Are you freakin' kidding me? Evidentally the parent who thinks Ms. Barb is grumpy is a NEW addition to our familiy at David de Marie. My children have been dancing at this school since they were 3 yrs old and they ABSOLUTELY LOVE MS BARB!!!!!! Where else in this city can you feel comfortable to drop your LITTLE GIRL off and know she will be safe and someone is watching at all times??? Ms Barb is a wonderful lady and takes great care of all the young ladies who dance there. If you have danced there for years (like us) you will know, Ms Barb is like a second mother to these girls. (Talk to alumni), All of the graduating girls have danced there all their lives and usually stay there all day, also once they become of age they are not only dancers but assistants as well.\r
How nice would you be ALL THE TIME? She takes care of thousands of OTHER PEOPLES CHILDREN on the daily basis. When things overwhelm us at times we all become frustrated and if she ignored you believe me it was not on purpose, what about yourself? are you the nicest person all the time? I THINK NOT! Ms. Barb is a peach and we are LUCKY to have her there keeping that mommy eye on our kids.\r
How nice would YOU be ALL THE TIME if you had to juggle Mr. Lenny, the teachers, the dancers, THE PARENTS, the schedules, the competitions, the shows, the recitals, and ""oh my god"" the beautiful costumes(that she takes her own time to ADD bells, bows, sequences, whistles etc)??\r
IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT HERE PLEASE GO! We are an award winning David de Marie family and don't need your negativity this year or any year. Kick rocks!!!!!!
Pros: Wonderful environment for children from ages 3 to 18
