Happy Parents & Dancers

I have been a student of dance teacher and owner, Annie Mix since 2006. I have seen her grow into an amazing dance teacher and business owner. She cares most about her students and their experience in dance. She has gotten multiple certifications and she continues to get certifications so that she can share what she learns with her students. She often does workshops as well so that students can learn from dance professionals beyond her own dance style. She is always willing to work with students and their parents to make sure that dancers get the most out of their dance experience. It is competitively priced this small studio will make sure that students will get the attention so that they can succeed in their dance life.

Love this studio! My daughter has been dancing here for better than 3 years. The teachers are patient and knowledgeable. The director Annie is so nice and is a great leader. My daughter has made some great friends here too! We're getting ready for daughter #2 to take some classes this summer. We are so lucky to have found this studio and I highly recommend.
