"Modas Dance has been influential in creating a dance community full of love, passion and engagement between the students and teachers. Modas has shaped me into the artist I am today and spending the last three summers with this amazing faculty has been the best decision I have made so far in my dance career."

Samantha Frost - Dance Major Florida State University

"Modas Dance has helped shape me into the versatile, confident dancer I am today. This program provides a safe space for one to be their most vulnerable in all styles of dance. There is no place else I would rather spend my summer."

Abbey Klinger - Dance Major Point Park University

"Modas Dance fosters each student to be the absolute best individual they can be. There is no pressure to look or move like anyone except for the dancer that the whole faculty knows you are capable of becoming."

"I am incredibly thankful to MODAS and its faculty. Without the training and knowledge I´ve received from Modas over the last few years, especially in the summer programs, I would have never been able to make it to Hubbard Street Profesional Program at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago.
