What Our Dance Family Has To Say

Leading Dance Studios
“Joy Dance Academy is by far the best dance studio around. We have known the owner for several years and she is the one of the best dance teachers we have had. All the teachers are amazing. The main thing we love is the atmosphere. There is the perfect balance of structure and compassion. My daughter is challenged and pushed to be her best. She is also always encouraged and praised. I love that the teachers use positive reinforcement instead of harsh words and criticism. She always leaves class tired but with a huge smile on her face! So if you are looking for a dance studio Joy Dance Academy is the place to be!”

“My girls love JDA! They have found a dance family where they feel safe, happy and encouraged!  Ashleigh is not only a wonderful business owner, but an incredible dancer and all around person!  She loves those girls like her own and I wouldn’t choose any other studio for my babies! We love being a part of JDA!!!”

“Brooklyn has been in dance for 4 years. Since she has joined Joy Dance Academy I have seen so much growth! Ashleigh has been amazing in pushing her outside of her comfort zone. The family atmosphere you experience when you walk in the door is something that I have never experienced at any other dance studio. Of course I can’t leave out Miss Maggie. Brooklyn always hated tap. Honestly for the last 2 years she didn’t even participate in it. Miss Maggie asked Brooklyn to try the class and if she didn’t like it she could drop it. Guess what… Brooklyn absolutely loved it! I cannot thank Ashleigh and Maggie enough for encouraging Brooklyn to be the superstar that I knew she always was!”
