Don't Take Our Word For It!

Listen to what some of the parents and students of CKC had to say...

Jessica B. ~ parent
My daughters are coming up on their third year dancing at CKC and absolutely love it! They have all grown so much in their dancing abilities, confidence and have learned that hard work and dedication pay off. Crystal is a true blessing to have as not only a director but their teacher as well. The encouragement, knowledge, and passion she shows them to succeed in their dancing is truly amazing! My family looks forward to many more years dancing at CKC, and continuing great friendships we've made there along the way and still to come.

My daughter will be starting her third year of dance at CKC this fall. We originally came to CKC based on personal recommendations and are so glad we did. My 9 year old loves the studio, the classes, and most importantly the friendships she has made. I love watching her self confidence grow in the supportive and encouraging environment that is CKC. It is fabulous when you watch a performance and see pride on the teacher's faces for a job well done. Whether or not she continues to dance for another year or another ten years, she is learning important self and life lessons that will shape the woman she will someday be. Thank you for nurturing her love of dance and being such positive role models.

Thank you for everything you do for these girls. You are a true inspiration to them in more ways than one! Thank you for keeping dance a part of our lives!

Rare is the word that describes something so unique and different that there is no other thing to do except hope and wish to be a part of something like it. But every once in a while you become part of that something that makes you wonder how it could be possible. There is a group of girls and a place with whom I share a special and unique bond with that no one or thing could break. CKC has built this rarity to come alive. Crystal and Kristy and Colette built the studio on another rare unique bond, each other an,d took the chance to see what it would become and I can truly say that it is a place that makes rare things form, sisterhoods that cannot be broken and a love and passion for dance to thrive. Each dancer at CKC and especially Crystal and Kristy have provided me with a place that cannot compete with any other studio. It will forever be my home, my escape and the place that is rare and once in a lifetime to come across. It's crazy to think 14 years in one single place could provided enough love to last a lifetime, laughter to the end of the universe and a family I never knew I was missing. I thank each and everyone of my dancers and my sisters I have made and all the thanks in the world to the teachers who practically raised me,You are truly an inspiration for each and every dancer, and especially for me. You all will never know how much you mean to me, but I hope this heads some light to the rarities in life and a strive for everyone who reads this to find that rarity and never let it go.

I've been going to this studio for over 10 years and it has made such an impact on my life. All of my teachers are an inspiration and great role models for every student, from the little girls in creative movement to the senior team. I've never taken a class that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. Anyone looking to enroll their kids in dance should highly consider CKC!
 
Kylee S. ~ dancer
Since the age of 3, dance has been my passion. I wasn't the most outgoing person, but dancing became my way of expressing myself. CKC Dance Academy has been my home for 13 years now and I wouldn't want it any other way. The studio is my escape and a safe home where I can always laugh and enjoy the love of dance. The people I dance with have become my family and the teachers that have worked hard to teach me have become mother figures to me. At one point, I felt like quitting and my teachers had the influence and power to keep me doing what I love. Their hard work and dedication to the studio has kept me wanting to change lives like they have changed mine. There aren't enough words to explain or thank Crystal , Kristy, and Colette for all the incredible things they have done for their dancers and for me all the years I have spent in the studio. Even for my teammates that have become my sisters and have always been by my side. Our bond is inseparable, and the studio will always be my home. Everyone deserves to experience this amount of love and laughter in one place. Knowing that this is my last year, I will always consider CKC my second home and will cherish all the memories that we all have created. There's no better place to start, but here.

CKC dance academy is my second home. I have loved to go to the studio on a weekly basis ever since I started dancing. CKC has taught me so many things beyond dance and I am very grateful for the hard working staff. I have never had a dull moment in any of my dance classes, my wonderful friends and teachers have shown me how to love and laugh more than ever. Also I have never met a more supportive and loving group of people. I have no clue what I would do without my teachers and friends, well actually they are my family. CKC is my family, my get away place and my place of confidence. I just want to say that I love each and every one of my dance team members and crystal & that I am so thankful for everything that you have done for me. I wish that all of you parents chose to come and support CKC dance academy because here dancing isn't just a competition it is a love and passion for all of the dancers.

CKC Dance Academy has been a huge part of my life since I was 7. I remember when I was just starting classes, I was so nervous because I didn't know anyone in my class, but when I walked into class I made friends in a heartbeat. I went to class week after week, and year after year I kept adding on a class. In 2010, I was asked to join the Junior Team. All I could think was, "Oh great, MORE people I don't know." I also knew I'd be held to higher standards..., which would be a challenge. The teachers at CKC are THE BEST teachers in the world! They're funny, they joke around, but they also know when it's time to get down to business. I mean come on, how many dancers can say their ballet teacher went out and got the whole team McFlurrys? But besides that, growing up with such an awesome dance team, has helped me grow. Cheering each other on at competitions, critiquing each other only to make us better, and being supportive of our dancing has taught me a lot about caring. Some people might see us as "just a team", but we're more than that - we're a family. And now, 8 years later, I'm still with the same amazing studio and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I love my team and my studio, and I am happy to be representing CKC as a dancer who has grown with the help of my CKC family.

CKC Dance Academy is where my love for dance began. Since I started dancing at CKC as a little girl, I've made so many great friends and memories at the studio. CKC is my home and I can't imagine dancing anywhere else. Crystal is the most inspiring person I have ever met, and I am so lucky to have her as my dance teacher. This year, I had the privilege to assist a class at CKC and while doing this I realized how much love and passion Crystal has for dance and for all of her students. She would do anything for her dancers. Crystal, thank you so much for everything you do for CKC on a daily basis
