Adrian Goto

Adrian grew up in beautiful Southern Oregon near Crater Lake. She came to Idaho her junior year of high school where she met her husband Jeremy. After graduation they attended Boise State University, married in 2006 and now have two beautiful daughters who are passionate about dance.

Adrian loves each and every dancer at Impact and prides herself in knowing them on a personal level. She boosts the family atmosphere and makes sure everyone feels at home. She believes that with the proper nurturing, time, passion and instruction, anyone can be a dancer. She surrounds herself with talented instructors who share in her vision.

Before owning the studio Adrian was an Impact parent herself. What she most loved about the studio was the instant family atmosphere that could be felt from the moment you walked through the door. It stood out above all others. It was that feeling that drove Adrian to purchase the Studio Summer 2015.

As the owner Adrian wants Impact to stand out not only for its outstanding dance program but also the focus on integrity, work ethic, compassion, and a loving encouraging atmosphere.

Alex McLaughlin

Showteam Hip Hop Choreographer, Varsity Showteam Coach, Beginning/Intermediate Hip Hop, and Cheer Instructor

Alex McLaughlin

Alex McLaughlin is a dancer, choreographer, and seasoned instructor based out of Boise, ID. Her passion for dance has allowed her to experience many different styles and travel abroad developing her craft. She teaches hip hop, jazz funk, cardio grooves, pop performance, improvisation, and varying conditioning and strengthening classes. Alex is a part of CoreVette Dance, a girl-power group of female creators, that has shared the stage with many artists and collaborated with Treefort Music Festival, Yoga Fort, Shambhala Music Festival, Jack’s Urban Meeting Place, Red Light Variety Show, Shades of Black Multicultural Showcase, Fusion Fashion Week, Boise Music Festival, Boise Green Festival, and the RAW artists showcase, keeping her dance career well rounded in all areas.

Alex believes that the power of movement lies not in the fame or attention, but in the exchange that can come from dancer to audience, dancer to dancer, and dancer to self. “I believe the purpose of the natural artistry we are all birthed with is to express the depths of our being and to share them with the world. Art has a power unlike any other. It is our duty as dancers to shine our light, whatever wattage or color, with everyone we meet and illuminate the corners of those who have not yet found theirs.” Motivated by her student’s and fellow teacher’s individual expressive potential, she infuses her classes with something more than counts, insuring that everyone leaves feeling more empowered and inspired to unleash their unique power. Art, dance, music, and the way they fuse together through the community in Boise has inspired Alex to spend her creative energy developing the urban movement culture of The City of Trees, alongside CoreVette, and bring up the next generation of gem state movers.
