I highly recommend ADA if you are considering dance for your child. My daughter has been a student there for eight years. She is currently in their Junior Company. They have performed at RiverFest, Love Lights A Tree, R. T. Jones Memorial Library, and Canton Theatre. Her teachers at ADA have consisted of teachers trained directly at ADA, one from The Atlanta Ballet, and one from The Georgia Ballet. It has always been a positive experience that my daughter can look forward to and we can feel good about!
“My daughter, Deanna, marked her 10th anniversary with Academy of Dance Arts this year. Reflecting back, it is clear to me that learning to dance at the Academy of Dance Arts has instilled a degree of confidence in her that will endure into her adult life. The patience and dedication shown over the years by your staff has made knowing you and your school a true blessing for our family.”
“Congratulations on 30 years of training young ladies into beautiful dancers. We just had to write you a letter to tell you how wonderful the recital was this year. With 4 girls taking dance, we saw both recitals. They were both so entertaining and the variety was great. It is amazing to watch, not only our girls progress, but the other girls progress as they mature and grow into beautiful dancers. We are so pleased with ADA and look forward to many more dance performances.”

“I am the satisfied mom of a dancer, who is beginning her 15th year of study at the Academy of Dance Arts. I love ADA because dance in its pure, classic forms is taught there… When you choose ADA for your dancer, not only will they receive instruction in the classic dance forms, but they will have courtesy and gentility modeled for them by the fine teachers there. In this edgy world there are not many places a parent can take a precious daughter to reinforce poise and composure. ADA is such a place. Dancers there receive dance instruction in a positive, polite atmosphere. Grace and confidence develop from continued study of dance in this environment. Your dancer will gain a spring in her step and a twinkle in her eye!
I heartily recommend the Academy of Dance Arts!”
