  • "Annie and Adam, Thanks for putting together a great recital! I think every dancer at your school got an opportunity to shine! How important it is for each dancer's self confidence to have experience getting up in front of an audience and doing their "thing". I think this is an experience they all will remember in the future when they have to stand up in front of a class, business meeting, audience and reach in and find their self confidence. You are building great self esteem in our children! They are learning the life lesson of hard work and putting yourself out there! Thanks for a great year!"

They were great with the kids and excellent with helping out and made sure to extend their help, be it bringing items in or assistance with decorating. I appreciate everything! Thank you! "

  • "I love dancing at Kenosha Academy because of the multiple credited dance teachers who offer a diverse dance education. I often refer to the studio as my "second home" due to the homey feeling and bond I share with all the dancers here. "

  • "In 2006, we were looking for a dance studio for our 6 year-old and our 11 year-old. We discovered the newly opened Academy and met with the Director Annie Hackett. We were extremely impressed with her background and teaching skills. We signed up our daughters and have never looked back.


    Annie and the KAD have been a true blessing to our daughters and to so many others in Kenosha. Our daughter's passion for dance was nurtured and has blossomed into a fulfilling high school dance career which will continue into a dance major in college. The training, experience and exposure to the phenomenal staff have all been important contributions.


    The dance instructors are all extremely well-trained and qualified and elevate the atmosphere which encourages the dancers to strive for excellence. I continue to be impressed with the quality of dance instructors that Annie can attract to the studio.


    I have also seen the dedication that Annie and her husband Adam give to continually improving the Academy. They approach the business with enthusiasm and professionalism."

  • "The Kenosha Academy of Dance has taught my daughter, Alisa for over 6 years of ballet. She has learned many lessons on poise, technique, and laying the foundations of classical ballet. The academy is very welcoming and enjoys teaching children the fundamentals of dancing. They are my daughter's second family because not only is she there 5 days a week, but the teachers and staff members are caring and compassionate about the children as well as their profession. Alisa was recently selected for Company K as she has worked so hard these past years with dance. The academy has worked hard to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our children and as a parent, it makes me feel comfortable to know that my child is surrounded my positive teachers and friendly staff members."

  • "This comes as a thank you to all those involved in the Nutcracker performance which took place on December 21st. I am the proud grandmother of one of your young ballet students - a mouse and part of the Chinese Dragon. From the initial practices to the final rehearsals, this was a very positive experience for her. Her excitement grew each week as the performance took shape. The final rendition was a beautiful testament of all those involved for their many weeks and months of dedication and their love of dance. I, and Jordyn's "whole row" of friends and family enjoyed the performance greatly and we thank all those who played a part in making this happen. Special thanks to Annette Thomann the director. Thank you!"

Thank you for putting up with our crazy years, awkward years, teenage years, and all the stressful times in between. The studio has truly become a second home to us all. Thank you for helping me build my passion. These past seven years have meant the world to me."

  • "Dear Annie, some friends are part of competitive dance teams and posted pics of their girls with medals upon medals around their necks over the weekend. I started reflecting on Alaina's experience this weekend. Instead of focusing on herself and getting to dance for her own glory, she focused on dancing to bring joy to others. She may not totally realize it yet- and she may feel awkward when trying to interact with the elderly residents-- but I feel that she is experiencing a priceless gift through these performances. Thank you for promoting a giving and service-minded spirit rather than a competitive spirit."

  • "Hi Annie, I wanted to send you a note of thanks for including our dance companies in the Inaside Youth Summit yesterday. As a first year company parent, I wasn't sure what to expect. It was an all around great experience. It was a very positive experience for Hannah, she enjoyed performing in this venue and she was mesmerized by watching the other dancers. There was such a variety of performances and it was good for her to see all that you can do with dance! I know it is a lot of work getting the girls ready for performances and sitting with them all day, I am very appreciative of how dedicated you and the other directors are to the company and to promoting dance in our community. We feel very lucky to be getting such a quality dance education so close to home. I think the best parts of the day, for me, were seeing Hannah with girls who will likely be lifelong friends and seeing her excitement as she came out of the performance at the end of the show. (Also the performance about bullying - with dancers in white and two in red - that brought me to tears - WOW - that was powerful!) Thanks again for a great day!"

Very wide range of singing, dance and instruments in several rooms simultaneous. Parents can sit and watch multiple tvs in the waiting room. I would highly recommend."
