She tells me it is fun and challenging and she could not see herself dancing at any other studio. She joined the competition dance team 3yrs ago. The teachers are wonderful and know how to bring the best out in her. Very happy for our family to be part of AOD."

It's about learning to become successful in all endeavors!"

"I was able to get an amazing scholarship to college, and it's thanks to the Academy! I've danced here ever since I was a little girl, and the Haas family has been amazing! They have taught me to work hard for my dreams, and now they are coming true. If I didn't dance here I wouldn't be the same person I am today. 
The staff are amazing too, they love their job. It always makes the difference when a teacher loves to teach. And hopefully one day, I'll be just as an amazing dance teacher as they are now. LOVE YOU AOD!!!."
