My daughter now almost 14 has been training at AOD since she was three years old. She dances over twenty hours per week so this is truly her home away from home. The confidence that is built here is wonderful. My daughter is part of the competition team and has been since the beginning of AOD. So many memories and so much fun! Lilly does an amazing job of hiring extremely talented choreographers for the studio. Lilly is very loving and cares so much for the kids. My daughter has grown into a beautiful dancer thanks to the love, support, and education at AOD. It is so important for us as parents to know that our children are not only doing what they love to do but, are in a safe environent filled with warm and loving friends, teachers, and role models. We were just on a two week break after completing the last recital (which was extraordinary!) and my daughter was already going through dance withdrawals. I would catch her running through choreography. She was thrilled to get back to AOD for the summer dance program where she is assisting this year. Miss Jen, and Miss Ahjalia are so inspirational. We are blessed to be part of such a loving dance family...

This studio strikes a balance between dancers who will become pros and kids who just need or want to dance. For the recreational dancer, it's probably the best studio a dancer could go to because they'll have access to pro-quality teaching and a passion for dance as an art-form. For the young dancer that has that something special and demands the skills, a bar set high enough, and that extra mentoring and skilled, perceptive arts training, Academy of Dance has that in spades. We've watched young dancers blossom there into working professionals and even one currently starring on "So You Think You Can Dance!" Go to any of their annual shows in June and you'll find choreography that makes you wonder where they found dancers so young who can do those sorts of amazing performances.

The aspect of this studio that most impresses me as a Dad and that fills my heart day in and day out is the director and her teaching staff. They have working pros teaching there and it shows in how the dancers focus and value their classes. The Director hails from a storied dance career whose heart and soul is so wholly focused on sharing her love and passion for the art of dance that she only hires the finest teachers to impart skills and passion to the students. Ms. Alexander is one of those special special artists who can't help but give back to an art that has blessed her. I deeply honor and respect that about her. My daughter has only ever had access to amazing professionals who can genuinely and artfully teach and be authentic mentors for her. They are demanding of her when they need to be, expect her to work up to her potential, and they daily and continuously inspire her and care deeply for her. Her performances are the proof of her teacher's care and quality for her as a person and as a young artist. When a parent can find a place where their child can discover their soul, their talent and develop realizable aspirations, it is an amazing moment. I feel like I have those moments every time I walk into the Academy of Dance.

I have a friend who goes to classes here and she just loves the place. I've seen her dance too and she can do so much. The costumes for recitals are always beautiful and the performances are very well done.
