See what our families are saying
“We are not a face in the crowd, but a part of a dance family“
“We have a boy and a girl that both very much look forward to going to class. The staff, instructors and assistants are very invested in them having fun, learning and feeling good about themselves. I have received quick responses and advice when needed. We are not a face in the crowd, but a part of a dance family.”
-Jana, mom of two dancers
The staff goes out of their way to help each dancer be their best.
“Since our daughter started taking dance at The Pointe School of Dance, she’s become stronger and more confident. We have seen her grow a greater willingness to try new things. She has been given numerous opportunities to perform in new settings. This has certainly taught her to be flexible and adapt to new situations. In addition, the instructors are top notch. They are all truly invested in making dance a positive experience for every student. The staff goes out of their way to help each dancer be their best. We love The Pointe!”
