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.

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!

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.

The Great!

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.

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.

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!

give it more money to make it easier to scholarship the gifted that can't afford traditional years of training. They spread the money thin without losing quality. There are always more that ca nbe served

For the second year King David Dance Company has been a fantastic part of our daughter Jordyn's life.
She is 6 years old and participates in the wednesday after school beginning dance class with Ms. Barbara.
Not only is she learning dance skills, but she receives positive instruction in a
very biblically based environment.
She is learning discipline in dance, but it is reinforced with love.
Her self confidence has greatly improved as well as her dance abilities.
I would recommend this organization and the wonderful people that work there to anyone and everyone.
They are a wonderful group of very loving individuals who not only share their talents but their love of Christ through their interaction with others.
They are truly a blessing and an inspiration.

I have been involved with King David since I was 12 years old. I met the owners Sal and Barb at the dance studio I was attending at the time. I have always loved to dance. After meeting with them I knew that King David is where I needed to be. This dance company allowed me to do what I love while combining it with my love for the Lord. In addition to dance I learned so much more like drama, sign language, and how to be a better Christian. To this day I still see the results of my time spent at King David. I'm 22 years old now and a first year teacher working with children with Autism. At times when I am at my ropes end I still hear the words of Mr. Sal “I know it hurts but keep pushing.” At the time he said it he was referring to me stretching in a middle split as he pulled on my arms to give me that “extra stretch.” Now in life when I feel I can’t accomplish a task and I’ve stretched myself to the limit I know I can push that little bit farther and still survive even when it gets painful. I will always hear Mrs. Barbara’s voice in my head when a co-worker or student pushes my buttons and I would love to say exactly what is on my mind! “I only want to hear what is for the building up and edification of others.” She always had a knack for wording everything in a positive way that would build all of us up instead of tear us down. All in all, King David didn’t just teach me how to tap and leap and turn. King David taught me how to live successfully by teaching me principles that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I can’t think of any greater reward than that.

Just wanted to state that every time I have seen a presentation by King David Dance Company, it has been one of excellence and variety. They have performances 2-3 times a year, and I have seen a number of them over the past few years. They must be good teachers, because the students are energetic and full of energy as they perform, and that has to be taught.

I would recommend this group if you are looking for a dance company that puts a great deal of energy and time into each student. They get results out of all their dancers, and the dancers sure look like they are having fun doing it.

I would try to find more dancers who could be involved in this great dance company. If they tried it out, they would not go anywhere else.
