how are we doing

"As a parent of a 9yr old who lives and breathe the arts - TTA is the place to be. This school offers everything and with lots of love! The passion to pull out the talent of these boys and girls is one I've never encountered."-

marilyn butlerparent

"I am a proud parent of a 4 year old bubbly girl name Katelyn . She is so excited to be apart of an excellent dance school, True Talents of the Arts. TTA has allowed Katelyn to come out of her shy shell and exhibit a plethora of confidence in her dancing as well in her social skills. I thank TTA for giving my daughter the opportunity to shine through all she has learned."-

mia norwoodparent

"TTA is a great place to take dance lessons. My daughter is so lucky to have such a talented dancer/teacher in Ms. Amber. TTA has brought the best out in my daughter; always telling her she can do anything and pushing her to the next level all while making her believe in herself. I love that every child is treated the same and everyone is like one happy family. The love that Ms. Amber and the other teachers have for the children really shows."-

lisa davisparent

My daughter has been dancing with Amber and TTA for about 3 years now. She started out with ballet and grew to include jazz, tap, and Hip hop. Kayla has blossomed as a dancer. She has gained confidence, focus and valuable time-management skills, balancing dance, home, and school. Amber and the other instructors work patiently and diligently as they instruct the students. And their love for the kids and teaching dance is quite evident. Kayla loves and respects Ms. Amber, as the kids affectionately call her, and so do I!

kristie muldrow-gillparent

True Talents of the Arts (TTA) has been a great asset in my son’s life. The dancing and acting coaching he receives has benefitted him both artistically and academically. Artistically, he’s developing his natural gifts for both dancing and acting. His ability to realize this potential gives him more confidence to embrace his uniqueness in the world. Also, his academics have begun to soar. He’s maturing emotionally, physically, cognitively, and socially. He’s much more physically active in school, is more open to communicating in social groups, and much more coordinated cognitively regarding his ability to think more critically. Who knew that signing him up for a dance and acting class would yield so much of a return on my investment. Thanks TTA.
