"Classic Image Dance (CID) has been an excellent studio for our kids for the last 4 years. Even though there are many other dance studios nearby, we drive all the way from Scottsdale to Chandler (30 – 40 min drive) to be at CID. Having a strong, no-nonsense Director and great teachers has been very important to us and we have all that at CID. Our kids love going to dance at CID and we consider this our second home. We highly recommend Classic Image Dance to anyone who is interested in dance."

—Roshani De Soysa

"In addition to my daughter receiving excellent dance instruction at CID, herself-confidencee has improved and she has made lifelong friends."

—Liz M.

"When joining Classic Image Dance, we not only found a studio with excellent instructors and choreographers, who were perfectly matched to teach and grow performers at their age and experience level, but also aclose-knitt family group. They are supportive of each other and inspirational. We have built a friendship that will last a lifetime, and through those friendships have become more involved in dance than we ever thought we could."

—The Hightower Family

"We have been very satisfied and extremely happy joining CID and walked into a true blessed dance family with talented children. We feel in the short time we have been there that you have made us feel so welcomed by you and your entire staff."


"CID became our dance home over 5 years ago. We came to them from a large studio where we just were not happy. We have had good, family times with this company and have enjoyed it so much we cannot imagine dancing anywhere else!! Always, we feel that the instruction is top notch and yet constantly improving…..and always without sacrificing the personal touch that makes it feel like you are dropping your daughter off at her second home. The staff and the families involved are fun, supportive and promote such a lovely, refreshing drama-free environment. I would recommend CID to anyone that asked!"

—Monica M.
