“Passionate, encouraging, focused, and hard-working are only a few of the words I would use to describe my daughters experience at Kelowna Dance & Performing Arts.  She started her journey at KDPA two years ago and she hasn’t looked back.  As a parent I love being a part of a group of dancers and teachers that support and inspire one another in every aspect of their lives. Miss Melodie is the driving force behind such a talented group of teachers who work collaboratively towards one common goal – believing in each individual student. She has not only taught my daughter the skills she needs to succeed as a dancer, but also life-long skills including team work, adaptability, and accountability. The teachers are creative, of high caliber, and strive to push the students to become the best they can be. They see and bring out the value of each person, in order to work as a unified group, celebrating differences, and encouraging uniqueness.”


“At KDPA, we were so happy to find a place which fosters and promotes a strong work-ethic, which is not only necessary for the art of dance, but such a life skill. This helped my daughter thrive, and push for her goals. Each student and family is treated with the utmost respect in a professional, yet fun atmosphere.”


“My daughter has been with KDPA since September 2010 and she has loved every minute. It has been a joy to watch her form friendships, gain strengths and to see her confidence grow. This is all due to the genuine passion, dedication and love for teaching that the Faculty offers.”


“I love dancing at KDPA. The teachers have guided me to a level of skill and technique that I’ve never reached before, and I have also gained a second family, all of whom are just as passionate about dance as I am.”


“KDPA provides the opportunities to feed any passion for dance. Teachers help their students grow as dancers by giving the tools to go far in the dance world. But what I love the most is that KDPA feels like a family. We dance and laugh, but we also share our dance accomplishments and create memories that we can keep forever. I would never choose to dance anywhere else. The teachers are fantastic as well. I wouldn’t have come as far in my dancing without them.”


“Dancing at KDPA is definitely hard work, but it’s all worth it. At KDPA there is always something to smile about.”


“Kelowna Dance & Performing Arts provides the opportunity for kids of all ages to engage in a variety of dance forms at all different levels. I am excited to be a part of a studio that provides this wide spectrum of opportunities. The atmosphere, coupled with an amazing set of staff, and of course the amazing students, all collaborate to make KDPA a place I am truly proud to work at, teach at, and be a part of.”
