We love our dance families… and want to share what they love about us too!


“Being a dancer is what gets me through life. No matter what I’m feeling dance is a way to express myself. Amanda’s Academy of Dance is more than a dance studio to me, it’s home. The faculty is simply amazing, they welcome you with open arms. At AAD you’re not just another dancer, you’re part of our family.”


“Realizing that this is my last year of dance… After 15 years together I consider you girls my sisters I couldn’t ask for a better group to grow up with. Thank you to Miss Amanda! You have been my role model since I was 2 years old, you taught me that being myself and doing what I love with people I love was the most important thing in life. You laughed with us, cried with us, screamed from the side and most importantly you were there every step of the way. I’ll never go a day without thinking about our memories together.” 


“Thank you, Miss Amanda for taking the time out of your busy night to sit with our little dancer and make her feel better about going into dance. She loves to dance!  I think this week will be much better thanks to you focusing your attention on her. I really appreciated it and it just shows how much you truely care about ALL your dancers! Thanks again and we will see you on dance night!”


“WOW!!! That is what I thought leaving Viterbo on Saturday. The performance was spectacular. Very professional and well organized. You, and the entire staff, should be so proud of what you have accomplished. Thanks for giving our children such an amazing experience!”


“I just wanted to send a note to let you know how appreciative I am of the opportunity you have given our daughter to participate in dance classes at your studio.  She and I watched the level 3 performances last night and I was so impressed (again) at what the girls have achieved.  All I can say is “WOW”!  Thank you, thank you, thank you….”


“Miss Amanda, Miss Annika and the entire AAD staff truly know what it means to care about their dancers. Every week we travel to the studio, from 30 minutes away, eager and excited for our children to learn from their staff. They come home happy, inspired and motivated to dance and are simply a pleasure to be around. I can only hope that one day they will grow into the same role models we witness at AAD. Thank you!”
