The summer intensive ballet program is phenomenal. Great value for the money. There is no need to travel elsewhere for this exceptional training right in our backyard.
We moved to Credo in 2010. Our previous experience in dance training had included good knowledge and great showmanship. When we arrived at Credo we were overwhelmed by the focus on each dancer's relationship with the Lord and developing this relationship as each student fine tuned his or her dance skill. The dance education is top quality. Our oldest is thoroughly prepared to continue dance at one of the top universities in the US. What has amazed us at Credo has been the the spiritual training our dancers have experienced! We watched as our children have been involved in Bible Studies, experienced accountability groups, memorized Scripture, and used creative movement to worship our Lord, which included a mission trip where Credo students led others in their relationship with God. I am forever thankful that my children's lives will always be changed because of their time at Credo Dance Academy.
Our daughter is in her fourth year at Credo Dance Academy. As parents, we value the excellent training in dance she is receiving, but even more so, we value the Christ-centered dance. While fostering her passion for creativity, instructors are training her to use her God-given talents to bring honor to our Creator. It is a joy for our daughter to dance here. She also enjoys the shared experience with the other dancers.
Credo Dance Academy has been such a blessing in my life. I have been a student here since the Fall of 2011. When I joined Credo, I had just left a different studio where the Lord and dance never intertwined. I had talented teachers but they never taught me to truly worship with my dancing. Credo is where I learned to do that. The teachers here truly poured into my dancing AND my relationship with Christ. I've learned so much in my 8 years at Credo; not only about dancing, but also about the Lord. The steps that I have learned and the friendships I've made will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am so grateful for Credo Dance Academy and all of the people who have been a part of it.
“This is our sixth year at Credo and I love it.”
“My 10 year old daughter has been dancing at Credo for over 7 years, and I am so thankful that we made the
choice to go with this studio all of those years ago. We initially chose Credo because it was a Christian dance
academy that not only believes in modesty, but is also is kind and body positive. I didn't want to send my child
into an environment where she would eventually be shamed if she was short or had a round tummy. I didn't
realize at the time (when I was an exhausted mom of toddlers), but every week I was dropping her off into more
than just a ballet class. She was in a class where they learned to listen, learned to be respectful, and learned a
true love of dance.
Fast forward 7 years, and we are at Credo 4 nights a week and she is taking 5 different classes. She has never
been shamed for not having the stereotypical "dancer's body". Instead, she's never been self-conscious about
her body because she has learned over the years that her body is strong and she can use it in a positive way to
express herself. There are so many things that we love about Credo, but what I love the most is that it is a
place where my daughter is safe. Her heart is safe and she feels safe to be herself. I am also completely
confident that she is receiving the very best dance education there is in Springfield, MO. Our directors are
wonderful and talented, and our studios are beautiful. You will not regret sending your child to Credo.”

“When our daughter wanted to take dance, we were unsure where to go. We tried classes at a few studios, but
once our daughter tried an introductory class at Credo, she felt at home. When our younger daughter tried a
ballet class, she also loved it. Credo has been more than just a positive experience. The classes, teachers, and
the Christ-centered environment have given our daughters confidence, poise, and determination to do hard
things. We love Credo!”

Credo has an excellent environment for girls of all ages. In addition to ballet, they have hip-hop classes with one of the best teachers available and the movements and music are appropriate and not anything you would have to monitor which is an ease to your mind these days! We love the place and highly recommend it!
