Rating: 5 stars  

This dance company is a great service to the community, both in teaching the arts and being faithful witnesses to Christ. Their programs are not only professional, but very entertaining and Christian-oriented. They work very hard to ensure quality of everything they teach and in all of their performances. I also understand they have outreach and volunteer at various churches and nursing homes throughout the area.

I have been a spectator at King David worship concerts for many years, and they are always excellent, a source of inspiration and joy.
This company is highly skilled, polished, and professional, and I am always happy after leaving a concert.

I attended King David for 5 years until i left for college and can say that their ministry deeply impacted my life. It meant so much to have excellent training in such a loving, family atmosphere. I experienced a lot of abuse as a child and without this company i don't know how i would have healed or coped as a teenager. They showed me how to use dance as so much more than movement. It is a way to let go of pain and daily struggles, a way to grow closer to the Lord, a way to reach the hurting and that is something i won't ever forget. Their encouragement is one of the reasons that i am involved in student ministry today so that i can try and bless others as they have blessed my life.

I've seen performances and heard many wonderful stories of lives that have positively changed through the outreach of King David Dance. The performances are family oriented and beautiful presentations.

One colleague of mine that worked in the same hospital shared with me her personal story of how the staff and team and their support.

There are many community outreaches but this is truly one that touches lives of all ages.

My daughter attends King David, and I am constantly impressed with this wonderful studio! It is very hard to find a place that teaches sound technical training along with Christian values and focus as well! Madison loves her class! She is not only growing technically, but her love for dance is growing as well! I'm excited to see her continued growth here!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my daughter grow technically and in her joy for dance.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing! :)

I have attended several of the Worship Concert. King David Dance Company performances are outstanding. The message through dance is provocative. It encourages young people to become a part of the ministry. And certainly it encourages all to live a better life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attended the Worship Concert several years.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

King David Dance Company is very solid in their routine.

King David Dance Company has been such a blessing to me! I danced with them for three years, while I was in highschool, and remain to stay in touch. The Directors and staff, as well as the other clients have meant so much to me. One instance in particular in which they went above and beyond was when my parents announced their separation and divorce. I was crushed. I went to dance that same afternoon and simply broke down in tears, heart torn. My classmates and teachers gathered round me with comfort and prayers. They played a key role in helping me overcome my personal struggles through their support and through dance. Dance has been a part of my life for almost as long as I remember and has been an outlet for me to relieve stress, express myself, and give praise to God. This company has been invaluable to me, and I still return to experience the worship concerts that are performed annually because they are so powerful.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the ministry opportunities I have participated in with them, such as trips for outreach to inner city Philadelphia, personal struggles that they have helped me through, and their genuine concern and commitment to interest in me and my well being even after I left for college.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

simply ask others to give more so the organization could fulfill everything they dream to. Their hearts are so large but everything has a monetary cost.

Dancing at King David has been such a blessing to my life. Not only have I grown as a dancer from the phenomenal dance training, but I have grown spiritually as well. I have been dancing at the studio since it opened, and I can't imagine training in dance anywhere else. Every single staff member is loving and genuinely cares about each individuals life. It is so nice to be able to dance in an environment where Christians can praise God together.

I've Grown spiritually and in my dance technique. I have made so many great friends while being here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't make any changes.

We have extended family that have been involved with the King David Dance Company for several years. Their daugther has grown in grace and gracefulness through the program. It is refreshing to know that this dance company values biblical character qualities as well as professionalism; they invest in the people they teach.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

observing the positive influence it has had on the daughter who attends and on the family as a whole.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make their program better known to the community. It is encouraging to know there are still places that emphasize wholesome strength and beauty, and help people build character and confidence while enjoying the study of dance.

My daughter has danced at KDCC for 6 years. Barb and Sal are amazing people of Christ. They implement the values of the Bible in every class and pray with the children. The children that dance there not only learn technical dancing but it nourishes their Christian Spirit. I love what my daughter has taken away each time she leaves the facility not only dance wise but spiritually.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my family's life.

I would change nothing about this organization it is wonderful!!

My daughter, Alex, has been developing her dance skills under the tutelage of Sal and Barbara Messina for eight years at the King David Dance Company. I have been absolutely delighted with the technical proficiency of the instructors and the emphasis on development of the whole person (body, soul and spirit). I would most assuredly recommend the King David Dance Company to anyone requiring excellence as a way of life!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally seen the results of Sal and Barbara's instruction at the yearly dance recitals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I recommend no changes to the present program.
