Find another dance studio
My daughter learned a valuable life lesson about individuals and character, and not in a positive way. At this school unless your child is one of those naturally inclined individuals, you will spend a great deal of money and many hours of your time for your child to be in the back, waiting in the wings, or standing in a pose. The background of the staff is nothing outstanding or unusual; most every north metro Atlanta studio has former or current professional dancers/actors on staff. My daughter enrolled at another Gwinnett County dance studio and learned that her technique, flexibility and skills were nowhere near what she was capable of. With teachers who took the time to help her with the things she specifically was lacking, she excelled at the other studio. There's a trend among many who attend this dance studio. Enroll, stick around a 2 or 3 years, then go elsewhere. It's been like this since they've been in business. A few will be stay, but it's very few compared with other studios around metro Atlanta. I attribute those who stick around to not knowing that things can be different. Kids can learn dance without all the baggage thrown on them by this studio.
