"Michelle Latimer Dance Academy is a special place. It's not just a place to learn to dance. It's a place where my child grew up into a confident, fearless artist - supported by positive energy, a drive for excellence and an expectation of collaboration, teamwork and kindness. The experience your child gets at MLDA is a direct reflection of the anchoring authentic values and genuine approach Michelle and her teachers take to their teaching. They are not only passionate about dance, they are passionate about teaching. My child's experience there was life-changing, and has allowed her to have the technical skills and the emotional tools to go on to pursue dance at a top college dance program and eventually as a professional - and love every minute of it. Thank you MLDA!" `~ Sarah Gieringer (mother of Olivia Gieringer; a freshman at USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance)
