Here is what Parents have to say about ADA!

Brandi, Parent – 14 years

"My daughter will be going into her 14th season at The Alberta Dance Academy… She has grown more confident each passing year and the discipline that is instilled at a very young age has carried her through many difficult decisions…It says a lot when your child is counting the days until the new season begin….You will never regret your decision [to register your dancer at ADA]."

Lara, Parent – 5 years

“Excellent teachers who inspire and motivate dancers of all ages and ability to be the best little dancers they can be! We've experienced 5 wonderful years with ADA (from preschool programs to competitive programs) and look forward to many more!”

Crystal, Parent – 3 years

Angela, Parent – 4 years

“My 9 year-old daughter has attended ADA …and our experience has been terrific!  She enjoys it more and more every year!   Great people and lots of options for everyone!”

Seven: Death of You Choreographer : Quincy Pipella Dancers: Maria Ghanem, Georgia Quinlan, Hannah Kohlman, Daniella Marotta, Leyla Yasa, Farah Merhi, Isabela Gutierrez, Sarah Brown Which road do you choose? Do you try to deny, escape or stray away from your shattered, deplorable reality? Or do you let yourself be consumed by what could be the death of you… Sringara Lahari Choreographer: Jai Govinda Dancer: Kiruthika Rathanaswami “Oh wave of beauty and love, you give boons to those who take refuge in you. You have beautiful delicate limbs that captivates the heart of Shiva, the destroyer of cupid. Please protect me. The mark of the red tilaka on your forehead is like the blemish on the bright moon. You tremble under the kiss of Shiva. Oh merciful one, you bloom like a flower in my heart.” – Lingaraja Choreographer and Performer: Kara Nolte Intimacy, connection and bringing people closer together. Universal lamentation for the loss of person to person connection. Sensual consolation to revive vulnerability.
