INSPIRA REVIEWS

"I like InSpira because I have learned a lot about dance and music and have made very good friends there.  I took ballet and tap classes when I was younger and I now take piano lessons.  Next year I plan on adding an additional music class and going back to dance class.  Music is one of my passions and InSpira helps me to stay interested in music."

INSPIRA REVIEWS

"Our son took instrumental lessons at InSpira and now, our daughter is in her 2nd year of dance classes and it looks like we're going to be apart of the InSpira family for a very long time.   Ms. Kris is loving and patient; but a no-mess teacher with high expectations.  It's crystal clear how much she (and Mr. Leon) cares and believes in the children.  In addition, the Administrative staff is always available and helpful.  IPACC is truly a positive and inspirational environment for the entire family."

INSPIRA REVIEWS

InSpira is truly inspiring! I have taken Adult Classes at the studio since 2005. The teachers at InSpira are caring, exacting, and supportive, and the administrative staff is always helpful. My seven-year-old son has taken ballet and tap classes for three years, and he enjoys it very much. It has helped him with balance, memorization, discipline, and concentration. The owners have created a business that feels like a great big extended family! Ms. Kris Smith and Mr. Leon Smith are model small business owners—they are deeply engaged in the community and they love their work.

Goldman Sachs 10,000

Kristine Smith graduated from the prestigious Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program.

FEB 2014

InSpira has allowed our daughter an outlet to express her creativity, her desire, her competitiveness, her intellect in a loving and committed environment. She radiates with a different energy on the days of her class, almost as if her mind and body cannot wait to be instructed in the next set of sequences. This is something we as parents wish we could bottle up and provide her and say, "this will help you" on the days she is without InSpira! Ms. Kris has done a phenomenal work in pouring herself into her craft, which is reflected in the outcomes within InSpira - children, teens, and young adults who not only have a great appreciation of the arts, but a greater understanding of love. A love of who they are, a love of where they are, and a love of who and what they will become.
