To receive the quality instruction Adam and Lisa Clark and Dance Alliance provide, we are committed to driving to Saline from Livonia several times a week. My daughter has been dancing with the Clarks for many years and under their direction, she has not only become a stronger dancer but has gained grace, discipline and confidence. Itís well worth the drive!
