Both my children have attended P2 over the past 8 years. My daughter was a member of the competitive team for 5 of those years. She has been well trained to compete, perform and participate in national programs with professional dancers. Her goal is to dance for a reputable company. My son has also attended p2 as a recreational and competitve dancer. He has no desire for a career in dance but enjoyed the time spent with friends and learning a few tumbling and dance moves. The ballet teachers Roman and Tatiana are well qualified to teach ballet to your child. The teachers and styles of dances offered have changed several times as well as the teachers that taught them. Ms.Tamara is talented at making props and costumes. She has brought in a number of outstanding choreographers over the years to include her daughter, Tori. We recently left the studio when staffing changes took place. I can not speak to the current level of qualifications of the teachers as we are not getting instruction there currently. There are a lot of really nice parents and kids that attend there. You will have to check it out for yourself to see if it is the right fit for your needs.

My daughter has been dancing with Pilchuck (P2) dance academy for 6 years and loves it. The studio is her home away from home and her teammates are family. The teachers are the best and very professional. I truly recommend this studio to kids of all ages. Just come in and give it a try. You won't regret it.

Pilchuck Dance Academy or P2 Dance (they go by both) is to be avoided! The owner Director uses controling and manipulative ways. Staff turnover is huge. Dancers are not taught proper technique. Big emphasis is put into competition dance (and in that arena P2 is disrespected, for good reasons). Do not get sucked in by the appearance of the building. AVOID AVOID
