Words can’t express how much Dancesteps Etc. means to Alyssa and I.Joan Kelly and Jamie Tisbert, you two are truly amazing in so many ways and have brought the “dance family” together! Yesterday at the recital I cried so many times…..tears of joy, sadness, and feeling of love all around. You don’t get that just anywhere! I can’t believe Alyssa only has 2 more years….it seems like yesterday she was on stage at the age of 4 for her first recital!! Thank you both so much for the dedication and love you put into not only the dances but into each student who attends!!!

My Dearest Joan Kelly, From Loganann and I and Bill we want to say congratulations to 25 years of dance! This was the very best show we have had the pleasure to attend. The 4 years Logi has been with you have brought many joys and many tears to this heart of mine. The tears were that of joy to see what you and also Jamie have been able to instill in Loganann. Thank you seems so simple yet it is with all my heart that I say those words to you. Thank you so much for your support during the rough spell we had and your attendance to our family when we needed love to be present. Your heart felt wishes during that time will forever be cherished. I am looking forward to sharing my grand daughters future years with you and your dance company. We enjoy being a part of the gentle kind spirit you give to these children. Thanks always Joan and again Happy 25 years. See you soon. – The Zirngiebel’s

“Hey, I danced at the BEST DANCE SCHOOL EVER from 1994-2008! Those were the best years! I got a wonderful training and thank where I am now as well as my future career to Miss Joan Kelly! Dancers should be lucky to have such a talented technical teacher as her! Her students have respect for one another, a diverse background in dance, wonderful opportunities provided to them and a technical dance ba…ckground all because of her devoted time day in and day out in the studio. Weather it is cold, stormy or hot she will be there either crouched by the heater or the open window ready to play the music and run your dance one more time until you get that third rotation around or your hands to relax. Be glad that you have a dancing spirt and be glad you are at a place that only wants to make you the best you can be! I love you Miss Joan! “ – Jennah Knight
