Miss Kim is a professional, warm and loving teacher and mentor. She and her teachers offer a quality dance curriculum at the studio. Our daughter loves going to CACD, it is more than a dance studio, it is a safe and nurturing place, as she says its her second home. All the girls get to know each other very well and they are like a family. During class time they are learning amazing dance techniques, and when competing on stage their dancing stands out, it is in its own class. From the first day to now, 4 years in a row you can notice all that our daughter has learned and how passionate she is about dance. Kim nurtures talent, but also teaches the girls valuable life skills. Kim's high standard of teaching is second to none, and we are so incredibly lucky to have her on the North Shore.
At CACD, dance is truly an art, and a way of life. Through movement, music, emotion, steady practice and evolving relationships, CACD comes together in a living choreography, a studio of committed teachers and dancers working and growing together over years.
CACD is a wonderful place to dance. My daughter joined CACD 5 yrs ago. We had originally signed her up to keep her busy after school and to keep active. We never thought we would now be competing in Company dance. Her love, passion, desire and commitment to dance has grown over these past years. Miss Kim has contributed to this success and passion. Her love and commitment that she shares with her students is incredibly sincere. She has given my daughter the self-confidence to dance freely and become a strong young woman. It is amazing to watch my daughter and the other girls in her company perform and master the art of dance. Miss Kim is dedicated to teach her students how to love dance and she has shown my daughter the meaning of a true dancer.
Within CACD, Kim Blisard has created an incredibly nurturing environment, where young dancers blossom into spectacular performers and strong, kind, confident young adults. We are very lucky to have this rare combination right nearby!
CACD appealed to me as a place of free expression in dance, and has proven to be just that over my time here. It’s a supportive and loving environment that pushes me to be my best in and out of the studio!
I joined CACD about five years ago and since then I have become apart of a family of nurturing teachers and amazing friends. Miss Kim is so invested in making sure all of her students are happy and successful in both dance and in their personal lives. Because of this my love for dance has grown immensely. The studio has provided me with so many amazing performance opportunities, at both local and prestigious venues such as Lincoln Center and Alvin Ailey. I've grown so much throughout my time at CACD and can't believe that I'm entering my senior year with this special family.
Cape Ann Center for Dance is a safe and welcoming place for students to freely express themselves. Personally, it has become my home away from home, and l have gained a large dance family that loves and supports one another.
