 "While we don't have the opportunity to dance at your studio anymore, I still have nothing but wonderful things to say about your entire program! We came to NLDA to dance and when we moved we left behind a family. I learned so much about technique, expression, creativity, and grace during my time with you guys. Your entire staff has such a gift for solidifying a team mentality while still honoring the individuality that each dancer possesses and that's a truly unique and wonderful trait. You could ask any dancer at NLDA where they feel most comfortable and confidant and I am certain they would answer "the studio"! That's hard to find and so so valuable. Thank you for all that you do and for not only training dancers, but instilling a passion for creativity and allowing a safe place for expression! There is truly no dance studio like NLDA!" - Tori Wilfong
