"I loved the Director's style from the moment I met her and observed that first class. She is honest, direct, and very talented. She works so well with all ages of dancers she teaches. It was obvious from the start that this is a studio with artistic/creative vision. Some studios don't seem to see dance as an art form, but the staff here certainly do.” - YDE PARENT
