Some Nice Words

  • "I started taking lessons at Star Dance Studio. I was looking to get in shape but also to learn something new that I had never done before. All I can say is this place rocked my world! Teacher here are true professionals but most importantly they CARE about you and what you are looking to get out of your lessons. There is this unique home-like feel to the studio where everyone is friendly; there is no rush, no pressure – I love this place for beginner as well for professional dancers"

  • "Tanya is great dance teacher. I have worked with her in both a group and individual setting for over a year. My dancing has improved tremendously; my second competition results were much better than my first. She makes even the challenging parts of dancing fun."
