"If you are looking for a ballet studio that emphasizes the love of dance along with strength, fitness, technique etc. this is the place! My daughter danced with the 8-12 year old range and loved it - the teachers are incredible and gently pushed our dancer daughter to be her best! Try their summer camps too - amazing!"
