ADAM & LISA

*****

As a professional performer working in NYC, I can without a doubt say the training I received from Adam and Lisa Clark has been incomparable. When I first came to them I had a limited working knowledge of dance, despite many years of classes as a child. The Clarks immediately began to train me to the best of my abilities. I went from not being able to do one single turn to taking classes from top choreographers across the country and competing in the Top 10 for the chance to represent Michigan at Miss America. Now, I can walk into a class in NYC and know that I have the ability to tackle a variety of styles and levels. But more important than learning a new step or two (or 10) has been that my self-confidence as a person has grown with every step Iíve mastered. The performance world is tough, but the discipline and hard work that is put into the training at Dance Alliance has translated far beyond the studio walls. They say you never know what you can do until you try. That is exactly what their curriculum asks; that you try and work just a little bit harder with every class; the outcome is amazing! I walk into auditions, onto TV sets and stages in New York and know that I can perform as an actor because my body and mind have been trained to look at material as a chance to explore and push my abilities and talent. I can not begin to thank Adam and Lisa enough for providing me with a challenging and nurturing environment where I could learn more than I ever dreamed possible! Living in a big city is fantastic, but Dance Alliance is a gem to be treasured!

Fondly,

Halima Henderson
