What People say about the PADC!
“Very sad to be letting go of 10 wonderful years of watching my beautiful ballerina blossom into a very talented, multi-discipline dancer. Saving one (costume) from her first ballet performance and one from her final dance concert. Her dance classes taught her much more than the art of dance, and those lessons have made her who she is and will continue to influence her the rest of her life. I am forever grateful to the Pointe Academy Dance Center and MaryBeth Tremp-Seeger for being the family-oriented studio they are. It was all a very worthwhile experience.”
“It is important to me that Ally’s and Pointe Academy Dance legacy lives on in some manner … It was such a positive and life-changing experience not just for Ally, but our family. Our time at the Pointe will always be warmly and fondly remembered.
We are very happy at this studio, We came from one in Troy that we were not happy with at all. The staff is super friendly, supportive and amazing instructors. The entire atmosphere is like a family, this is a very welcoming and inviting studio, I would recommend it to anyone!
Thought you might be excited to hear that I am taking an into to dance class for my art credit at school! It is very interesting so far. We are studying and analyzing the history of dance instead of actually dancing.
We’re going to dance performances to critique and applaud what we observed. The professor made it very clear that we are studying dance as an art, not as a competitive form, even though it is a common way to execute dance. Pointe Academy has always taught me many of these lessons already! Thank you for having the studio that you do. I miss it so much already!

My daughter, who previously refused to participate in other dance classes, has flourished so much just in 2 months! She’s so excited for the fall season and I owe it to the energetic happy teachers!
Between my 3 daughters (one with special needs) we have danced at 4 different studios in the area. We have had a very negative experience with bullying at another studio in particular. Pointe Academy's nurturing, non-competitive (but still striving for excellence), and family friendly environment is exactly why we will dance no where else, even though the location is not particularly close for us. The teachers really care about the dancers and offer loving, professional instruction. The studio is small, but that is also one thing I like about it, because the dancers get to know each other and become one big, supportive family. Pointe Academy is a real jewel in Rochester Hills!
Pointe Academy Dance Center is a wonderful place for young dancers who want recreational or pre-professional dance training. The teachers provide a warm, inviting family-friendly environment and instill the valuable lessons the discipline and art form has to offer – such as positive self-esteem, self-worth and academic success. As a former student, dance professional, and now mom to two girls, I’m thankful for my former years dancing at PADC and even more grateful that my daughters will have the same opportunity to thrive in a positive environment.
Our family has been involved at the Pointe Academy Dance Center for the last 9 years. Two of my daughters have worked their way through 3 levels of classes in many different styles and I have begun to enjoy ballet for 3 years in the adult ballet class. Another daughter has also taken some ballet classes. We were involved in 3 other dance studios in the area before we were blessed to discover the Pointe Academy. The studio is large enough to provide a variety of classes with expert instructors, but small enough to care. The director, whom her students affectionately call Ms. MaryBeth, is involved in teaching every level of ballet from pre-dance through the repertory company. She has the unique background of a BFA in Dance and an MA in Counseling. She cares for each girl through her interest and love for them, and expects much of them through their dance, behavior, and treatment of each other. Although it is a non-competitive studio, all of the instructors teach at a high level and inspire the utmost levels of technique and artistry in their students. They put forth energy toward their art and caring for each other as a family, rather than competing. They give back to the community through their Holiday Show to benefit ALS of Michigan and other events throughout the year. They encourage participation in dance conventions and scholarship at school. I have a daughter with special needs that has been welcomed with open arms into the Pointe Family. The teachers include her in a way that elevates each student at the Pointe. Seeing her smile as she dances with other students and teachers who value her is priceless. Another daughter has formed close relationships with the girls in the studio and has grown in confidence, ability, and personal skills through the guidance of the wonderful staff. I give the Pointe Academy of Dance my highest recommendation as a place to develop the whole person through the art of dance.
