My kids love thier dance classes here. Great communication with the staff and the recitals are such an amazing experience. I will never send my kids anywhere else! Such amazing offerings and a staff that is second to none. Best classes available in the Cedar Valley no doubt.

Love the all inclusive pricing for starters! Allison and her staff are always organized and communicate so well. Not to mention our little one loves being in class at the Denver Studio and is learning so much about dance and being a good person!

I’ve been attending ADC for 10 years! When I enrolled for the very first time I was very nervous as I was a very shy and quiet 7 year old, but I felt very welcomed and loved as soon as I walked in the door! The ADC staff are amazing and they have helped me grow from a shy little 7 year old to a much more confident teenager! I would never choose any other studio! ADC is more than a dance studio, it’s a family and anyone that walks in the door is treated equally and is apart of this amazing dance family! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I started at ADC when they first opened and have never left. There is always excellent communication about what is needed from parents and the all inclusive pricing makes it even easier. The staff is amazing and super helpful with any question you may have. This studio is about so much more than just your typical dance class and gives each student, whether they have been there for one season or ten seasons, a welcoming feeling and the feeling of family. Overall, I would 100% recommend Allisons Dance Center for dance classes in the Cedar Valley.

I would highly recommend Allisons Dance Center to anyone looking for a studio for their child! My daughters love attending and have learned so much from Ms. Allison and her incredible staff! Not only have they grown as dancers but have also grown as kind and caring teenagers. Ms. Allison and her staff show the importance of giving back to the community by having the students take part in a variety of different events throughout the year. It’s a fun and positive environment for your child!

We have been with ADC since it opened in 2009. No other activity any of my five kids participated in growing up was EVER as organized or as clear in its communication as ADC. I’ve noticed some of the reviews where people claim they weren’t told certain policies or’s not possible. ADC puts ALL policies in a handbook which everyone gets upon enrollment. They work hard to keep up with information through newsletters, emails, a Facebook page and even another packet of information received at recital time. The teachers are all experienced, there is almost NO teacher turnover, there are receptionists and waiting room attendants to help children, and ADC was the first of all the studios in the Cedar Valley to give her students a (nearly) on schedule recital with costumes and an audience after Covid 19 hit. I know if one studio that didn’t do recital at all. ADC would NEVER let that happen to their students. No other studio will go above and beyond to give your student a wonderful dance experience and keep you informed! Anyone from intro dancer to senior competition team member is treated as a valued member of the ADC dance family. There are other studios, it’s true. But ADC will never treat you like a number.

ADC does an amazing job - from awesome teachers that truly care for your children, to amazing communication and LOVE the straightforward pricing (costumes/music fees, etc all included in monthly pricing - so no surprises!).We’ve been going to ADC for several years now and I continue to be impressed.Especially in the current environment, I feel there’s no safer (nor more caring) place to take your child right now to learn the love of dance while also building great life skills.HIGHLY recommend!

My daughter loves ADC! She is in her 5th year of dancing at the studio and looks forward to every lesson. The staff creates a positive, learning-focused environment. Beyond dance basics and technique the instructors work to instill the values of teamwork and community. This is a great studio for those with a passion for dancing!

Review №9

I have been dealing with the studio for about 10 years or so! I worked at the front desk and my sisters both went there along with all of their friends! Allison makes sure her students are always her first priority! Communication and programs are always very clear and detailed! She has staff out front to help her dancers and parents, as well as student teaching assistants to help in the back with the dancers! I cannot wait till my daughter is able to start dance there! I know she will be in fantastic hands!

My Great Granddaughter has been a member of this dance studio for 6 yrs. She has learned sooooo much. The staff is very kid friendly. My great granddaughter loves all of her teachers. Would highly recommend this studio.

Review №11

We have been taking classes with Allisons Dance Center for 10 years now. My daughters enjoy their classes and have learned so much. The positive atmosphere between the staff and students is always great to see. As a parent I appreciate the excellent communication from the staff. I highly recommend Allisons Dance Center.

Review №12

We have always been happy with Allisons Dance center. My daughter has danced at Allisons since 2013 and she loves her teachers and dance team. The choice of music and dance moves are always appropriate. Ms. Allison and her staff are always uplifting, encouraging and kind. We have truly enjoyed being a part of this dance family.

Review №13

ADC has been our dance “family” for about 10 years. It takes a very dedicated person to run such a well organized, fun, caring, clean, and respected studio and Ms. Allison is that special person! She and her staff do everything they possibly can to make every dancer feel welcome - both inside and outside the studio. We are very grateful to have found ADC in Cedar Falls and know that her new, second location in Denver will be just as special!

Review №14

We absolutely love ADC! They treat you like family and especially with COVID and everything in the world right now. They keep my kids safe while getting to do what they love: DANCE!

