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.

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!

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.

My daughter has enjoyed her participation with this organization since she was 4 years old. I have seen her grow in her dance technique as well as her self-confidence and spiritual maturity. I can highly recommend King David Dance Company to others.

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 took both ballet and jazz dancing classes at the King David Dance Company and absolutely loved them. The classes were a great size to allow for personal attention from the instructors, and the environment was both challenging and supportive for an adult beginner like I was. I would recommend the Company to people of any age interested in taking dance classes, either to develop professionally, or for their own personal enjoyment.

King David Dance Company has been a blessing to me and my family. It is not just an ordinary performing arts school. It is a ministry. The students are taught to worship God through the arts and are encouraged to express their faith through fellowship, devotions and prayer. The staff is MAGNIFICENT! With true professionalism and sincerity, the teachers exemplify the poise, modesty and discipline that is taught to the students.
This is my child's 5th year dancing, and her 2nd year at King David Dance Company. We've FINALLY found the right place, and we have every intention on staying here. At King David Dance Company, our family is home!

To whom it may concern:
I am a minister at a United Methodist Church in Mineral Springs, North Carolina. On several occasions, we have had the King David Dance Company share programs with us for our Family Ministry events. These are intergenerational events, involving the entire church family. Response to the programs has been overwhelming. Not only are they very professionally done, they are extremely meaningful and moving. I am so glad to have been able to offer our church this kind of family worship experience.

We have been a part of this amazing ministry for over 10 years. My thirteen year old daughter began dancing with them when she was three, and we feel like they are part of our family. Sal and Barb and the entire staff are godly people who have committed their lives to pour Jesus and themselves into their students. In addition, with their training and experience, they impart a level of excellence to these students that is unparalleled. We love King David!

My daughter has danced at the studio for over 10 years and I danced for 2. This is a safe place for all to enjoy the arts in the Lord. With piano, voice and dance, all participants can use their gifts to the glory of God. I look forward to every season, seeing new people expressing themselves...IT IS GREAT!

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.

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/
