Testimonials

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

 My daughter, Jaylah started dance last September, and she loves it. She started with two classes, and now this year four. I love that the teachers are patient, understanding, and know what it means for a village to raise a child. They are not just about the dancer, but the family. Their dedication and passion for dance is heartfelt. I am truly grateful, thankful, and blessed to be apart of the D.A.T. family.

DANIELLE DAVIS

Thank you D.A.T. family for teaching, loving, encouraging, pushing, and uplifting my daughter. Dakota is coming into her own. She has blossomed to be the butterfly I knew she could be. D.A.T. was a life saver for Dakota. Not only did they teach her how to dance, but her CONFIDENCE is everything now! Because of D.A.T. she's able to be herself! Thank you D.A.T. family for all you guys do for my daughter.

ASHLEY HILL

We love D.A.T. Dance Studio! It's a family oriented dance school that makes both children and adult dancers feel comfortable in the skin they're in! They are professional, organized, and extremely encouraging! I saw my daughter blossom so much in just one season! We can't wait for the fourth season to begin!

OCTAVIA TOKLEY

D.A.T. Dance Studio has always been a wonderful experience. All dance teachers create a positive, structured, and above all, fun environment for the dancers. Truly a second home for me and Ava.

TANISSA REED

My daughters LOVE D.A.T. Studio. This was their fisrt year with D.A.T. and they had very basic dance skills when they started. They thrived from start to finish even when faced with the adversities of COVID-19. They gained more self confidence in their dance and always look forward to class on Saturdays. The environment is friendly and welcoming, and they are excited to start their second year of dance.
