ECHO School of Dance Staff

Echo Waldron-Noble, Owner & Artistic Director

Echo’s dance education began at a young age with a variety of dance instructors in Southeast Idaho, including Dana Tueller Smith, Geraldine Bloom, Marva Lu Kesler, and Karen Brown. She continued her dance training at Ballet West Conservatory in Salt Lake City, Utah as well as Marius Zirra School of Ballet. Her life-long love for dance has given her opportunity to travel and perform extensively throughout the United States working with many influential artists and choreographers, notably Marla Hansen, Carl Rowe, and Joe Tremain. Her professional career has led her to perform and work with various dance companies, including Idaho Dance Theatre, Ballet West, Ballet Idaho, Drop Dance Collective, and Off Center Dance Project. As a member of the adjunct faculty of dance at Boise State University, Echo has also enjoyed teaching students at the collegiate level in the Theatre Arts Department. Her work with the “New Visions” program inspired her love and passion for dance education for the physically and mentally challenged. She has lent her own creative talents by choreographing for many local dance studios, the Boise State Gymnastics team, and various other children’s organizations. Echo’s directorship of the educational outreach program at Ballet Idaho’s “Learning Through Dance” makes her especially qualified to teach and inspire a love of dance as an art form to children of all ages and abilities. Now, as a wife and mother of 4, Echo is passionate about children and family.
