My kids love going to their dance classes. They work hard and have fun! Everyone is kind and supportive. Choreography, costumes, and music selections are age appropriate. Instruction is scaffolded so that by the end of the year, students come so far even when they are considered beginners. Amazing!

Miss Susan’s love for dance and all her students are what keep families coming back year after year. She renewed my daughters love of dance with her encouraging words, warmth, and love of dance. She continuously encourages dancers of all genres to have fun and makes them believe they are amazing no matter what their skill levels are. ADA is your studio of choice if you want your child to develop skills, friendships, and the courage to do anything they want.

My daughter loved the dance classes ! Such a warm and inviting space. Despite her anxiety and shyness, she really enjoyed everything. She made new friends, sheovercame her shyness and the activities increased her mobility. As well, the recital was a beautiful first for us both, and truly was a confidence building experience ! As a momma of four, three of them boys, it was absolutely a wonderful experience ????
