Testimonials

“We love all the self-esteem building and graceful movement that goes along with dance classes at IPAC.  Your school has been a huge confidence builder for my child. She’s gained a circle of friends outside of school and church, and wonderful, caring adults in her life outside of school and home.”

“My daughter, now 12, has been dancing with Miss Katie and Miss Sylvia since IPAC opened its doors. Since IPAC started offering music, she has added drum lessons to her repertoire. Her teacher, Tetsuya Takeno, aka ‘Mr. T’, is patient, encouraging, and passionate about his craft. We’re so happy that IPAC selected a percussion instructor who exemplifies their mission of inspiring students through the arts!”

“The vision that Inspiration Performing Arts Center has is so very right-on. It’s about teaching girls and boys to love and respect who they are, learning to listen to the beat in their soul, and to dance their hearts out! We all know the studios where it’s more about the make-up, costumes, and trophies then it is about the joy of dance and learning a skill that will last a lifetime. When I watch my daughter’s class at IPAC, I see the expressions of joy, creativity, and self-confidence flying about the studio. As a gifted dancer and teacher, the inspiration Miss Katie imparts on her dancers will stay with them a lifetime.”

Annie H., Senior Performance Troupe Dancer, shares with us how IPAC’s new mentoring program has positively impacted her life, “I love getting to be a part of the girls’ first years of dance. Feeling like I can inspire them is wonderful. Mentoring is a wonderful and instructive experience.”

“I so needed this! It was the perfect mini-getaway for me and my girlfriends! I can officially shake it thanks to you guys! Thanks for a wonderful night, it was a blast!”

- Kristine R., Women’s Night Out attendee

Where do I even begin?!  My children are both enrolled in classes at IPAC and absolutely LOVE their time in vocal lessons, dance classes and acting!  Your staff is wonderful, the facility is just beautiful, but the best part – the car ride home after classes hearing my kids’ pure joy and excitement for the arts.  Thank you IPAC for continuing to inspire not only my kids, but all the kids and adults in your programs!  We love you guys!

“When my daughter comes home from acting class, she is all smiles. She loves acting out different characters. Acting classes at IPAC has been a great way to “release” after a busy week at school. Thanks for a fun opportunity.”

- Julie C.

“The acting class is AWESOME!”

-Dancer & Acting Student, age 9

“We love that she has such a great time! I love your philosophy! I love the no make-up, appropriate clothing and dance moves. I’ve been to other studio recitals and have felt embarrassed by what I have seen! If it weren’t for a place like IPAC, my daughter would NOT be dancing.”

“I love acting. We are going to act out a REAL story for our families!”

- Eloise, age 4

“My elementary age daughters both dance at IPAC. We came to IPAC because of their dedication to keeping the music and costumes age appropriate. We are staying at IPAC because of their passion for children and commitment to personal growth through the arts.”

- Courtney M.

“Ms. Sylvia is a wonderful teacher! My daughters love all of the new groovy hip hop moves that she is teaching them, and I enjoy laughing and talking with her between classes. She takes the time to make a connection with the students while also teaching them the discipline of dance. She’s an amazing dancer, and a gifted teacher. I’m so glad that Ms. Sylvia is a role model in the lives of my girls.”

- Dana P.

“I like learning dance with Miss Katie because she is such a nice teacher. The tap songs are really fun!”

- Elisabeth, age 7

“Ms. Alex is an amazing teacher! She breaks down even the most complicated steps to make them simple to learn. She has the talent and ability to translate music into movement. This is my first year in Belly Dance and Cardio Hip-Hop and although I feel like a beginner, Ms. Alex makes it easy and fun! I love IPAC!!!”

- Jill K.

“We enrolled our daughter in Inspiration Performing Arts Center purely by chance – but are so glad we did! Elizabeth has been taking dance for 6 years and loves every minute. IPAC’s approach is refreshing – they focus on learning the fundamentals of dance and having fun at the same time. There is none of the pressure or craziness that I hear about other dance studios.”

- Justine K.

“My girls started dance six years ago with Inspiration Performing Arts Center (previously Inspiration Dance Academy). They now both love to dance whenever they can and have gained the confidence needed to think of themselves as dancers. We are SO happy we found IPAC!”

- Sarah D.
