Wow, I read other peoples reviews and I'm just not sure we are at the same place. The studio is small and dingy feeling. The front desk person is not helpful or polite. The young lady teaching the class (when she was there) didn't seem interested in teaching the children just trying to get done with the class. She had a couple of substitutes who were lovely but didnt know the dance and had the older kids showing the rest of the class. The regular instructor went way to fast for most of the kids to follow. Maybe it's just the hiphop class that is so bad. I don't know and am not going to stick around to find out. Dari seems nice enough but I only saw her at the studio a few times. I would not recommend this studio for others.

Love, Love, Love - McKinney Dance Academy! Last fall was our first year at MDA and for a 3yr old, I was a bit nervous. Both the owner and teachers for my daughters' class were very supportive and super nice! The atmosphere is always friendly; owner, teachers, upper students and parents. We will definately be back this fall!

Hey Hey! MDA can not be beat by any other studio in the area! My 15 year old daughter has been training in the art of dance there for 12 years now! She absolutely LOVES it! We actually consider Dari, the studio director, to be one of the best mentors my daughter could have. As far as talent goes, (and you can judge talent by the end result!) the annual recitals each year get better and better! I think a fitting motto for MDA should be, "THE STUDIO WITH HEART!" because, what we want for our students is to not only LEARN the art of dance, but to LOVE the art of dance!

My daughter began dancing here several years ago and it's the best thing we could have done. The instructors are very experienced and full of knowledge. The self confidence my daughter has gained is AMAZING. Her teachers truly care about the progress of the students and offer advice and encouragement every class. Can't say enough good things about this place!!!!! I'm so glad we found it.

Can't say enough wonderful things about McKinney Dance Academy. Our daughter just celebrated her 11th annual recital at MDA this past spring. Because of the warmth we've experienced over the years, we have commonly referred to MDA as our "second home." The instructors are VERY EXPERIENCED (see website) and SUPPORTIVE of each dancer's goals and dreams. The teacher/student ratio is ideal. The studio as a whole is conservative, so you won't see dancers dressing too old for their age or hear inappropriate music in class. A huge plus in our opinion! If you are looking for a studio where your child will feel important, accepted, and able to learn and grow at their own pace, then MDA is the right place! We love it and are extremely proud of our daughter's success.

I think MDA is wonderful and the owner is a very friendly easy going person. She was wonderful to my daughter even if my daughter did not corporate which at 4 anything can go. We will return this fall. I was very impress and at the dance recital I was shock to see just how much my daughter did learn and how well she preformed. That is when she ask me to go back next school year. Her prices for dance appeal is alot better than what I can find in the stores and convenient instead of running around to different places to get it all. I would definitely recommend McKinney Dance Academy!!!!

We fell in love with the owner and teachers when my daughter was 3, and now she's still taking lessons 7 years later and loves it!! The instructors are very knowledgeable and caring. The number of students is just right...not too many where my child would feel like just another number, but enough to form many long-lasting friendships and be part of the amazing annual recital. It's very obvious that the owner and instructors' first priority is to make it a great experience for the students - not just to make a buck.
My daughter always looks forward to going to McKinney Dance Academy and she loves the variety of classes they offer.
My daughter's comments: I really click with the teachers. They are so helpful. Every day I learn something new.

We spent a stressful semester at MDA. The owner/instructor often got exasperated with the young children and was cold to the parents. Though she wasn't espcially warm to the students, she also didn't have high expectations for them. She did not seem to care about discipline or consistency. She was also unwilling to help us help our daughter. When we asked for a copy of the music she would be using for the recital so that we could practice with our daughter at home, she refused. By contrast, the studio we attend now provided us with not only a copy of the recital music, but also gave us a video of the dance to practice with at home. Our daughter thrived because of the extra practice we helped her with at home. One 45-minute class a week is not enough for most little dancers. They need to practice at home and the owner/instructor at MDA didn't seem to recognize or care about that.

McKinney Dance Academy was not the studio for us and we share our experience with everyone we can. We highly recommend Taylor Dance Academy.

My daughter has been taking classes at MDA for over 5 years (since she was 3 years old) and we are very happy there. The owner is kind, gentle women who has a smile and encouragement for all students-even those that are out-of-control and disruptive to the class. She never gets on the kids whose parents refuse to buy 'required practice dance wear'-even the ones who send their daughters to dance in bedroom slippers instead of ballet slippers.

We have been more than happy with all of the instructors my daughter has had at MDA. They all have been patient and encouraging, regardless of the girls' abilities.

I would recommend MDA to anyone wanting a fun learning dance studio!

**For the record, in reference to the comment below, the owner does not have a daughter, let alone one who teaches at the studio.

We have been a part of MDA for 2 years now and love the instructor. They are a little structured, but that is not a bad thing. Some kids need it, some don't work well with that. But for my daughter, it has helped her greatly and kept her focused. We would highly recommend MDA to any parent.

The owner is too structured for little kids. They are made to wear the same practice outfits and the teachers are pretty harsh with the little ones. I would not recommend for smaller children.
