“In Spiritus” (In the Spirit) is the studio's professional dance company. It was formed under the direction of Jan Kocjan of The Dancespace School of Ballet in Page, AZ in 1999.

The company members have all received their training largely through The Dancespace. Jan Kocjan is a registered teacher of the Royal Academy of Dance and has been teaching in Page in her privately-owned studio for over 25 years.

"In Spiritus" presents two concerts per year at the Cultural Arts Stage. The Christmas Concert encompasses Sacred Dance, to reflect the spirituality of the season. The spring Concert, "Dances in the Desert", features In Spiritus I and II in Modern and Jazz styles, with choreography by Kocjan, alumni, guest artists, and the winners of the Summer Intensive at Lake Powell choreography contest.

The companies regularly perform at the Coconino Community College, the Helping Hands Agency's spring Art Festival, the city of Page's Fourth of July celebration, and other local events. "In Spiritus" has performed at special feasts at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Page, St. David Episcopal Church's annual "Lessons and Carols", and at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Gallup , New Mexico. In Spiritus is regularly presented on the Lake Powell Concert Association's venue.
