About Imagination Place
Imagination Place, home of AntiGravity® Fitness and Music Together® in Salt Lake City, is the realization of a fantastical dream and the fruition of decades of work of two imaginative people that live life to the fullest each day …. and commit to each other to never grow up! Paul Mulder and Darlene Casanova met while studying music, dance, and theatre at the University of Utah. They both enjoyed illustrious and successful careers in the performing arts.  Finding their way back to SLC in the late 90's and now with two boys wanted their children and the community at large to benefit from the joys of the creative process of the visual and performing arts.  So when their long-time friend and fellow child-at-heart, Christopher Harrison, creator of AntiGravity®, proposed launching his cutting edge AntiGravity® Fitness program in Salt Lake City Imagination Place was his obvious choice.


Paul and Darlene are the embodiment of all that we are naturally drawn to in relation to music and motion. They are passionately committed to providing affordable and playful music, movement, and artistic experiences to children and adults alike … including the instruments, inspiration, hammocks, and laughter to make those experiences lasting and memorable.


The Salt Lake Valley and the Wasatch Front has benefited from their goal to secure excellent teachers, engaging materials, and fun, developmentally-appropriate classes for all learning styles and abilities. The nucleus of creativity is their Imagination Place studio located at 1155 East 3300 South, in Brickyard Plaza Salt Lake City. Their inspiration toward harmony reaches far beyond their classes for Music Together or AntiGravity® Fitness classes at Imagination Place, and resounds beautifully in the homes, and therefore, the lives of all of us. Scores of families have been positively impacted by their mission … to create healthy relationships amongst families and communities by using the performing and visual arts to educate and strengthen the ties that bond us.

Each day, Paul and Darlene work to provide every child their birthright (whether that child is months old, or centuries old!) … to speak the language of music … to move in rhythm with their unique heartfelt dance… to abide in that joyful space of the unbridled personal expression of the musical and performing arts …. Imagination Place!
