My daughter went there for 11 years - as the kids got older the atmosphere got worse. She plays favorites with her own kids and participates in teenage drama. The last few dance recitals showcased her children more than anyone else's. When you a running a business you need to be impartial. The teacher and her husband gossip about students with other students. Very unprofessional and not good role models. I was very disappointed. In the time when we were there two large groups of older kids that left one right after the other - all related to a drama filled atmosphere. Not an environment I want my daughter in there is enough drama with teenage girls without grown adults adding to it.
Towards the end the recitals and dance competitions were poorly run and the girls were not ready to perform their routines. The last few theater performances were awful with kids not knowing there lines and poorly organized. You basically paid for your children to "hang out" at the studio on theater practice night.
It's unfortunate to see a business go downhill so badly - awful business management.
