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.
