Happy Parents and Dancers

  • My girls are new to dance. Starting at a later age you never know how things will roll out. Not only have my girls advanced well and continue to gain new skills......they love it! Annie and her other instructors have been great! Turning my cheerleaders into dancers. Although we have only been here a short amount of time I already see them as dancers. I recommend Dream Dance Co to anyone who has any desire to be a dancer and even if you have danced for years.

  • We have been with Dream Dance Co. since they opened. This studio was the perfect way to introduce my then 4 year-old and 2 year-old twins to dance. As my kids have grown, so has the studio and what it has to offer. I love it here, my girls love it here, and Annie and Company really go above and beyond to make the kids have fun, learn to dance and benefit from music and movement. There truly is something here for everyone and I highly recommend Dream Dance Co.!

  • I took my two year old to a mommy and me class as a trial run. She had so much fun. She's been talking about dance class all day today. We went to the dollar store and she was so excited to find a hula hoop there. Now she's home with her stuffed animals, showing them how to jump in and out of the hoop and go in circles on her tippy toes. We will absolutely be back, and I'm so happy we found this studio! The owner is sooo sweet and taught the little ones yesterday. Thank you thank you for the fun time my daughter had yesterday.
