A few years ago we were drawn to the beautiful white tent outside in Carmel Valley...and our daughters danced there with joy, all during COVID. Under the warm and welcoming but highly educated, experienced & attentive eyes of Miss Miah, Miss Audrey, Miss Holly and others, we have stayed and continued their dance education at SPAA. What a gift to give them: discipline, rigor, beauty & athleticism cultivating in the form of art through all genres of dance.

Nothing but good things to say about our experience at SPAA. About six years ago when we were looking for a new ballet studio for our daughter Erin (10 years old at the time), Ms Miah and SPAA were recommended to us as a top notch non-competition ballet focused studio. Erin chose SPAA over other studios we visited due to her interactions with Ms Miah and what she felt she could learn from her. Six years later and my daughter and her passion for ballet is thriving at SPAA, under the guidance of Ms Miah and her other teachers. Over the years she has progressed to pointe and moved from beginning to intermediate to advanced class levels when she was physically and emotionally ready. She has also expanded her love of ballet to include jazz, modern, contemporary, lyrical and tap. SPAA considers each child individually and nurtures the whole child, not just the dancer. She has also made incredible friends with her fellow dancers, including both younger and older dancers that took her under their wings and have been her biggest cheerleaders as she takes on more challenging roles in performances including the Nutcracker and the spring and June shows. It was so great to be back in the theater and see the kids dance again for the Nutcracker earlier this month. Erin has attended multiple winter and summer intensives at SPAA and, with Ms Miah's guidance and support, has also auditioned and got in to multiple summer programs with ballet companies and attended a 5 week program at Ballet West in Salt Lake during 2021 and will attend Boston Ballet's 5 week summer program in 2022. I could go on but the bottom line is that SPAA is an excellent dance studio family that supports the whole child, whether the child wants to dance for fun or is seeking a professional career in dance...it's always about the child and helping them be the best dancer they can be! Ballet has been the constant for my daughter over the last few years with the pandemic and it has taught her that dedication and commitment will help her excel in all areas of her life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Jennifer Brown

It has been truly a joy to watch my daughters grow and thrive as dancers over the years, all because of the wonderful environment at Scripps Performing Art Academy (SPAA). Both of them have danced at other local studios, with great confidence I do believe SPAA is a wonderful studio and I will highly recommend. SPAA offers different dance classes, my daughters have the opportunities to explore them during the summer and they love them all! By participating in various dance classes, summer intensive programs and dance performances, they have learned great dance technique and choreograph while building a portfolio of self-esteem and confidence. At SPAA, Miss Miah and all other wonderful teachers go above and beyond to make every student feel special, valued and part of a wonderful dance team (without any bad competitive vibe). My daughters look forward to their classes each week, both of them have created great friendship with their dance buddies. This is particularly precious during the Covid pandemic, SPAA has been able to continue their classes with excellent safety protocols, my daughters were able to attend their classes in person, and they danced beautifully in toughing performances of Nutcracker and a Year-end production, in an outdoor studio. Thank you Miss Miah and all of the SPAA teachers for nurturing the resilient and creative souls of all your dancers and giving them your love and support, especially during challenging time!
