I grew up dancing here because my mother couldn't bring us any place else. As soon as I was able, I left and went elsewhere. I can honestly tell you that there are still to this day favoritism. I was one of the elite dancers but never liked the clicks. I danced and I left. Today, I hear the same stories about the studio as happened in the past. The studio is very competitive in and out of the classroom. You never know where you stand with them. If you leave the studio, you are considered the enemy. I'm not sure if they still do it but they used to tell anyone who was unhappy ""like it or leave"". I heard that on more than one occasion with my own ears. I have heard not much has changed.
Cons: Highly competitve atmosphere
