|Directions to the Studio
|"I love that our instructor (Miss Sarah) is so patient and so creative with the youngest girls... it is a
difficult age, and she manages them so well. I enjoy seeing the best of my daughter brought out in her
love of dance."
--Catherine Schobert, mom of Claire, age 5
"Call after call [to other studios] led to frustration when the local studios closer to home would refer to
'the girls' even after being told we were looking for a studio for our son. After hearing an ad on The
River for FFDC, Owen looked at me expectantly and asked me if this could be the place that God was
leading us. Oh, from the mouth of babes. So, while he was in preschool, I called and spoke with Miss
Sharon who spoke fondly of the children and families and spoke of modesty and a God-centered studio.
After our first visit, we knew God called us to come to FFDC and have not regretted the decision. We
love that our son is a dancer and that he is treated with as much respect at the girls in the class. We
love that he is not going to be exposed to inappropriate lyrics, dance moves or body parts as he would
be in some of the secular studios. FFDC has been a great fit for our dancer!!"
--Kim Lunsford, mom of Owen, age 7
"When Addie was old enough to consider dance class, I began asking other mothers for their opinions
of the local dance studios. Footsteps received the most glowing reviews! The modest costumes, the
family atmosphere, and even the Father Daughter Dude Dance were all mentioned again and again, and
that pretty much sold us. I attended the Open House and was even more impressed by what I saw and
heard from the staff...and I enrolled Addie on the spot! We've been very happy with our decision. Addie
truly loves her dance class, and we're proud to be part of the FFDC family!"
--Jennifer Kearns, mom of Addie, age 5
"I checked out several studios near our home, but none of them had the commitment to modesty and
age appropriate costumes that we felt were necessary. We finally found Footsteps and gave it a try. We
felt right at home, right away. Chloe has now started her fifth year in dance and we couldn't be more
pleased with our choice of studio. There is a family attitude and a dedication to pleasing the Lord that I
don't think we could find anywhere else."
--Jamie Cribbs, mom of Chloe, age 8
"I just wanted to personally thank you for a great year. Mackenzie learned not only some great dance
moves, but more importantly some great life lessons. I have had folks tell me that they see a change in
her confidence just from dancing. You ladies do such a nice job of keeping it all in perspective and
that is platinum in my book."
--Robyn Beal, mom of Mackenzie, age 10
"This is just a note to say 'Thank you' and 'Bravo' for last night's recital. I thoroughly enjoyed the
production. The music was awesome. The costuming--lovely as usual. I also like that you try to choose
costumes that are beautiful and appropriate to each routine, but that the outfits are modest. God is
blessing you, & through you, He's blessing many."
--Lynn Schultz, grandma of Cassidy, age 8
"I can't thank you enough for your hard work & dedication to running a top-notch studio. You are
appreciated. Thanks for loving my girl!"
--Alisha Sheely, mom of Brooke, age 9
