BAS Classes for Ages 10 & Up
My daughter had a rough transition from a competitive dancer to a non-competitive dancer and finding your studio was a huge WIN FOR US. She is excited about EVERY class, even ballet, and that has not been the case for the 2 years before we found you. The teachers are tough, but kind, and praise all of her progress.
The fact that you do voice lessons and musical production was just icing on the cake and she loves those too!
