WHAT OUR DANCE FAMILIES ARE SAYING:

 

"Thanks for... giving us the love and confidence needed to grow as dancers, people/friends and most importantly as a family due to the finding of our new Dance Moves "family"!



"I would like to comment on how seamlessly everything has been done from an organization standpoint. Studio communications have been frequent, clear and positive. I feel that this has set the tone for the entire studio and I can’t tell you what a difference it makes overall."



"I just wanted to take a quick second to tell you how much we have enjoyed this year. [She] has learned so much, made wonderful friends and had SO MUCH FUN."



"Being a backstage mom for recital was amazing. I learned that these girls can do so much to support each other in such positive ways. It felt like family backstage and I hope all who watched felt it on stage!"

 

"What an amazing day [recital] was. Thank you so much for all that you and the teachers do for the students. It was such a great first experience for [my daughter] and myself. I was so nervous, but you did such an amazing job with all of the information in advance and that day everything was perfect. We can't wait to start back up in the Fall!"



"Such a beautiful and clean studio. The organization from the studio director is second to none. Never in 9 years have I been a part of a recital that was so over the top perfect! From start to finish it was organized & creative and the choreography was entertaining and pushed the kids!!"



“How do I begin to thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for [my daughter]. You help fuel her passion like nobody else. Thank you for all you do to foster her growth as a confident young girl."

 

The most welcoming kids and moms ever. I wanted to just live there in the studio... A true team.


"Your studio seems to be the perfect mix of programming combined with a very positive and encouraging group."


I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you...for the entire recital yesterday. [My daughter] woke up today with more confidence than ever...talking about the older kids helping her, the volunteers, and how she got to dance with friends. The organization, the details, the thought put behind it all really impressed us... The music choices, the quality in costumes (even the finale shirts... worth every penny), the choreography, lighting, transitions were so seamless. We loved watching all the dances and were so excited for those kids to have the opportunity to shine, not just our daughters. I love the "small" (but seems to be growing quite well) close knit feel of the studio....every part of yesterday was appreciated [and] it gives us excitement for the next one!