Review №15

My 13 year old daughter has attended Allisons Dance Center since she was in preschool. We have had a great experience attending ADC. It is a professional, safe, friendly and positive studio!

Review №16

Allisons is such a great family centered studio! They have become a second family to us. They always have your childs best interest at heart! We are proud to say that our child dances for Allisons Dance Center!

Review №17

I am 100% satisfied with this Dance center. My daughter started dance 2 months after turning 2 and is entering her 7th season this year. They treat the dancers like family, all the staff is amazing and make you feel welcome. The communication doesn’t get any better, they have every thing planned out for the season to a T and rarely ever change anything (with the exception of Covid, but they handled that like rock stars and still found a way to do a recital). We truly look forward to the next 9 years with this studio (if not longer, she’s convinced she will be a dance teacher here some day ☺️) ❤️

Review №18

My daughter has been at ADC 7 of her 10 years (so far) in dance. She absolutely loves & looks up to the teachers! I appreciate that ADC doesnt have a lot of teacher turnover; it allows those relationships to grow each year. ADC is a positive and encouraging place. Allison cares deeply about instilling a love of dance in both rec and competition students.She does have TAs to assist the youngest kids. Theyre select older students who go through training for it. Its an awesome thing for them to gain valuable skills & build a resume. But they certainly dont take her place. Sit in the waiting room watching on the TV monitors and youll see that. Everything is transparent - what goes on in the studios as well as the rules/policies. Read & follow them and you shouldnt have any problems.I looked into the prices of 3 other studios in CF/Wloo and found ADC to be the best value. Her prices include costumes and fees. Plus she gives discounts when enrolled in two or more classes. Something really important to me when choosing a studio was modesty in costumes and choreography/music... ADC for the win!Both directors are current/former elementary teachers, who are professional and prepared. And after last years Covid shutdowns, they more than proved it. Allison didnt just close up shop; she & her teachers bent over backwards to provide safe online instruction for the remainder of the year! She also made a socially-distanced outdoor recital happen for these kids. This year, shes even offering in-person and/or online classes, allowing you to choose which to attend from week to week. (Plus parents can watch online while their dancer is in the studio.) That sort of flexibility & transparency right now is huge! They say hard times reveal a persons true character. Indeed! Allison went above & beyond. With as loyal and dedicated as she was to her students & parents during that chaotic time, I will forever be loyal to her/ADC.--Misty

Our daughter took classes here for 5 years starting at 2 years old and loved it! She also took every dance Camp that they offered every summer.Unfortunately, we had to switch studios due to a scheduling conflict with her group violin class.We were very surprised that they did not do more to work with us on scheduling. We had told them every year that violin schedules come out late and we may need to switch classes later.No problem, well work with you!, Alison said. Then when we needed to switch classes for the first time in 5 years they sent us packing! : (

This is my daughters first year at Allison’s and we LOVE IT! She is two so the first few times she was nervous to go back into the room. The staff was AMAZING with her. I love the cameras so you can watch what your dancer is doing. Love Allison’s Dance!

Review №21

We have danced with Allison for 7 years!! To say we love it is an understatement! It is beyond love! We are a family. I love seeing all the new members each season and the growth the studio has had in the past years! ADC is amazing and the teachers are well educated! Thank you ADC for all you have taught and continue to teach to our daughter! ❤️

Review №22

We’ve been with the studio for 4 years and cannot day enough about the instructors and classes! The invest in each student to teach as well as create a positive culture. My daughter has grown so much in the areas of confidence and her love for dance that we look forward to many more years with Ms. Allison!

Review №23

I am giving this 0 stars. They charged us $258 plus $30 registration, so $288 for my 4yr old to attend one 45min class. My daughter begged to dance, I enrolled her to Allisons and my kiddo did not like it - she was just not ready to be in that environment. I called to tell them we would not be continuing b/c my kiddo just was not ready (too young), so they sent me a bill for $258 after I already paid a $30 registration fee. When my kiddo is ready to dance, we will NOT be returning to this center.

Review №24

We love ADC and the family atmosphere. The instructors are outstanding. Our girls learn so much more than dance at the studio. Thank you ADC!

Review №25

We love ADC, teachers and staff. My girls have learned more than dance at ADC. My kids have made life long friends, developed generous hearts giving back to the community, and had an opportunity to learn as well as teach. I am proud to be part of the ADC family.

Review №26

My daughter started at ADC when she was just 2 years old and has loved it since. A very clean and friendly environment. The classes are very educational.

Review №27

We have been a part of the Allison’s Dance Center Family for 3 years. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to start our journey in dance. We truly have been blessed to be a part of this dance family with wonderful support and teaching of much more than just dancing.
