This place is falling apart . Old & filthy . The owner is very rude & lies to the people who join there. The teachers always quit , & your child will have numerous teachers in just one class , it is ridiculous ! The place is very small & kids running loose everywhere with no guidence. All of the other reviews are the owners employees & her family , They are all false reviews with the 5 stars ! She is a pathalogical lier & very snotty .

I love this studio and it breaks my heart that there is one person out there so dedicated to writing a bad review. Surely this person, never discussed his/her unhappiness with Michelle because she would do anything for anyone that goes to that studio. Last year she almost lost her twin babies who were born at 24 weeks, so my guess is this person was caught in the middle of a very stressful time for her and the studio b/c it did affect everyone...just like it would if it were your family. My daughter has been taking dance from Ms.Michelle since the studio opened and we could not be happier...we have had so many great teachers it is hard to count. The studio is more than just a place to learn dance though...it is a family. I know several people who have left to try other places and they all tell me how the regret it and many have returned. This year my daughter competed and won several overall awards, which clearly goes to the quality of instruction. You could not choose a place that was more affordable, positive, and caring for your child to learn the basic or advanced dance styles...I LOVE IT!!!
Nasty place , full of germs , cram packed , children running everywhere like a nasty daycare. It is a stuffy small building , old flooring , the owner is rude , and lies & is never there . All the teachers quit litterally all the time . They charge you $ when it's holidays , and you arent even there theyll charge you for 3 weeks when you only go for 1 week . The place is very dirty & falling apart .
I am the owner of Center Stage. First, all of our teachers have extensive experience. We have had two teachers who have had to quit teaching this year. One of our teachers accepted a job offer as head dance team director teacher got a new job that required more hours. Those teachers were replaced with two new with extensive dance backgrounds. We do not charge for weeks that you are not in class with the exception of Spring Break week. During that month, you are invited to come to any other class to make up your missed class. We pro-rate the tuition for December and June (short months). We have never gone up in prices in the middle of the year. It is true that I have not been at the studio as much as I would like to. I gave birth to my twins this past year who were born 4 months early at only 24 weeks gestation. They spent 5 months in the hospital, so my time had to be divided between the hospital, taking care of a 4 year old, and running the studio. Fortunately, I have an awesome staff and fantastic teachers who stepped in. Our place is very clean and sanitary. We make it a point to Lysol the barres and toys several times a week. After being in the hospital with my extremely premature babies, you can't find anyone who is more concerned about germs than me; I promise you that. I invite anyone to stop in and see for yourselves. Read all of the other positive reviews or stop in to see what Center Stage is all about!
Center Stage is a great studio. My daughter has been there for 3 years, and she is now on their competitive team. She has always had professional and personable teachers. She loves taking classes there. I would definitely recommend it!
