Wonderful school that nutures children in more than dance! 3/18/2010

Nice School of Dance is a wonderful place for children to grow not only in dance but in character and self confidence. The waiting area is small, but no smaller than other studios in VA Bch. They have chosen to maximize their dance space. Target, farm fresh and other stores are close by so parents can run errands. The teachers care about the kids, they use positive reinforcement not punishment to motivate the kids. The fees are very reasonable for the area; costumes may be more than at other schools, but from September-June you spend less than at any schools I considered. I wonder if momof1234 spoke to the owner about the costume fee. I have found the owner to be very understanding and accommodating. It is very clearly stated that the studio follows the school schedule and planned breaks are posted routinely. As for absences from class, you are permitted to make them up at any time. They ask that it be in a class of the same age and level, which only makes sense. The recital is always the same weekend in June and again if you ask what the date is, they can tell you at registration time. Every place that serves the public is going to have issues and conflict that comes up, I feel it is how the owner and staff resolves the issues that matters. Nice School of Dance always takes a non-combative, understanding and compassionate stance. This is a great place for kids and adults to learn the joy of dancing. Pros: caring owner and staff, great recitials, reasonable fees Cons: still a young school, they are still learning as they grow more

good dance studio overall, but..... 2/4/2010

I knew of the $60 costume fee for this years recital (up from 55 last year) but then received a phone call that there was an increase of $30, to bring it to 90. Costumes are beautiful, but that's too much for a costume that will be worn once, for about 4 minutes! And not being told the cost up front made me mad.\r And classes are cancelled if school is closed, or teacher goes out of town for holidays, but you still pay the same each month. I feel a little cheated. Overall, a great place to learn...but is it worth it? Also...the big recital is ALWAYS graduation/Father's Day weekend in June. Hard to make it there if you have siblings graduating from any high school in the area. Keep that in mind. Pros: dedicated and talented teachers Cons: expensive costumes, classes cancelled w/o makeups more

An amazing place to learn dance! 6/19/2008

I've been dancing at this studio for several years now and I have nothing but great things to say about it! I do agree that the waiting area is very small and the classes are sometimes large but I would (and have) reccomend it to anyone. I started with just ballet, but i was enjoying the classes so much that i decided to take other classes. All the teachers have an understanding of dance and how to teach their students. They are so patient and are willing to take the time to make sure that you're learning. I'm so grateful for all the technique they've taught me. I've been sucessful in all my dancing endevors (auditions and such) becuase i've been prepared so well. I've never seen any favoritism within the studio. I'm so excitied for my fall classes, for this year and for many years to come! Pros: patient teachers/knowledgable staff, fun recitals more

Cramped studio, Limited parking. 5/27/2008

I find it amusing that the reviewer from carolina has only reviewed two places and both of them on the same day. One is Nice Dance and the other is Golden Slippers, where the owner of nice dance used to teach. My daughter used to go to Nice, sadly one of her favorite teachers moved to North Carolina. She enjoyed her time there. I only saw the owners daughter in rehearsals and she did not get special treatment there. The studio is cramped, maybe they are taking on too many students, maybe they should move to a larger space. The parking area is crowded and pick up and drop off can be difficult. more

A place that loves kids! 4/23/2008

Nice is a fantastic family oriented school with good solid technical training. Yes the waiting room is too small and it can get crowded..but that is a small price to pay for a studio that LOVES your kids and really wants to see them succeed! In addition the owner makes sure that every routine, evey costume and every piece of music is clean and wholesome and age apporpriate! No fishnets on 5 yr olds at this school! Recitals are made to be enjoyed by all and conclude with a lovely reception where the main story characters ( the senior students) walk around in costume for children to have picture ops. Overall these folks are a welcoming family and the studio is a great place to dance! Pros: genuine concern for the students, wonderful technique, great recitals, good price Cons: classes can be a little large at times..but always have an assistant instructor present if they are! more

most caring 10/3/2007

I would like let you know about nice school of dance if you look at things from the outside yes the waiting area is to small. but the quality of instruction, the caring about the children, knowing your children are looked after all thats whats important . and any time you want to know about events coming up all you have to do is ask ?s someone will find the answer.this is our 2nd year with the studio and would recommend it to any one, any one unhappy with the service or the recital my answer to you is get involved, Pros: great instructors Cons: small waiting area more

Dirty, poor front desk management. 6/7/2007

Unfortunatly my experience has differed greatly from the other posts. My daughter has been attending Nice 3 for the past two years, and I have been horribly dissatisfied. While her instructors Ms Sherry and Ms. Tara are WONDERFUL, the studio is always messy, including the bathrooms. The waiting area is very small and very crowded, and if you are able to talk to the lady at the front desk, she is downright unfriendly and disorganized. The tuition is the cheapest in town, but i would gladly pay more for better service and cleanliness. The shows at the end of the year are very grand, but stressful for the children and parents invloved. I have yet to get all the information I need for the recital (which is tomorrow), but again this is due to the disorganization at the front desk. Pros: great price, convenient location, great teachers Cons: dirty, rude receptionist more

Best Quality Dance Studio 12/2/2006

My daughter has been dancing for 7 years. She has been dancing at Nice School of Dance since they first opened on Princess Anne Road 5 years ago. If you want your child to learn technique, this is the studio for you! If you want a studio that cares about each child's individual progress as a dancer, this is the studio for you. If you want to see a dance recital that is like a ""dance version"" of a musical on Broadway, this is the studio for you. If you want to get the most for your money, this is the studio for you. Their prices are the best I've seen, highly qualified dance instructor's teach my daughter, AND these teachers truly care about my daughter's individual progress/success as a dancer. Nice School of Dance is THE BEST Dance Studio in all of Hampton Roads. Pros: Technique, technique, technique! more

great family experience 8/4/2006

My daughter has been dancing at this studio for the past 4 years and it has been the best experience for our entire family. The studio also has adult classes and my daughter and I have gotten closer and now both take classes, which means we perform in the recitals together too! This is something she will always remember. This is what's important to our family. The fun, time together, and the memories. The staff is great along with music/costume selection and TASTEFUL dancing. The teachers love the children and make them each feel special and loved. more
