My family has had the best experience with this studio. Both my kids are dancers. My daughter is going into her 5th competitive dance season and my son just started last year. The instructors are amazing and really teach to the kids strengths. I cant say enough about the owner she has a heart of gold. Its amazing that she knows every kid and every dance they are in.
