Maple Academy of Dance is competitive and disciplined.  But what makes this school unique are the lessons learned outside of the studio. At MAD, dancers support, encourage and respect each other.  Lessons for life! Good times and great memories!

I have been a client of Maple Academy of Dance for over 15 years and I have nothing but great memories and am so glad I chose Maple Academy of Dance for my daughter’s dance education.  Their professionalism and teaching techniques have proven to benefit my daughter tremendously as she has excelled  in dance and has chosen to continue to dance at a post secondary level.

I would strongly recommend Maple Academy of Dance for your child’s recreational or competitive  dance education.

Our daughter has been dancing with the Maple Academy of Dance for 16 years.  She has danced competitively for 12 years.  It is rare to find a dance school that can offer not only superior technical training, but also a positive and welcoming learning space for its students.  And MAD does just that! While students are offered the opportunity to train competitively or recreationally with the school's knowledgeable trained staff, they are all made to feel part of the team - a part of the family. From day one MAD has provided our very shy daughter with encouragement and support and an unwavering committment to her success. Because of the warm and inclusive environment, she broke out of her shell.  She has become a successful competitive dancer over the years.  However, we did not realize how much more she would gain from dancing at the Maple Academy of Dance. Her experiences on and off the stage have taught her many things about herself and life in general. All the teachers have become an integral factor or the person she is today.  She looks up to the teachers at MAD and they have become the most influential role models in her life.  They instilled values of hard work and dedication.  They encouraged her and pushed her beyond her limits because they believed in her potential.  She  learned about never quitting, perseverance and discipline, teamwork and humility.  She learned about time management and found a balance between dance and excelling academically.  She was not only trained as a dancer, but as a person with traits to be successful in anything she does in life.  We are forever grateful to all the teachers for the incredible dancer and person she has become. 
 
We highly recommend Maple Academy of Dance for your child's dance education.

Dear teachers of MAD,

When I look back on my very first year of dance I look back at the person I may have become if I wasn’t a dancer at MAD. Dancing and having support from my comp team and all of my teachers has given me the confidence that I never would have found. Not only that but each of you have given me many amazing memories that I would not trade for anything.

I am lucky I had Miss Ginette to teach me the meaning of hard work and determination.

I am lucky to have danced the first of many beautiful dances created by Miss Rosemarie.

I am lucky to have had Miss Diana who always put a smile on my face.

I am lucky to have received many of Miss Gay’s big hugs and heart-warming talks and lucky to have had Ms Lynn always looking after me and my injuries.

Miss Teresa and Miss Antonietta thank you for being there during many of my early years of dance and helping me find my love for dance at such a young age.

I am very fortunate to have met and to have learned from all of you. Thank you for all that you have done and all that you give to make the studio the wonderful place it is. Thank you for helping me realize how much dance means to me. I will miss you all and the studio, but I hope you all know that MAD will always be like a second family to me.

Lots of love and best wishes, Sara. 


 
The teachers and staff of M.A.D. are inspiring, hardworking and caring. The studio is like our second home and we've become a family! It's a joy to dance here and learn something new everyday!

Thirteen years ago I stepped into the studio without a clue that I would be where I am today. You all have been by my side as you have watched me grow. With your help you have made me a better dancer and have taught me that anything is possible. I couldn't be more grateful to have been at such a great studio with people that I can call my family.

Lots of love, JM


 

I would like to say a huge thank you. Not only have you taught me how to dance, but you made my love for it grow more and more.  Throughout all these years I have experienced so many great things that I will never forget. Thanks for helping me to come out of my shell and become the person I am today.  

Love SDG


 

Thank you Ginette, Lynn, Gay, Diana, Rosemarie, Teresa, Antonietta, Vanessa, Stephanie, Shannon, Anna and Cory! Thank you for being an important part of our family.

Dear Ms. Ginette, you are such an incredible dancer, amazing teacher, hardworking and dedicated person. I always look up to you and I am inspired by you to dance.  Over the years I have grown as a dancer and as a person and you have always been there guiding me in my dancing and in life lessons. I just want to thank you so much for all that you have done for me over the years, teaching me and pushing me to do better always!

Thank you so much for welcoming me into the MAD family so many years ago. The experiences I have had and the memories I have made have helped me become the dancer and person I am today. I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity to dance, perform and pursue my passion. You have taught me so much and you continue to inspire me to work to my full potential in everything I do. Dancing at MAD has allowed me to have so many experiences and opportunities and I have you to thank for that. Being part of the MAD family has been such a blessing. I will carry the lessons I've learned and the memories I've made with me always. Thank you!

Love always AC


 

I still remember coming to the studio for the first time and auditioning for you.  I was so excited to be a part of the MAD family and it seems like yesterday was my first class. Even now after not dancing for many years, the studio still feels like a second home. Thank you for the opportunity to have such an amazing dance education. Being part of the dance family has been such an incredible blessing. Your teaching and lessons went beyond just dance and I carry all that you taught me in my mind always. Thank you for allowing me to continue to be a part of the MAD family and for the chance to be a part of the amazing studio you've built. Thank you for so many years of dance and unforgettable memories.

Love always SC
