Performing Arts limited is a true community partner. Not only do they provide great dance instruction to many of the students from Rogers School but they also work closely with the school to offer experiences that many students would not be able to receive otherwise. They have opened their doors for school events and are always willing to help Rogers School in any capacity. The enthusiasm that Kate brings to her dance classes is second to none. Watching her captivate an entire 8th grade classroom through dance is truly a remarkable sight. I look forward to continuing our partnership with PAL and eventually sending my own daughter to classes at PAL."
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."
