Impact Dance Studio is the best place around to send your child for dance lessons. They are friendly, well organized, very professional, and most important – my daughters have a ton of fun!  – Karen O.

We tried dance lessons at a park district and another dance studio before finally finding Impact. What a huge difference! Impact instructors are off the charts talented and by far teach kids better than anyone else. The instructors are also kind and patient. The recital is truly top notch – you won’t be disappointed. – Brian D.

I have had 2 daughters dance at Impact since 2001! They were 4 and 6 years when they started and are now both in high school and still loving dance! I believe the teachers and classes have helped them build self-confidence and self-esteem. The atmosphere has always been positive. – Donna M.

I have two daughters who love to dance and have been attending classes at Impact for 5 years now. We love the instructors and the owner Diane is fantastic. If you are looking for a dance studio for your children to grow with, this is the one! – Stacey C.

My daughter has been dancing at Impact since she was about 3 years old. She is now 7 and is a member of the Impact Dance Studio Performance Company. She has made new friends and has gained so much confidence over the past years. This is truly a great program not only for those looking to perfect the art of dance but also those who need to build social confidence. – Heather B.

My daughters ages 8, 7, and 3 all dance at Impact. They all started dancing at age 2 and became hooked. The instructors make learning dance using proper technique so much fun! They instill values of hard work, goal setting, and confidence in all of their dancers. All dancers have the opportunity to perform in a year end recital–very professional and amazing to watch! – Michele W.

By the time by my daughter turned two I knew she had to dance. I was told by a relative that Impact Dance Studio had recreational classes for her age. Although it is not close to where we live, I knew that this was the place for her. I have been increasingly impressed with the entire Impact Dance Studio organization. The teachers and staff are amazing, the instruction is fantastic, and the end of the year recitals and company showcase are outstanding. From the recital theme, to the music, dances, and costumes, they put on a great show! I could not ask for anything better! I will continue to recommend Impact Dance Studio to my family and friends. – Marisa M.

I have three girls ages 6, 4, and 2. All three of my girls started Impact at the age of 2 and love to dance. Impact has taught them how much fun dancing can be and proper techniques. I am so glad we found Impact Dance Studio when we moved here. – Angela C.

My daughter has been dancing at Impact Dance Studio since she was 4 years old. She is now 9, and has been a part of Impact Dance Studio Performance Company for the past 3 years. Dance has now become her passion. Impact has instilled her with valuable qualities- teamwork, responsibility and hard work. The teachers have encouraged her to learn and grow as a CONFIDENT dancer. BEST DANCE STUDIO!!!!! – Antonia R.

My daughter is 5 and she has been dancing with Impact for the last 3 years. She LOVE, LOVE, LOVES this group of instructors. They have inspired her to become the best that she can be and allow her to have fun while doing it! There are a few local and maybe more convenient dance companies in the area, but IMPACT is by far the most professional as well as friendly group of people! I highly recommend Impact to anyone who is looking to have fun and learn all forms of dance! – Jill L.

Impact Dance Studio is the Best! Very polished, professional dance instruction especially with their company, The Impact Dance Studio Performance Company!

I have three dancers involved with Impact Dance and my youngest is 5 and following all the others! Best Dance Company around! – Stacy K.
