Barb Dettlaff

If you can’t tell, I have a passion for dance. I hope to instill that same love for it in my students at ATB!

I’m Miss Barb, otherwise known as Miss Kim’s mom. I have been in the Arts industry my whole life. I hold a degree in performing arts and performed, directed, and taught back in the day.

ATB was our family's dream and together we created this environment which is rich in culture, passion, outstanding teaching and most of all love. We proudly handed over the direction of the studio to Kim, BUT I needed to stay involved. You might see me at the desk, coordinating all of the costumes for both competitive and recreational dancers, trolling the halls or in a room.

When I am not at the studio, I am Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Operations for a local bank. But my favorite role is Oma to my beautiful grandkids: Kaitlyn, Sam, Maicey, and Kamdyn. I am thrilled to see Kaitlyn perform in shows, watch Sammy play ball, of course watch Maicey on stage as she competes for ATB, and just hang with Kamdyn exploring the life of a toddler. I can’t forget my wonderful second half, Mr. Mike and my two beagles: Murphy and Winnie.

Please immerse yourself into this family we call ATB!
