Parents & Students Alike Love KICKS!

Just see below for a review from one of our students. You can find more feedback on our Testimonials page.

Dancing has played such an important role in my life.  Dancing has allowed me to express my emotions through music and movement.  Through my years at KICKS I’ve learned the techniques of many disciplines of dance but most of all I have learned confidence. The confidence I gained through dance allowed me to explore other aspects of the performing arts. I cannot imagine my life without dancing, singing and acting and it all started with a ballet and tap class with Miss Bethanne. The relationships  that I have created through my years at KICKS mean the world to me.I am proud to call the KICKS family, my family.
