My daughter started taking ballet at Performing Arts Limited when she was a little girl. She has been so full of joy since she returned to Performing Arts Limited. Thank you for inspiring her."
My daughter Samantha has been taking dance and acting lessons at Performing Arts Limited for 7 years. She loves it there, and so do I. Katie the Director and the rest of the staff are extremely talented and their love for teaching children beams with each lesson. Samantha has learned ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap, lyrical dance, and acting. She even had instruction in African dancing during summer dance camp. She currently takes 8 classes a week and has developed quite a love for the arts. Katie really supports Samantha's goals in her quest to be a triple threat- dancer, actor & singer. Samantha has already been in a commercial, a print add and a few Columbia College student films. I attribute much of her success to the training, encouragement, and direction she has received at Performing Arts Limited. Samantha recently asked me "What exactly is Katie to me? A teacher, a mentor, or a friend, I answered all three! Performing Arts Limited is professional but also has a definite family feel. I would highly recommend it for Dance, Music Lessons, or Acting."
