"Michiana Dance is my studio of choice because of the friendly, courteous atmosphere, where there is no competition, just a fun time for students of all levels. The advanced students help the beginners in the hope that they will continue their ballroom recreation for many years, and become a part of our growing dance family....I treasure what I have gained from Michiana Dance, its teachers and students."- Arlene, Student for 12 Years and Counting
