In The News & Reviews

"We have been at Dance Prodigy Studios for 3 years now. My girls love the studio and have learned so much from all the teachers. Both my girls danced for over 10 years at another studio that closed down when we came to Dance Prodigy Studio so they were by no means new to dance. However, what they have learned in the short time that they have been at DPS is amazing. All the teachers have not only influenced my girls in dance but also have been good role models for my teenage girls. I trust them completely with the teachers. I also would like to say that Mrs. Rachel does not only care about my girls, but she cares about the whole family. She has done so many wonderful things for our family and has touched our lives and our hearts in a profound way. I would highly recommend DPS to anyone who is looking for not only a great dance studio but also a family friendly place." -Kathy N., Yelp.com Review

"We are so proud to call Dance Prodigy our studio. Mrs. Rachel and her staff love my girls like their own. The are not only talented dancers themselves, they are dedicated to the growth and development of their students. Having a dance background myself, I greatly appreciate the balance of fun and discipline they use in class. It teaches skills to be used throughout life, even after dance. They have such a positive influence on their dancers and I couldn't imagine being anywhere else!!"-Brittney P., Yelp.com Review
