         Marla Bradley, Owner, Business Manager, Artistic Director Marla is administrative manager in the Iron River location on Mondays and in the Crystal Falls location on Tuesdays. Marla coached the Forest Park High School and Middle School Dance Teams for 8 years.  During that time, the Dance Teams have been to many competitions and won many awards.  Marla focuses on student’s abilities and the way each dancer fits into the team as a whole.  Each student’s special ability is emphasized to show that every person has different strengths.  Marla believes it is very important that a team should work together to help one another strive to make each other better, not only as an athlete, but as a person.  Being on a team teaches children much more than just the sport; it can teach them to work hard, be punctual, work well with others, and to support their teammates. These are the characteristics that will be found at Inclusion Dance.  Marla wants to see everyone included!  Fairness isn’t giving everyone the same thing.  Fairness is giving everyone what they need to succeed.  Not everyone will be treated the same because not everyone is the same.  Treating everyone fairly and including them is important at Inclusion Dance. 2019-2020 is Marla’s third season owning and managing Inclusion Dance.              Sari Jacobson, Head Teacher Sari teaches the recreational dance, performance team, musical theater and tap dance, the Iron River dance competition team, and the Golden Grovin’ and Movin’ class!
