Our Dance Families Thoughts

  • When my daughter first started dancing here, it was to get her out of the house and get some of the energy out of her system. Now as she is going into her 5th year, I have found this studio and its instructors to be family. She has learned so much and is excited to learn more about dance. The instructors are patient with the kids and have fun with them. She completed her first solo and I am in awe of the confidence this girl has on the stage and can’t wait for the next few years as she learns more!. And this is all due to the wonderful instructors and the guidance they provide!
