"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 excels in building confidence in her students in a gentle yet firm manner. 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.

We hired Ms. Blanton to recently host our daughter’s, Gabriella’s, 4th Birthday Party. She arrived exceedingly prepared for the event. There could have been no better gift to our daughter than to have Ms. Blanton lead the festivities. What a sight of swirling tutus in our house! Great memories. It was so much fun that even my husband couldn’t resist joining in (sans tutu).

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
