I only wish we had found Maia and Rhonda a long time ago. This is our new home and we couldn’t be happier about it. I have wanted to find true role models and mentors for my daughter and have found that with both Rhonda and Maia. They have put together an incredible program and the studio is absolutely beautiful. If you are looking for an artistic approach to dance with age appropriate choreography, strong training, and a warm and loving environment, you will find that at IDA.
Rhonda Notary began her training as a dancer at the early age of 4. Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, she credits her career as a professional to Jeri Pinnell and Barb Coman. By the time she was 16, she was studying in New York at Broadway Dance Center under Frank Hatchett and Sheila Barker. As a standout amongst her peers, she was awarded a scholarship to attend Tremaine Dance Center and The Edge Performing Arts Center where she studied under Joe Tremaine, Doug Caldwell and Jackie Sleight.
