"My daughter has fallen in love with dance... I’m so glad I enrolled her at SDA! It’s been a wonderful experience!" -Amy, parent
"My daughter loves dancing here and the teachers are great!" -Ashley, parent
“Recently my 5 year old Jiji who has been at SDA for 3 years now, was recognized at her elementary school for her superior academic abilities. She is now being sent to a school for a full-time gifted program! At the meeting the teacher couldn't say
enough about how her dance training played such an important role in her academics, her discipline and her confidence, even made a point to write about it in her educational plan! Being a dance mom is definitely a lot of work but I am so pleased
with all the benefits and positive changes I see in both of my girls, as my 15 year old Jazzy is also an SDA student! Recommend SDA to anyone! Dance training is definitely life training!” - Shara, parent
“My daughter takes the 2 yo movement class with Mrs. Meghan. She is so wonderful with the kids! My daughter absolutely loves it and it's very reasonably priced! I highly recommend them to anyone!” -Gianna, parent
“This was my 4 year old daughters first time in dance. She was in the Petite Steps class. (Also my first time as a dance mom) I looked at all the schools in our area and we chose Sarasota Dance Academy because it was well-priced (the price included majority of gear needed, registration fee was reasonable, & included media from recital), and professional. The dance studio has a homey vibe while maintaining a good structure and discipline for her age group, keeping the kids engaged, having fun, & learning! Everything is so well-organized, and it was so fun & heart-warming to watch my daughter shine on stage during the recital! Thank you Ms Meghan & Ms Rebecca for working so hard to organize, being so thorough, teaching all the little ballerinas, and catering to our Amelia, we knew she could move, but now we see she has a gift to dance! —seeing her big smile on stage let us know we made the right choice! Bravo!!” -Liz, parent
“My 3 year old son loved doing the mommy and me class! Ms. Rebecca is wonderful and inspiring with children!” -Ashley, parent
“I have no hesitations in recommending SDA to anyone who is looking for professional dance instruction. From 3 year olds to adults, they treat everyone with respect and instill the proper discipline and dedication that dance requires. Rebecca and Meghan are some of the best in the business!” -Erin, parent
