Former Artistic Director of Gotta Dance Dance Academy, Tucson AZ

"Kelly King has taught Ballet, Jazz, and Modern Dance classes for adults as well as Ballet, Tap, and Tumbling for young children at my studio, Gotta Dance Dance Academy, since it's formation 4 years ago.  I can give my highest recommendation to Kelly and can say without reservation, that she is among the finest dance instructors I have worked with.  Kelly's mastery of technique and professional manner make her supremely qualified to teach adults.  Her patience and grace when teaching children are qualities that I admire.  Kelly's love for life and passion for dance are evident in the classes she teaches and it has been a pleasure having her on my staff."

"Kelly King is an artful instructor that considers the body as a whole. I went to her for some prep for an audition and got more than I could have asked for. Her whole approach to the body’s connectivity is insightful and motivating. She examines inner motivations for movement and works with each dancer’s learning style. I was able to be my very best at the audition and in fact, I got the job. Thank you so much for your help Kelly!"

"Oh my goodness, what did you do!! Deanna looks like a totally different dancer.  No more weak left side-she is equally strong on both sides-the strength in her feet developed substantially. . . Kudos to your training.  Six months has gone by since I've last seen her & the advancement regarding her strength and placement is amazing."

"Kelly King is an instructor whose first concern is always the safety and well-being of her clients.  Her knowledge of the body and its mechanisms has allowed her to create an intense fitness program that will help any individual to achieve his or her weight loss goals.  Not only does her program help to increase muscle strength and flexibility, but it does so in a way that is safe and functionally beneficial to the body and its structure.  As a professional dancer who is consistently physically active I was astonished at how her class impacted my body.  The movement she uses finds new ways to engage muscles which helps to overcome plateaus that those who are in exceptional physical shape experience so often, but are still simple enough to be executed by a beginner. I would recommend Kelly's classes to anyone who is looking to strengthen their body, get in incredible shape, and lose weight! Kelly has an incredible impact as an instructor both physically and mentally.  Her encouragement and enthusiasm make taking class with her a blast!"
