Review from Guidestar
February 17, 2011

I've never had the opportunity to dance at "King David's Dance Company" because I've been too busy running my own dance studio. However, I know several girls who have danced with Sal and Barb. I've only heard excellent things and have wanted to participate in their ministry. Sal has been very gracious to help me over the past several years with my own dance studio. He did some music recording for me for my recital's and rented out his very own marley dance floor when I was in a pinch. He is excellent at cutting music and he is a very gracious man. I've only meet Barb outside the front door of their home but she has always been very kind. Both Barb and Sal are great godly people. I'm glad I've had the opportunity to meet them both.

The Great!

Value is a word I would use to describe Sal and Barbara Messina. With them, you absolutely get the best. They came into our lives as dance instructors to our daughter, Jennifer, when she was in elementary school. They helped develop her as a dancer, a performer, and more importantly, as a young christian woman. In their classroom, Jennifer was not only taught the basics of dance, she was taught to use those creative steps to love and worship the Lord. Jennifer performed with the King David Dance Company all through her high school years. There are not enough words to tell you what a difference this ministry and dance company made in her life. Again, I would just have to use the word value. With the King David Dance Company, you get God's best.
Under Sal & Barbara's christian guidance, Jennifer developed her own self-confidence. Their relationship has always been based on honesty, trust, love and a sincere desire to use the talents the Lord has given them. Jennifer is now a young married woman and lives in Los Angeles, California. They continue their mentoring relationship through e-mails, phone calls, and home visits. It is hard to believe that they have been in our lives for almost twenty-five years. Wow!
Thank you, Lord, for Sal and Barbara Messina and King David Dance Company. Thank you for always sending us your best.

I have personally been encouraged and uplifted with each performance of the King David Dance Company. Every performance is truly a worship concert. Even though our daughter is married and no longer performing with them, I sill attend the end of the year worship concert of King David Dance Company. Sal and Barbara are continuing to nurture and change the lives of young dancers. Judy Plummer - Charlotte, North Carolina

I leave it to Sal and Barbara Messina and their relationship with God to continue this ministry in the way He desires. The only change I would ask is that they have a larger number of dancers and each dance room filled to the max. Judy Plummer - Charlotte, North Carolina

I've have known the founders and instructors (Barb and Sal) of King David Dance Company for nearly 15 yrs. As a dancer and entrepreneur in a similar field and as a client served (my daughter took classes for 5 years), I can say, hands down, this is a top-notch organization. In addition to promoting the uncompromised Gospel of Christ, they are among the highest skilled dance professionals in the Charlotte region. They offer quality training and instruction in an amazing state-of- the art studio/facility and their passion, their integrity as well as their love for their students far exceed anything I've ever experienced. I am so blessed to know Barb and Sal and to have been a part of KDCC.

King David Dance Company has been part of our family for 4 years and has been just the kind of dance company I want for my teen-daughters. Everything about this studio has not only been handled professionally, but with integrity and grace. The instructors give their best to our kids - in a Christian environment that doesn't compromise values or standards. The annual recitals are first rate and always sends chills down my spine that we are actually a part of this organization and that my kids are a 'part of the show'. It is an honor to share this review with GuideStar - King David Dance Company is the best!

This is a solid christian based dance and music school near Crown Point. Morganne started at age 2 1/2yo and I never questioned the leadership,style of dance or choice of costume. Daily devotions and prayer are part of every lesson.
The economy has caused them to pray more and tighten their
belts while praising GOD and giving quality education to children,girl or boy.
The above is part of my review can you help? http://www2.guidestar.org/

I participated with KDDC during the 2009-2010 season and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my adult life where dance in concerned. I hadn't danced in a structured environment for over 8 years but both Barb and Sal were so patient with me in finding the right fit in regards to what I wanted to work on. This organization is truly a God sent in the fact they do what they do all for the Glory of God and are not ashamed to show that in every facet of their organization from the time you walk in the door. I have learned so much from them both and pray God continues to bless this ministry in ALL there future endeavors.

KDCC dance company helped me to give of my time to God. These two people (Sal and Barb) are soooo dedicated to helping our youth to grow and in the things of God through the Performing Arts. They have shown young people how to worship God in the Dance, the Song, the Sign Language, and the Acting; because of this many, many lives have been changed. My life certainly has. If you have a child who has any one of these gifts please give them the opportunity to experience a class at KDCC. They will never be the same again.

The King David Dance Company pursues excellence in Christian ministry through the performing arts. I can personally attest to the dedication of Barbara, Sal, and their support staff. The ministry has always been aimed at bringing people to Christ via the arts, and they do a phenomenal job. The ministry also extends beyond the arts, as the organization strives to simply serve people, in many different capacities. Helping the King David Dance Company with performances was an honor.

King David is so much more than the average studio. I grew up there and now that I have gone off to school I realize what a huge impact it had in my life. Not only do I feel physically well trained but also well equipped in so many other areas. The skills I have taken away from there have aided me in such a variety of ways. I feel able and confident as a student in my dance classes at school. The leaders have poured into my life in a way I cannot even tell and it is because they were so invested and dedicated to me not just as a student but as a person they loved. This studio is such a special place to me because I was able to grow a gift or talent I have but it is also the place where I discovered my passion. I could not recommend it more.

The results of this organization are relatively immediate. The more you take class the more progression you see in yourself. I was able to experience results the entire time I was a student. I continue to benefit from the results as I continue to dance.
