“Wonderful dance studio! My daughter loves it and I love that they have toys and books to entertain my boys while she dances”

Dance Parent

“Dance studio has welcoming atmosphere. However, my daughter was a bit apprehensive at times being only 3 yrs old and very shy. Her teachers continued to support her and was extremely patient and understanding. She eventually joined the class and I could instantly tell that my child is learning skills far beyond what is demonstrated on the dance floor self confidence, positive attitude, respect, caring and kindness, which is a reflection of Instructors. We are so excited to watch our daughter grow with the Joy of Dance Family!
