"My 3 year old daughter loved going to ballet every week! Teacher Dakota was so kind, patient and creative with the group. I was so impressed. She was exactly the kind of teacher you want your children to be taught by. We absolutely adored our experience with Darrah Blanton Dance, and loved teacher Dakota!" - Maria

"Teacher Hayley provides a very positive, empowering environment for young dancers! She encourages creativity within each child, meeting each child where they are at regardless of skill level. She builds strong relationships with the children and promotes a class culture of inclusiveness, respect for others, mind-body awareness, positive self-worth, humor, and fun. The classes are great mix of creative and energetic movement, song, mind-body integration, ballet technique, and other forms of dance. We could not recommend Teacher Hayley more highly!" - The Bailey Family

"Once in a blue moon, an instructor like Darrah Blanton comes along. How lucky we are to be a part of her program!

Clearly, teaching is a passion of hers, not merely a job. She manages a class of young, hyper students and their eager parents with patience, grace, and a great deal of creativity. Ms. Blanton seems to have mastered getting students excited about learning dance and helping them focus. Our family is incredibly grateful for the talent she bestows upon our daughter.

She is truly a leader who manages to keep all involved. Not once this year have I felt uninformed about what has been happening in the class.

Ms. Blanton been a true blessing for Gabriella, and has had an extraordinary impact on her development." - Ramona Wessel

"My daughter first took a dance class with Darrah when she was 2 years old and she loved going to class each week. Darrah taught the class in a way that was developmentally appropriate, creative and fun for both the children and the parents participating. I was impressed with Darrah's poise and calming presence with so many young children running around!

We asked Darrah to come to my daughter's 3rd birthday party to lead the children in creative movement and dance. Darrah kept the children engaged and brought different activities and music for a very successful party. It was such a great party that we had her come back the next year for our daughter's 4th birthday too!" - Sheri
