Our Family

Churchill Family

The Churchill family joined the Rifle community in 1995 and the children, Michael, Jordon, Landon, and Taylor began attending classes at The Academy of Dance & Gymnastics shortly thereafter.

Since then, the family has grown and the business evolved into what is now ArtillumA Dance Company.  The family expanded with the marriages of Michael to Shandice, Taylor to Kevin, and Landon to Rachel, as well as the births of Kia, Kaden, Brindle, Lincoln, Kellen, and Miela.

Everyone in the family lives in Rifle, and enjoys contributing to the community through their work at the dance studio, in addition to their “real” jobs.  😉   Michael is the General Manager for Rifle Community Television, Shandice & Rachel are full time moms, Jordon is a 911 Dispatcher, Landon & Kevin are local paramedic/firefighters, and Taylor and Lynn manage the studio full time (and then some!)

As the years go by, families grow and times change, but the heritage and spirit of the studio are alive and well, firmly rooted in a desire to enrich the lives of young people through the art of dance.
