Parent Testimonials

Keli Davis, Little Rock, AR:

I have two daughters – both of which began dancing at the age of 3. We have had the opportunity to experience a handful of studios over the last 16 years due to living in different areas of the state and country. I feel certain there is no better studio out there than Dance Dynamics in Little Rock, AR. I can honestly say this based on our own experiences at other studios both locally and in other states and being entrenched in the dance community over the last several years. Both my daughters improved exponentially when they began taking classes at Dance Dynamics. I have observed dozens and dozens of competitions from dance to pageants to recitals to various auditions over the years. Latisha Daniel and her staff work tirelessly to make sure their dancers are fully prepared and perform to the very best of their abilities. Whether you are looking for a once a week recreational experience for your child, a full load of technique classes or to have the opportunity to be a dance company member (and even develop a skill set to pursue a future in dance), this studio is the place for you!

Rhea Middleton, Little Rock, AR:

My two daughters have both been a part of Dance Dynamics for several years. I have been extremely impressed with the experienced, professional, dedicated staff and have watched my girl’s abilities, confidence, poise and passion for the art of dance grow by “leaps and bounds.” The dance classes at Dance Dynamics are very structured and taught by instructors that are experts in each specific discipline. The competition dance company has also been a very positive experience for our family. No matter the venue or level of competition, Dance Dynamics teams and individuals always seem to place at the highest levels. The time, dedication and commitment of the dance company instructors is unprecedented in Central Arkansas!
