i went to jonis for two years then took another two years off. ive been dancing all my llife and never had a teacher like joni, or been to a dance studio like her but it works for me. shes an amazing dancer and teacher , and yes sometimes her mothers a little pushy but hey, its the bussiness and thats life, you can tell they care alot about the people,i know thatr first hand theyre always there to lend a hand to me and not just for dance related things, for anything. theyre amazing people , joanne and joni, and the way they work as a mother daughter team is amazing. i was on dance team for the year of the commercial things and yes alot of people complained about the costumes and yes there was no dress rehersal, but thats becuase its not needed, she prepares us enough to just go out there and be the amazing dancers she helped us to be. as for the studio being small, its not a big deal, its cute and makes everything more personal , and more relaxed , you dont go in there worried or feeling lost because your all togther working togther creating something, side by side. jonis isnt just a school anymore, and its not just a hobby or lifestyle choice. its a family.
