Mission Dance is purported as a studio that is the best family-oriented studio in the area. That couldn't be further from the truth. My daughter danced for over five years...including three years in competition with several groups. The owner, Donna Dellaria, is an absolute nightmare to work with. She is unprofessional, wishy-washy and very difficult to communicate with. We left the studio (as have countless others) because of her. The costumes are relatively expensive, and despite requests by parents, they do not give a detailed, itemized list of the actual costume expenses. To make matters worse, the parking situation is a nightmare. We often parked across the street and ran through thick traffic to be able to get to class on time. This is definitely a studio to skip.
