Competitive Training

Students may train in four levels of competition. This gives those who want to be more involved the opportunity to do it at a level that fits their life and schedule. Students who want to train to become a professional dancer would choose to train at the highest level of competition.

Generations PAC has provided and continues to provide a wonderful experience for our daughter. The dance instruction is first rate and it is delivered in a kind, inclusive, and positive manner. Generations has classes and programs for all ages, and skill levels. They clearly strive to make the experience of dance positive and fulfilling for their students. The atmosphere of collegiality among the students at Generations is something that we noticed right away and really appreciate. Generations has companies within the school that compete (and excel!) in high level competition while not making competition the main focus of the school. If competition is not for you, there are still many learning and performing options available to you. As a parent, I feel very comfortable and confident in recommending Generations PAC to you. Come visit them and decide for yourself.

Poised and Professional

Hi Angie

I wanted to take a minute to let you know how pleased we continue to be with Generations. There was a noticeable difference between your studio and the others represented at our competitions recently. I am very proud to say my daughters dance at Generations.

The girls were poised, professional, very well behaved and most of all, well-trained. You, and all of the other teachers are going above and beyond in teaching the girls about being a good person as well as a good dancer and that says a lot. I just wanted you to know how much I continue to appreciate what's going on at your studio. I look forward to being able to be more involved in the future. What you are dong is a wonderful thing.

Thank you

Dance and Faith

Thank you so much for everything. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that Maggie dances at your studio. Your staff is so kind and you teach not only a solid dance curriculum, but a valuable lesson in faith (which is hard to come by in today's society). I look forward to Maggie dancing with you for a very long time.

Sincerely,

Rose

Both of my daughters have received excellent dance training from Generations as well as a place away from home where they truly feel like they matter! They are two entirely different people and dancers who have been able to hone their skills to the best of their abilities which speaks to the versatility of the Generations staff and their teaching methods. You will not find a more professional, more organized, or more caring environment to take your child to receive dance training. It truly is the best there is!

Dear Angie,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you both for running such a wonderful dance studio. After attending the dance competition at Louisville last year, and the one in Mason today, I continue to be thankful that Generations is a performing arts center that focuses on keeping the integrity and innocence of our girls (and boys) at the heart of costuming, music, and routine selections. I continue to be amazed at the talent of the young people at Generations, and am so happy and thankful that Madelyn has an opportunity to grow as a dancer and as a person at Gen-Pac.

Sincerely,

Tami Hinz

Mentors...

I love that you use the older girls as big sis/mentors for the younger girls.  The older girls set a positive example and are responsible girls who handle themselves very well.

Favorite thing as a parent...

My favorite thing as a parent about Generations is that you value and teach each girl as an important person, not just a number or one of many dancers in your studio. I truly appreciate how you hold the girls to task, hold them accountable, and make them work hard but you do it in a loving and kind way. Your values as Christians really show through and we love that! I can't think of a better way for my daughter to spend her time. She is learning dance, but also learning valuable life lessons. I had been meaning to send you a note after the Mason competition about this. It was our first experience in a competition and I cannot tell you how impressed I was with our dancers and your choice of costumes, appropriate choreography, and rules of conduct. I was completely shocked to see how some of the other dance studios had their girls dressed, the dance moves they used, and their attire when walking around the hallway. It was quite a contrast to Generations dancers. It made me so happy as a parent. I truly want you to know how much I appreciate you! I will support Rachel dancing with you as much and as long as she desires! You are helping to raise great kids.

We are relatively new to dance and we LOVE Generations! You do a wonderful job with the girls. We chose Generations because 2 of Rachel's friends were students there. She was interested for a while, but we actually signed up for summer classes after Elizabeth brought Rachel to 'bring a friend to dance' day one May. Summer classes were a nice way to get started with a short commitment to see if she liked it. (She did!)

Absolutely fantastic place to send your children to learn dance! Very well organized programs for all ages. Our oldest daughter has been going here for a few years and every instructor has been very caring and talented. Can't wait to see our next daughter join in!

Joel

We are going into our eighth season with dancers at Generations, and we've had a wonderful experience. There are many options for recreational dancers, as well as though who want to compete/train more seriously. Recitals are beautifully done and run like a well-oiled machine. I appreciate the tasteful costumes, great communication, and helpful/friendly staff. Highly recommend this studio!

Jennie

Our son gives it a 10/0 (10 being how much he likes it / 0 being how much he dislikes it). He's grown a lot in his coordination, confidence and developing new friendships here.
