“CYGNIFY was my daughter’s first performance with CKDS and my husband & I were just AMAZED! We expected a good show yes but our expectations were exceeded by far. Every performance was well choreographed and the dancers did a great job. The music selections had us moving in our seats and the lighting was professional. My tears of joy were flowing beginning with the first performance, which my daughter was not in by the way : ) My daughter was so excited during her performance and after and she cannot wait for next year!  Thank you to all the hardworking staff at CKDS for an amazing year!”

“We are truly happy that we made the decision to enroll her [in CKDS]. We were looking for a place where learning the fundamentals of dance, technique, discipline and respect were emphasized rather than a dance school that taught dance just for the sake of dancing, which was the case at the previous school she went to. The teachers and staff are very courteous and professional – they’ve taken the time to get to know our daughter as well as her individual needs and abilities. After such an amazing spring performance, we can’t imagine her dancing anywhere else but here!”

“We so loved the diversity of Cynthia’s show “CYGNIFY!” It was our first one ever. We were so impressed with how much joy and pride all children displayed during their performance. How seriously hard they all worked. The mix of classic dance training. Modern and Hip Hop is fantastic. This school is amazing and we are thrilled to have our kids enrolled. They are inspired and it has boosted their confidence. They are getting an incredible workout and I love Cynthia’s formality in teaching. It sets up their future posture and opens the door to culture movement and love of training!”

“Our daughter attends CKDS and we are very happy with the studio. Mrs. King has a great philosophy that includes positive reinforcement, good health, and esteem-building. Dancers adhere to simple and affirming rules and guidelines, that help build good relations and nurture a creative environment. There is no obsession with body shape, and all dancers are afforded attention from the faculty. I recommend CKDS without hesitation.”

“Love this studio!!! Cynthia King Dance Studio is one of a kind…the instructors are wonderful and the classes are motivating. Cynthia’s energy is infectious – you will always leave her classes feeling so good about yourself that you can’t wait to go back!”

“Cynthia is a lively, intelligent teacher with a great sense of humor and a strong knowledge of dance technique. What I really like about her is that she makes her class a safe haven to explore and learn ballet – no matter what age or body type you are – and gives genuinely helpful corrections in a nonjudgmental manner. Her classes are also a lot of fun, with great combinations that challenge you in a good way. [She also offers one] of the few adult ballet classes I’ve located in Brooklyn, and is particularly welcoming to adult ballet beginners.”
