I concur with every word of the the review offered by ChrisBeth. After our family's careful evaluation of several regional dance studios, as well as attention to commentary offered by parents whose children danced at these various studios, we chose to enroll our daughter at PMD. Seven years later, we have absolutely no doubt that we made the best possible choice for her. We can offer nothing less than superlative praise for the professionalism and compassionate nurturing extended by each and every teacher from whom our daughter has received instruction over the years. We have recommended the studio to several friends and acquaintances and can say,unequivocally, that all who elected to send their child or children to PMD are as pleased as we are. Our children have developed a knowledge of and an appreciation for not only various forms of dance, but also for various genres of music; acquired poise and self-confidence; expanded their imaginations through creative self-expression opportunities; formed strong and healthy habits of mind and body through the self-discipline and attentiveness demanded by the study of dance; and most importantly, have had fun and formed treasured friendships with other students from many wonderful families from throughout central and north central Massachusetts. One last note: a close review of the young women and young men who ""graduated"" from the PMD studio will reveal that the vast majority have not only been extremely well-adjusted, happy, and well-disciplined dancers, but were also leaders in academics, extracurricular, and community service activities in their respective communities. Paula and her staff teach not only dance...they model and teach positive values that transcend other facets of their students' lives.
Pros: Professional and nurturing instruction
Cons: The studio's excellent reputation has expanded enrollment greatly...more studio space is needed!
