This dance studio was previously owned by Dorit Koppell and one of the teachers who taught for her bought it about five years ago. It is a great place to send your kids of any age to learn ballet and other forms of dance. The current owner, Jolene, previously danced and is a wonderful teacher. She is kind and gentle and makes sure that the kids have fun and don't get bored. She looks out for their well-being in the studio and outside.
My sister danced their for many years and the only reason she left was because my family moved back to Israel. In Israel, my sister auditioned and was accepted to Talma Yalen, the leading high school of performing arts in Israel. It was unequivocally the training and technique that she learned at Progressive that helped her gain entry into this prestigious school.
The studio is like a small commnunity where everyone knows everyone else by their first name and it is not uncommon for the parents to get involved during performances.
