“You have a great staff…and they are all very professional. I’m happy my daughter has the chance to go to Dance Stop and be taught by the best. Her teacher’s help, coaching and friendship (as well as) the way she goes out of her way for my daughter is beyond thanks.”
-- J.M.

“My daughter’s teacher has been absolutely wonderful and caring to her students this year. She always started and ended classes on time. She also showed so much energy in the class and a dedication to help each of her students learn. It was a large class, and she was also able to manage them very well and keep everyone focused on task. She represents your dance school in a very positive manner.”
