What Client’s Say

Valley Academy of Dance was a wonderful experience for both of my daughters! Abby who is now 13 and Caroline, 9, both started dancing at VVAD when they were three. The instruction over the years was exceptional and both girls continued there until we moved to New York City last year. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Vail Valley Academy of Dance! They provided excellent training in a nurturing environment that was such a positive experience for both girls over the years!

The level of teaching at this studio is one of the best you could find anywhere in the US. Katherine has been accepted to summer intensive programs for positions at the Nutmeg Conservatory of Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet, Joffrey School of Ballet in NYC, Harid Conservatory, Saratoga Springs Ballet & the Miami City School of Ballet.

I was amazed at the professionalism of the staff, the quality of the performance and the obvious proficiency of the dancers as they progressed through their training. I was so moved by it, I don’t think I have missed a VVAD spring recital since that first time, 28 years ago. I’m in awe of the many beautiful dancers I’ve seen grow through the program. When I eventually had children of my own, all three of them danced with the dance academy. Through dance, they developed confidence, self-esteem and learned discipline, time management, creative self- expression, a love for the arts, and a commitment and passion for following their dreams.
