Testimonials

Comments from 2014 summer participants
“What did you like best over your time here?”

“Everything. The dancers, students, staff, experience, classes, dancing, schedule, privates.”
“I really loved that I could see my body change after 3 weeks.  I could notice some improvements which means we are doing the proper work .”
“Personal attention and corrections were really helpful.”
“I liked how the program wasn’t trying to teach us how to get higher legs or better turnout. It felt like they were trying to improve our strength and quality of our dancing. Focusing on having proper placement and strength has improved me so much.”
