"I am moving back to Dallas on Sunday and I wanted to thank you for bringing dance back into my life. These past few months have been an emotional roller coaster and it has meant the world to be able to get back to something I love! Wishing you the best." -C. Mandelbaum

"I can't thank you enough for having the drive and inspiration to make CKDC a reality. Training in dance is something I always wanted to do but never really had the opportunity until I was an adult. You really are helping me fulfill a dream. Thank you for all that you do." -K. Urday


"Arica, the Founder, is the best. She not only is a beautiful dancer, but her passion and knowledge shine bright. Her encouragement has made me push farther and harder. Whether you're brand new to dance or if you're like me and took an eight year sabbatical, the Beginning classes will cater to you. Gradually, I've taken the Intermediate which also gives me motivation to be better. When i take class, that's where I'm at. My head isn't at work or at home. It's therapeutic. I don't plan on stopping any time soon." B. Ramsey

"Your concert was phenomenal. Keep up the good work!" -M. Viau

"I've taken a lot of classes there and they have all been amazing. The dance teachers are really caring and passionate about what they do. I am so happy to have found CKDC. It is one of the things about St. Louis that I love the most." S. VanStee

"When my seven year old son wanted to take Hip Hop lessons, I wasn't sure where to start. I found classes near our home, but one studio wasn't very clean and another didn't have a well-trained instructor. A third was out of our price range. I nearly gave up until I found Consuming Kinetics. Both of my sons are dancing now! This is fantastic because my oldest son is tall and at risk of being gangly. He's becoming more coordinated and both boys are growing in their physical confidence. I'm trying the adult classes that are offered at the same time. This is surprising because I don't love to exercise, but I feel supported here to try something new. Even on a bad day, we all walk out feeling glad we attended. In CKDC, we found energetic, well-planned instruction at a price we can afford. There are discounts for multiple classes/more than one child enrolled. On months when we are away, we can pay a per-class fee instead of monthly rates. Perhaps most important, I feel like my children are known and liked at CKDC. The instructors seem to take the time to really see what each kid needs to work on and even though I'm an elementary teacher, it still baffles me that they are able to offer such individual encouragement and direction in a group setting." A. Cummings

"CKDC is by far the best! When I was new to St. Louis and didn't know anyone, as I was often traveling for work, I always felt I could easily jump in to a class. Arica is an amazing choreographer and has something for everyone. It's nothing but above average and a great time. Having danced all the way up until high school, I felt lost as an adult going to a ballet company or trying to join adult dance, without being behind or out of place. Arica has created a place where everyone can join, whenever it's convenient for you. After two and a half years of following them, I'm so sad to move away and lose such a great and healthy influence in my life. If you live in St. Louis, you have to go try one class! You won't regret it." J. Werckle
