What People Say

"Amazing people, amazing place. Wow! After just 1 year at this studio, with very little dance experience, our daughter is dancing competitively and winning awards! "

"This studio, in the past year, has taken my sweet, self-conscious, music-loving kid, who had horrible experiences learning to dance before, and turned her in to a confident, happy, more focused dance diva. "

"Our daughter danced at another school in the area for 3 years. But, when an adult's ego got in the way of my child's happiness, we knew it was time to move her to another studio. We decided, upon the recommendation of friends, to call Michelle and discuss the situation. After meeting with Michelle and watching her work with our daughter, we could see the enthusiasm return and we immediately moved her to MDX"
