Verified review

It is so hard to find a tap instructor, let alone one that I really like. I love Lindsey! She is amazing and a lot of fun. I feel comfortable and I am always excited to meet with her and dig right in! I would definitely recommend VidaDance! I have only taken tap lessons but I am sure everything they offer is incredible.

Lindsey is the best! I was pretty scared to do dance lessons, but she has been patient (both with my bad dance moves and my fiance's constant questioning). :)

The Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Lenexa is a wonderful place to learn to dance. The instructors are not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also a lot of fun. They make dancing really enjoyable and exhilarating. One reason is that they listen to their students and make dreams come true. You can learn a lot of different dances, from traditional ballroom dances like waltz, foxtrot, and swing, to salsa, bachata, and even line dancing! For anyone who wants to learn to dance--whether for a wedding, just for fun, or for more serious events like dance competitions (which are very exciting!)--I can highly recommend this studio.

Our instructor, Tavier, was patient with our total beginner skill level. He was intuitive and encouraging and we progressed quickly with his guidance doing a modified Rhumba square. Tavier is all about positive energy. We think we can dance the couples dance at our daughter's wedding now without embarrassment (there was definitely that possibility).

Very good customer oriented experience. They took time to get to know me personally as well as what my goals were and why I came for a dance lesson. It was a very fun, positive, and engaging environment.

Shari choreographed our wedding dance, and was a wonderful teacher. We had a great time every lesson. It was also a welcomed break from all the stress of wedding planning. We would highly recommend her! She made two first-time dancers look and feel like pros.

My daughter has been a student at ADC for 12 years. She is 17. There is no better ballet education available in the KC area. I am a professional musician with an excellent understanding of what it takes to succeed in the Arts. The progress of the dancers at ADC is consistent and spectacular. They are well prepared to receive scholarships for summer intensive programs, as well as to dance after high school in college, or with professional companies. They can compete with *anyone* for these honors. Not just one or two excellent students a year are at this level. ADC works tirelessly to give every student the skill they need to succeed in dance. ADC is the training school for American Youth Ballet. Once a dancer is competent to dance with the Company, their performance opportunities, and the skills that come only with those performing opportunities, are unparalleled. By the time the dancers graduate, they have massive amounts of experience with performing difficult choreography and are ready to function on any stage. All of this excellence in training is accomplished by teachers who genuinely care about their students. The personality of the studio is disciplined but relaxed. It's a beautiful balance between the required focus and correction and nurture. The dancers are friendly and happy whilst working harder than anyone can imagine. The excellent leadership of the studio directors has led to great leadership from the more senior students. These kids are the best of the best and their dance education at ADC is a large part of the reason they are such fine people. If your child is very young and interested in dance, you could not possibly hope for them to be in a better, safer, more nurturing environment. They will learn a lot more than dance. They will learn about music and how to behave and channel all that wonderful energy they possess as little ones into something difficult but beautiful. They will do better in every aspect of their lives as a direct result of the learning they do at ADC. That is guaranteed. If you have an older child who is serious about dance, they need to be at ADC.

ADC is the best!! My daughter has been dancing at ADC for 2.5 years. She absolutely loves it. Her growth and development has been tremendous. She is challenged in a nurturing environment with high expectations. It is all about training and technique. They also have a youth ballet company which puts on exceptional productions to showcase all of their hard work. I highly recommend!!

Where to start!! I have never really danced before and for our wedding my then fiance wanted our first dance to be really epic. I was more nervous about dancing than getting married. Then we hired Deborah, and she not only gave us the basics of slow dancing, she choreographed our entire dance to suit our personalities and it WAS epic and I went from being super stressed over dancing in public to looking forward to our dance more than anything else that night! She was so personable and easy going AND extremely patient!! I can't race about her enough!!

Just awesome-I used the word "comfort" in our first talk, and that is exactly what she did-make us very comfortable & confident...which was NOT easy, as we were wanting an unforgettable 1st wedding dance production! But yes-VERY creative & quite patient, and I would certainly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn just about any type or style of rug cutting...

Josh played at our wedding reception and did an amazing job. Everyone from the guests, the wedding planner and the photographer had something positive to say. The wedding planner said this was the wedding with the most dancing she had ever seen. The photographer said this was the coolest dance party she had ever seen. Actually she said "wildest" but I think she got a little carried away there. We asked Josh to do a short dance lesson at the beginning of the reception, which turned out to be a big hit and got everyone out on the dance floor. From there, he kept the music going all night and our guests danced until it was time to leave. He played the perfect mix for us and our guests. We heard everything from great salsa hits to the YMCA song. We can't wait to renew our vows so we can have Josh DJ that reception too!

Aloha! My name is Arianna. I have just moved to the state of Missouri from the Big Island, Hawaii, where I have lived my whole life. Since I was a child, I was deeply involved in the Hawaiian culture, from learning to dance and practicing the ancient traditions and customs. Now that I live in MO, I plan to perpetuate the dying Hawaiian culture through dance. Not only is hula a fun and rewarding form of exercise, but it is also an ancient form of art! I am offering private classes in your own home at your convenience. Please email me if you are interested! Mahalo and thank you!

This level of dancer will receive the experience of performing on stage during our recitals in sessions where that experience is offered. This level of dancer might love to perform on a stage, but isn't ready to compete. Competition - for the dancer who wants to showcase his/her talent by competing with dancers from other studios at regional and national levels. This level dancer also performs in our recitals. Training at both levels can prepare dancers to audition for school drill teams, dance teams or cheer squads.
