  • I love this dancing school.  All the teachers are wonderful with the little ones.  It is my daughters 3rd year and I can't wait for her sister to start next year!

  • "This is my daughters 2nd year dancing with MMDA and we absolutely LOVE it! She has grown so much after her first year.  Ms. Mari and all of the teachers are amazing and you can see their passion in teaching these kids.  Even though we a still kind of new to MMDA, we already feel like family."

  • "MMDA sets the bar for dance studios. It's a loving environment for your child to learn and appreciate the art of dance. Their dance revue is truly a class act. Experience speaks volumes and that is indeed what the faculty at MMDA shares with their students. At MMDA we are FAMILY"
