Parents’ Perspective

I wanted to let you know that this was our first recital at KICKS and I have to tell you that I was so overjoyed when I saw my daughter on stage for the first time! You made that possible because you provided a worry-free dance year. I feel like I won the lottery of dance schools. I felt like I was on an all-inclusive vacation. You all thought of everything! From the recital costumes (including it in the tuition price and providing tights – brilliant). Prior to my family coming to KICKS, we would always have to provide a costume deposit near the holidays. Hands down, your staff is very organized and polite, too! I am speaking from over 10 years of experience of attending other dance schools in the area. You are considerate, caring and conscientious! You put so much time and effort into making it such an amazing dance year. I could go on and on but it is the details that show you are a first class dance studio! You put together all of you special ingredients to create such an awesome studio! I am looking forward to my daughter’s second year with your school.


Hi Kristin,
I am a first year dance mom, my daughter Ava was in Miss Joanne’s creative dance class.  I just wanted to compliment you on the great year we had at Kicks.  Your organization and communication is excellent and is very appreciated by this busy mom 🙂
My family really enjoyed the recital and everyone commented on how well run and enjoyable it was.  And my daughter was on Cloud 9 the entire week.  Dance has brought out a side to her that I didn’t even know she had!
Thank you,


Dear Kristin, John, Cheryl and Sue,
We have enjoyed being a part of the KICKS program and are so impressed at the wonderful job you all do! When we started our daughter here in pre-school we had no idea that we would still be a part of the program almost six years later. We so appreciate the leadership and help you all provide and the way you are accessible to us when our children come to dance. The teachers are not only skilled but kind and encouraging as well. We look forward to performances but most of all watching our girls grow in confidence, ability and character.

Students’ Perspective

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.


Dance to me isn’t just an activity or sport, it’s an escape. My last 10 years at KICK’S have been so much fun.  I’ve learned many new styles & techniques and am improving week by week & year by year. Dance at KICKS has been great; I love all the teachers & have made lots of friends. Thank you to Miss Kristin, Mr. John, Miss Sue & Miss Cheryl for always making me feel comfortable about me and making my dance experience great!
I’ve learned to be myself at KICKS and wouldn’t trade it for anything!


Unlike most sports, when I am dancing, I can express myself. On good or bad days, I would turn to dance. When I dance, I feel so happy and I can feel all of the hard work paying off. So basically, you could call dance my escape route, or my getaway, or my passion. Whatever you want to call it, it changed my life.You don’t have to be a good dancer to enjoy dancing; you just have to put your heart into it. I love dancing because it is something that I could put my emotions into, and I enjoyed moving to music.I will always remember these years dancing at KICKS.
