Larkin is the best out there! 11/22/2010

I know Larkin dance studio can make any girl amazing. There is one girl named Jessica Jaunich on their senior line who used to go to stage door and came to Larkin in 3rd grade. She wasn't very good, but Michele and Molly saw so much talent in her. She worked so hard throughout the years, and now she is one of the top dancers in minnesota. I think the students have to have the drive in order to become good, and with the help of Larkin they can become amazing like she did. more

Dont even bother. 5/11/2010

I had my daughters go there for about 5 months, learned nothing and were treated like garbage. Put in the back corner, yelled at when messed up one time, never praised, this studio is terrible. \r I bet the only people the teachers actually know who they are, are the ones that are anorexic skinny, blonde, and flexible.\r Dont waste your time at this terrible studio. Go somewhere else. Do you want your daughter or son to be in the back corner and never be even seen though they have really good talent? Dont go here. Never change lines ever. If your in the back, your in the back for good. more

Inspiring teaching 1/28/2010

Larkin has some intense classes along with some beginner level classes and their focus on the art of dance and bringing it out of their students is wonderful. more

The Best Dance Family! 7/29/2008

I was a Larkin dancer myself and have returned to this Larkin family 18 years later with my two children. My teachers were the Larkin Sisters; Mary Kay(1985), Molly and Michelle(86-90) and I am really glad that my 3-year-old daughter was able to start with Mary Kay too and my son will be able to start next year as well. I have experienced this wonderful studio and it's family as a student and now I get to experience it again as a parent. They also have classes for the adults so when I can afford it I go back and become a student all over again. Pros: The teachers that make the quality of dance so rewarding. Cons: The price can feel a bit high if you?re on a budget but it is definitely worth it. more

The Best Dance School in the Twin Cities!!! 1/2/2008

I am so impressed with the staff and instruction at Larkin. My daughter was struggling at another school, so we decided to make the switch to larkin, she has only had 2 classes and has made a major improvment!!! At her old school the class was so large, my daughter never got one on one attention with the teacher, at larkin she does!!! I can't wait to see what the future holds for her, and her sister who will be joining her soon!!! There location is allright and there is pro's and con's to it, but all around I would recommend this studio to anyone!!! Mary Kay the preschool teacher is awesome, and actually communicates and tells the kids what they are learning-great job~!!!! Pros: Great Instruction, small class sizes, great value!!! Cons: Location more

Great Dance Experience 10/30/2007

My nieces have danced at Larkin Dance Studio for years. I bring them to class weekly. The quality of instruction can not be matched. The teachers, the costumes, the recital are first rate. I disagree with comments that the staff "ignores" children and that the dance instruction is a "waste of time." Watch a recital and you will be convinced that Larkin Dance Studio provides quality instruction for all children. I would truly be surprised if MStevens even had children who danced at the studio! Pros: Quality Instruction more

don't waste your time 10/22/2006

I heard this was a great studio, had my girls there for 1 month. They learned nothing, and were treated as though they didn't exist. My advice...don't waste your time, not even 1 month! Pros: Nice facility Cons: unfriendly instructors and staff more
