eva Chavez 
Studio Owner/ co-Director/ Instructor 

Eva began her dancing journey at the age of 7 and since that day has never stopped! Ages  7-18 Eva danced at her local studio and contributed in both their Elite and Competition Teams. Dancing became her life and her motto became "Live, Love, Dance"! At 17 Eva went through one of the most challenging things to happen in her life. She survived a serious car accident and spent 5 months in the hospital and over 3 months in a wheel chair.  After this very horrific accident and very long road to recovery Eva persevered and her true love and passion for dance became her purpose. Dance became something she was determined to make her life and through hard work and her passion igniting the fire inside she got back into the studio! After getting back into the swing of her dance career Eva graduated high school and attended college where she realized once again the only place she could truly find happiness and feed the passion was to open her own studio. In April of 2015 Eva opened her studio in Lakewood, Colorado! She spent a short time there and decided to move closer to home. Inspire has grew to a bigger space here in Greeley, Colorado where we currently reside inside the Greeley Mall. Eva continues to look forward to mold and develop young minds and truly believes INSPIRING those to share passion for the love of dance... Well it gets no better than that. 


Vance Allan Smith 
Studio Manager/ co-director/ instructor

Originally born and raised right here in Northern Colorado, Vance grew up immersed in the arts and found his love for dance. As a young child he trained as a competitive gymnast which only contributed to his overall love and talent for the dancing and entering the competitive dance world. In high school he founded/choreographed/ and performed in the Synergy Dance Team. During this time he was also a member of his home studios Elite and Competitive Dance Teams. He also auditioned and was selected as a company member of a semi-professional dance company 8th Street Contemporary, based out of Northern Colorado. As a high school junior Vance was accepted, early admission, to The New School Eugene Lang as a Dance Major in New York City. After leaving New York City Vance found himself living on the east coast and managing Luxury retail stores, dance studios and hair salons. But anywhere he ended up, his heart always remained with the s dance world and molding young minds to share his passion for dance. In  April of 2022 Vance decided to move back to where he grew up and after a night out with a  lifelong friend, Eva, catching up, it only made sense to join her vision of Inspire Dance Academy and has quickly became part of the IDA family. Vance strongly believes in a strong technical background to lay the foundation for a successful future in dance. He believes the studio is a place to come and make mistakes and grow as a dancer but more importantly growing as young people into the amazing, respectful and talented individuals that lead us into a better future.
