Welcome to the Factory.....

Dance is our passion, our business, our life and it is our goal to inspire others to grow their own passion for the art of dance.  We strive to nurture each and every student and to give them the physical, mental and emotional tools to uncover their full potential as dancers and artists.  Truckee Dance Factory promotes strong self confidence, self-respect, discipline and commitment.  We encourage each dancer to find their own creativity and vision in order to excel in their art.   


TDF uses state of the art training equipment and technology to help dancers safely and quickly bring their abilities to the next level. 

Meet the owners.....

Owners Ryan and Padma Curren

Owners Ryan and Padma Curren, originally from Santa Cruz, CA. have been professional dancers, performers and teachers for more than 15 years.  They have been teaching dance to kids and adults in Truckee as well as in Reno, Tahoe and Carson City for the past 10 years. With full classes and year-long waiting lists they realized that there is a community calling for more dance! Both have been recognized for their stunning and powerful choreography as well as their ability to inspire dancers to be the best they can be.     






"Truckee is a special town because of the people, kids, and families that live here.  They are really what made us fall in love with this place and open our business here"


                                                                           -Ryan Curren

“Dancing is not just getting up painlessly, like a leaf blown on the wind; dancing is when you tear your heart out and rise out of your body to hang suspended between the worlds.”
