"I want to simply thank you for the overwhelming positive impact you and your staff has on all our children. It truly is a privilege for them to be at your studio, and the more I understand the foundation on which it is built, the more I am thankful that this is where my children dance. As you explained at the recital, Mary Alice's Dance Studio is like a family. I imagine a lot of places can say that but I want you to know that we feel it. You, AJ, and the rest of the faculty and all of the helpers have been incredibly sweet and professional and we're so grateful. We will definitely be returning in the Fall. My girls are invested in this and we couldn't be happier." ~ MADS Mom

"Mary Alice's has been a part of my family's life for over 18 years and it has been one of the most incredible and unforgettable experiences! The faculty is fantastic and so incredibly talented! The friendships my children and I have made will last a lifetime! The laughter and tears (sometimes happy, sometimes sad) are something we will remember forever! The life lessons they have learned about being a part of a team, hard work, humility and sympathy will stay with them long after they have graduated and moved on. I know each and every experience has made and will made and will make them a better person. Thank you so very much!" ~ MADS Mom

"I am so proud to be a part of your dance family and look forward to a long relationship to watch my daughter grow in her journey of dance! " ~ Mini Mom


Dear Mary Alice

"I wanted to take this opportunity to express my thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful experience over the past year.As a family, new to dance, it was a pleasure to be able to have both of my children become involved in their first lessons. I especially want to express my appreciation to Jennifer and AJ for their work with my son and daughter, as they both went out of their way to make sure my children felt comfortable and welcome. Special thanks to Susan for her work and giving me the opportunity to be in the Daddy-Daughter dance! The recital was wonderful, and it was clear from watching all the numbers that you have some very talented and special faculty.As a parent there is no better joy then being able to watch my children blossom on stage, and this would  not have been possible without the dedication of you and your staff" ~ MADS DAD

Dear Miss AJ

"Thank you so very much for the wonderful, fun-filled year that my grandaughter experienced in your dance class. She learned so much and looked forward to dance class each week. You did a great job with those little dancers. It was a joy to watch them each week. The recital was super nice. It couldn't have been any better. 13 family members and friends came to it to see my grandaughter and thoroughly enjoyed watching her dance and all the dance numbers. I wish I could have seen you after the show to tell you personally what a positive impact you and MADS have on those young dancers. It is great to see!" ~ MADS Grandma


Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the recital this past weekend. You have assembled an amazing group of truly talented teachers. It is so nice to see choreographic diversity that is only made possible when talented and creative minds are allowed to flourish. I was overwhelmed at seeing the love the children have for each of their teachers, as well as the love and respect the teachers show for each other. It really is a family atmosphere! What is particularly telling is seeing the number of MADS alumni that returned for each of the shows. These girls not only loved to dance but they loved to dance at MADS.

Just wanted to let you know that "Landslide" was so very beautiful! I am always moved by it but tonight there was something in the air that spoke a little more with the dance than usual! I feel so grateful that my daughter could be a part of something so special. Thank you so much for a perfect memory! ~ 2019 NYCDA Nationals
