See what people are saying about PCDA!

PCDA has been nothing short of amazing to our daughter for the past 4 years. Throughout her time at PCDA Makaila has always been treated with so much kindness and love. In addition she has always been pushed to be her best in all aspects of dance. I love the way PCDA has helped our sweet beautiful girl shine and see value in herself that I am not certain she would have found elsewhere. We are forever grateful and love our PCDA family!



So helpful - very organized

This was our first year at PCDA , and the first moment I stepped into the office to sign my daughter Mariah up for classes, I felt the love from the staff.  They were so helpful and very nice.  Myself and my daughter truly enjoyed being a part of the studio.  PCDA is very organized, and they communicate through emails.  The doors are always open if you are in need.  So I say thank you for such a great time this year, and we will be returning for the fall!  






They make dance fun

My daughter, Janie, started taking ballet/tap lessons at PCDA when she was three years old. This fall will be her fourth year and she LOVES it!! We have been very pleased with her instructors each year. The one thing I love most about PCDA is the staff. They are able to make dance fun for the little ones while teaching discipline and technique. The recitals at the end of the year are always entertaining. I would definitely recommend PCDA!

A wonderful, loving and talented dance studio providing a positive environment for dancers to thrive in.

Many years of my childhood were spent under the beautiful instruction of Barbara Strausbaugh, Michelle Williams, and a few other talented ladies. Over 20 years later, I am so happy to see the legend lives on and the Dance Academy is alive and thriving. Alot of great memories here, I learned so much and continued my love for dance as an adult. Outstanding dance teachers! I cannot express how grateful I am to the teachers for first rate instruction, discipline and patience. A truly wonderful place.


A Truly Wonderful Place


Michelle and her staff teach more than just dance they inspire respect, honesty, kindness, teamwork, and family. Every time I watch any of our dancers I am proud to be a part of PCDA.


More than just dance

The teachers are fun, approachable, talented and know how to work with and teach children of all ages proper form and technique in super fun ways. The full class time is utilized giving you your money's worth of instruction. The owner is super nice, helpful and is always on site & available, which is great! The "viewing windows" are amazing! I love watching my daughter learn and perform. The other dance moms are so friendly, sharing and look out for each other in helpful ways making it a big family atmosphere. Very professional & welcoming studio. Well worth our short drive from Callaway! Highly recommend!!!

Our family has three dancers that love every second of their time at the studio. Michelle and all of the teachers and staff go above and beyond to let all dancers shine and encourage them in all that they do!!  We have tried many other studios in the area but only until we came to Panama City Dance Academy did we feel like a part of a family!  This is a family of talented, fun and loving dancers and staff! Our girls are pushed to be their best, and their growth has been amazing!   Our girls choose to do a lot of dancing, so we are incredibly thankful that they spend their time with a caring, supportive, and truly energetic team of dancers that LOVE to dance and it shows!!  The lessons learned in the studio go far beyond dance instruction.  They are taught confidence, creativity, friendship, teamwork, sportmanship, time management, responsiblility and excellence!!  PCDA has blessed our family in many ways, looking forward to many more years!!                                                                                                                    ~Mary~

What can you say other than Michelle is simply amazing?!?! Her knowledge and love for the art of dance has my daughter excited to come to the studio and eager to learn. My 4 year old has been dancing at PCDA for two years and she loves it there! The environment, staff and teachers are all great and loving with what and how they do things. We are looking forward to another great year!"
