My daughter has danced at Heather Stolle's School of Dance. When she was first starting, I had no idea what to expect. But, my experience with the teachers and other staff was very pleasant, and most importantly, my little dancer loved being there. The classes were age appropriate, as was the music, and I knew I didn't have to worry about my daughter being exposed to the ""nasty"" dancing that seems to be so popular these days. When the costume books came out, I was happy to see that there were no exposed mid-riffs, or really short skirts. The costumes were all beautiful, and again, age appropriate. There were some that were priced a more than others. I inquired about costume pricing, and the breakdown explained to me was certainly understandable. So, in response to a previous comment on pricing, I guess quality costumes are worth it. My friend went to another studio and their costumes were all the same price, no matter if they were sequined and gorgeous, or put together by the parents. Sometimes all it takes to understand is to ask questions. All in all, my experience at HSSD could not have been better!
Pros: friendly staff, family atmosphere, large viewing windows, large lobby area
Cons: not enough days in the week!
