Testimonials

KICKS Dance Studio has been instrumental in solidifying the passion for dance in our children! The high level of expectation is met with a very positive approach to instill a balanced environment for our children as they build strength and skill. It is no wonder that KICKS continues to be awarded “The TOP Choice” award!

My daughter has been going to KICKS for 7 years and just loves it! The owner, Jo-Ann Ko, is always on site to answer my questions with a smile. Her enthusiasm just shines through and you just know that she wants all her students to enjoy dance as much as she does! The teachers are top notch, the facilities are clean and bright, and the studio is always so well organized from registration through to the annual recital. I can’t imagine going anywhere else, I proudly recommend KICKS to all my friends looking for a high quality dance studio!

My daughter Kelly has been dancing at KICKS for several years now. The quality of teaching is outstanding!

Jo-Ann and Courtney, I’d just like to thank both of you for the positive influence you’ve had on my daughter’s life. The excitement in her voice, the confidence, and the overall positive attitude she has about being successful can be directly attributed to both of you and your teachings about dance, commitment, passion, integrity, and positive attitude about life in general. It goes without saying that you two are very special to Jocelyn, and to her dad. You have provided her with an extremely rewarding experience which she will not easily forget…and for me, you’ve provided a parent with the ultimate in happiness, a child who loves what she does, wants to do more, and shows a sense of pride. Just thought I’d share that with you. I don’t know how I can repay either of you other than to continue to say thank you!

Dear Courtney and Jo-Ann, After seeing the show last night I would like to congratulate you on how tasteful it was. After having the recent opportunity to attend another Markham studio’s recital, I was very pleased to be reminded that KICKS adheres to a higher ethical and moral standard than some other dance companies. The costumes in your show were tasteful and appropriate for children and young adults. The dance moves were wonderfully choreographed and not sexually suggestive.
Thank you very much for remembering that the majority of dancers in the show are children and the people in the audience are there to see their children dance. All of the dancers were able to show off their abilities to the highest level, without sensationalizing the dances with a lot of bare skin and suggestive moves. You and your staff have done a wonderful job. The show was very well done. Thank you.

Congratulations on once again putting together an excellent dance recital. Your dedication, enthusiasm and commitment are truly amazing gifts which we are so fortunate to have you share with our children. Kudos to you and your awesome staff.

I want to thank KICKS for the congratulatory notes you have for Andrea at the studio. Thank you so much for all your support and I want to take this opportunity to also thank Courtney, Shana, and Mrs.Finn……many of Andrea’s musical accomplishments are a result of the excellent training and coaching provided by her teachers at KICKS during these past years.

My congratulations to the whole KICKS team on an outstanding recital. I am so impressed by the quality of the dances, the choreography and the dancers. You simply just blow me away every year. That is why I love coming to KICKS. The dances that sent goosebumps down my back, and almost had me in tears were the Rhythm Tap and the beautiful White lyrical routine. Simply breathtaking. I also have to tell you how much I love the Dads dance! I was laughing hysterically. What a great touch. Congratulations. That is why your studio is the best. You must be so proud.

Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you committed to my dancing. KICKS has brought me some of the happiest times of my life!

Wow! 15 years at KICKS and you’re still going! You have opened the door of dancing to so many girls and boys in the past years and that takes such an incredible amount of talent and dedication. You are truly a remarkable teacher and business woman and friend! I hope KICKS is around forever because you provided such a positive environment for me and for so many. Congratulations!
