"Dance taught me discipline. It taught me how to set goals, how to achieve them, how to accomplish them. It also taught me how to take constructive criticism and turn it into something positive."

Michelle Davis

Ardell Stone School of Dancing was my home away from home for 15 years! I could not have asked for a better place to help me become who I am while helping me grow in what I love to do...dancing!! The instructors are so kind, loving and helpful. I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to dance at such an incredible studio!"

Taylor Walton

"It was one of the fondest parts of my childhood, it made me a proper lady. I think about dance and there is a special place in my heart from those times."

Dr. Molly Rutherford
