My daughter and son's were members of LQ's Performing Arts from opening in 2004 through 2010. They took hiphop, breakdancing, acting, vocal and ballet. It gave them confidence to push to succeed, it showed them to be organized and scheduled. We have so many wonderful memories and friends that were made. It made them feel a part of something extraordinary and we all have been and still are very proud to say we are from LQ's Performing Arts Center.

I've been dancing with LQ's Performing Arts Center on and off for the past eight years. Not only has it been a safe place to go to let loose and dance, it's become my second family. The people involved are so nice and easygoing, I always walk out with a smile on my face. LQ's kept me out of trouble when I was younger and helped me focus on things I want in life. It really is a great organization.

I put my daughter In LQs, it was one of the best things i did for my daughter. LQs, made a difference in her life. LQs wasnt about taking a class, it was family. It gave my daughter confidence, selfworth, and making goals for herself. She was given new experiences about life and i thank Ms. Milner for that.

Lq's is a wonderful organization that provides a positive outlet for people of all ages to express themselves through the world of dance. Everyone is treated like family. I've been connected to the organization for years and love being able to watch these kids who came in with little to no experience grow on stage. They are very talented individuals whose confidence has been built to do what they do best and what's in their hearts and that is dance. I guess the best I can say is, these individuals are serious about dance and leave their hearts on that dance floor every time while being respectful.

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

I've watched them perform at numerous events throughout the years. These kids are extremely talented.

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

try to get the community to show more support to keep dance alive in the hearts of the children.

LQ's Performing Arts Center means so much to me. They've helped me out in ways I can not fully describe. Many times I was going through things and the only thing that seemed to keep me in good spirits during the week was the fact that I had to attend class at LQ's. I miss going there.

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

the great motivation methods they use. The instructors really know how to get a student to do what they need to. And the best part of it is that they don't force you to do anything-they make sure you're ready to perform-it becomes a student's decision.
