I've been to several of their recitals and performances and would not encourage anyone to send their child to this studio. The productions are amateurish; and what I found the most distracting was during the performances, some of the dancers were actually walking around the auditorium in costume!

My daughter danced at Dance Contempra for five years and it was increcible to watch her grow as a dancer each year. All the teachers are very talented and encourage all of their students equally. Dancers are given many opportunities to perform and the teachers work hard to give each student a shining moment on stage. My daughter graduated in 2008 and is now in college. She has such a love of dance and plans to continue dancing in college and beyond. I credit the teachers at Dance Contempra with giving her the skills and confidence she needed to go out into the world and persue her dreams.

I have taken classes at many other studios in the area and have had the best training at Dance Contempra. They care for each individual student. I am now preparing for Professional auditions thanks to the training I have recieved here.

My daughter took at Dance Contempra throughout all her teenage years. Through their professional, caring training she grew so much as a dancer and was accepted in ballet schools and offered a scholarships at a summer dance intensive. She has received amazing training in all disciplines and the teachers have always been so caring and easy to talk to

My daughter is new to dancing even though she is a teenager. The teachers at DanceContempra made her feel welcome, and more importantly, made her believe that she could learn to dance. So she has. Mind you, she won't be trying out for any professional dance troops any time soon, but she has done very well in a few short months. Most importantly, this company has the only "sprung" wooden floor in the city. If a floor doesn't have "give" to it, dancers run the risk of injuring themselves when they land on an "unforgiving surface", such as a wood-over-concrete floor. Kudos to DanceContempra for thinking of their students' safety.
