"I sign up every year because I love dancing here and enjoy being with my friends"
-- Hip Hop Dancer, Age 11
"I danced and performed a lot growing up and studied ballet at Skidmore College. I think my daughter couldn't be in better hands. Julie and Setsuko are the dynamic duo! Rigorous and classical technique and instruction offered in a fun and collegial atmosphere. We laugh a lot and applaud each other's successes."
-- Holly and Madeline (intermediate /advanced ballet)
"Many of my fondest childhood memories were of being a student at The Dance Studio. When I wanted to introduce my daughter to dance instruction, I came “home” to the studio where I learned both technique and confidence. I’m thrilled to watch my daughter blossom under the creative and imaginative direction of Jennifer. It is a very special treat for me to observe my child’s appreciation for dance and movement being fostered my one of my former teachers. Though the location has changed, the inspirational, nurturing, and child-centered environment is the same."
-- Aliciane Elkins
