01:26 03 Sep 21This dance studio has made such a difference in my daughter's life! When she expressed interest in taking classes, I searched for a dance studio that would foster her love of the discipline of ballet, etc, and teach her the proper terminology and techniques. I also wanted a studio that emphasized that dance is fun, that it's joyful, and that it wouldn't be so intense that it wouldn't be fun. I was looking for "rec league" dance. I found a highly professional studio run by experts that are well versed in the mechanics, discipline, and techniques of dance, that had high expectations of their dancers, but who had also created a fun, exciting, dynamic, family-style, loving, joyful environment. It feels like their students are their joy, and dance is their medium. I absolutely love that my daughter attends Greendale Dance Academy. She is hooked for the long haul- and is giddy with excitement when it's a dance day. She's normally very impulsive and a little feral, but in dance class, she is focused, attentive, and a hard worker who is proud of her control over her movements and her body, and is looking forward to learning french :)Enroll your kid. They will love it. Melissa and Pete and their team run an incredible academy. My only regret is we enrolled her at age 7, and not earlier! Her confidence has blossomed, and she adores her teachers and classmates, and takes great pride in her work both in class, and in demonstrating what she learned each night at home after class. They consistently go above and beyond, and we are so thankful for them. Thank you, guys, for being the exact place my kid needs, and bringing her so much joy.

18:54 31 Aug 21My daughter has been dancing here for more than five years, and has always been happy with her classes and her teachers, and we have been happy with the instruction she gets. They care a lot about their dancers and their families and work hard to make sure their school is accessible financially, answer all our questions (and I ask a lot!) and make sure that my daughter can meet her dance goals, which is just what we want. Greendale Dance is the best.

13:52 31 Aug 21Our 2 daughters have been dancing at Greendale dance for years. Our oldest has been there for 12 years.

17:06 08 Jun 21Much thanks and appreciation to another year of dance! This was my youngest daughter's first year of dance. She absolutely loved and looked forward to each lesson! Her Creative Dance teachers were wonderful! Both of my daughters were thrilled to dance in the studio's first outdoor recital. The amount of effort, time, and care it took to make it all possible just demonstrates the high quality studio of GDA! Looking forward to Summer dance and definately returning in the fall!
15:52 08 Jun 21We have always been grateful for the amazing staff and community at Greendale Dance, but the challenges provided by COVID have made us appreciate it even more. They have done an amazing job keeping the dancers safe this year, providing a fun environment despite necessary precautions, and showing true care for the dancers. It is clear they have put in enormous amounts of time, energy and care into adjustments during the pandemic, and we could not be more appreciative that dance has continued in a safe and enjoyable way. Our daughter truly loves this place.
15:39 08 Jun 21My daughter has been here for 5 years now and loves the GDA family! The teachers are awesome and truly care about her dancers! We look forward to many more years at GDA!

19:17 24 Jun 14My daughter has taken the Creative Movement class at Greendale Dance for the past two years and she loves it. The recital is so well put together and organized. My daughter will definitely be attending again in the fall!
17:54 08 Apr 13I did not have a good experience at Greendale Dance Academy. I will not go back.
17:30 08 Mar 13Greendale Dance Academy has been nothing but a positive experience! My daughter started dancing there in the creative movement classes when she was three. She is twelve now and is part of the competition team. Over the years she has built many friendships and learned a great deal about dance techniques. More importantly, she has learned what it means to be a team player. I have also noticed a tremendous boost in her self confidence. That is a direct result of the teaching staff. Whenever they speak to her it is in a positive tone with praise and support. They have ALWAYS been kind and respectful to myself and my daughter. I trust them completely and have referred four other families to GDA. Those families have been extremely happy and haven't looked back since. Miss Melissa and her staff are child centered, family focused, caring and VERY professional.
19:04 05 Feb 13I cannot believe what happened on 1-26-2013. I was sitting at the waiting area watching my daughter dance in the room. My daughter was sneezing and got snot on her face. Rather than help her to clean it or send her out to me, the teen girl instructor and Melissa instead laughed at my daughter.When the class was over I asked Melissa if I could talk to her about what I saw on the camera. Without hesitation, she yelled "GET OUT OF HERE " then she pushed me and slammed the door. This was also witnessed by other stunned parents.
13:27 25 Apr 12My youngest daughter 3 years old dances here, and I love the fact that the classes are not "competition" level. But I do see that if she wants to continue there are classes here for when she is older and wants to be more committed. The staff is great. I appreciate their commitment to ALL dancers. GDA accommodates everyone, thank you.
Welcome to our 28th Dance Season! This year may continue to have many challenges, but we feel confident that we are prepared to meet them head on. This past year we followed all state guidelines and never closed our doors and never had to hold classes virtually
. We ended the dance year with an amazing outdoor recital under a tent. The weather was perfect and we thank Holden Chapel for allowing us to use their field. This summer our dance classes were almost all SOLD OUT. We are excited for this new dance year and are ready to get back to dancing! I hope you will join us this year for dance!!
