Ilene Hacker founded the Prime Time dance team in 1980 and has since been a strong icon here in St. George. It was created for dancers who dance because they love it - this class is for the “forever dancer”. Offering a blend of styles including Jazz, basic ballet, hip-hop, along with fun choreography. This class is sure to provide fulfillment, and performing opportunities all over the world!

Ilene Hacker has lived most of her life here in St. George. She participated in drill team during her high school years and continued to dance at Dixie State College and at Utah State University where she was one of the first students to major in Dance Education. Since then she has been a force in the dance world! Creating dance camps and pagents, instructing cheerleading and drill, and serving on the Alumni Board for Dixie State College; she has made her mark with the Prime Timers here in St. George. Her resume has even taken her all over the world! Whether was teaching aerobics on cruise ships or dancing in Japan, Ilene has had influence with many dancers. Some of the choreography for the Prime Timers she can credit to dance instruction at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Broadway Dance Center in New York City. And from instructors such as Frank Hatchett, Bev Brown, Sue Samuels, Andrea Brown and other’s found around the world.

 After 27 years of directing Super Steppers and Prime Time Performers, Ilene decided to "retire", and in March of 2007 she announced that Carolyn Phillips was the new director.

 Carolyn has been dancing for 20 years and loves to share her passion and gift with others.

 Carolyn was born in Flagstaff, Arizona and moved to St. George, Utah with her family when she was 8 years old and began her ballet and dance training with Ballet Arts of Southern Utah under the direction of Gretchen Rowe. She has worked with many local artists! This gave her many styles to teach to the Prime Timers such as ballet, hip hop, jazz, or lyrical.

 Today Misty Frisbey is the proud owner and director of the Prime Time dancers. She took on the team when Ilene Hacker was prepared to handover her legacy in 2009. With her sister Heidi Elison, they both create the best opportunities they can for the Prime Timers. She hopes to carry on the legacy that started with Ilene Hacker.
