I swear, I did not tell her to say these things!!💗

Miss Etta just started talking and I started my camera because she was saying is such a wise words. (She’s wise beyond her years.). She’s been dancing at TDH for about two years. And she has put in the work!

She asked me when she started, “Am I too late to get started and learn ballet?” I said, “Absolutely not. If you have the desire, you can learn!”

Her goal was to earn her pointe shoes. She worked with private lessons, extra ballet, classes at the barre, and utilizing our Dance On Demand platform. In less than two years, she has her pointe shoes and has learned not only the art of ballet, but a lot of life lessons along the way.

Dance lessons are about appreciating and learning the art form and coincidentally learning a lot of life lessons and having fun along the way.

    “Our girls have loved their time at The Dancing House! Melissa is a patient and energetic instructor. We love how she’s created an environment to support their growth as dancers and build their self esteem. Plus the convenient class times are a major benefit. As a mom, I appreciate that she has a low-key, but disciplined, atmosphere and lets little kids be little kids. I never have to worry about inappropriate or expensive costumes, makeup or crazy pressure. The camps offered this summer have been a lifesaver! The themes are fun and my girls have had a blast getting out of the house, being active and socializing with friends in a safe environment. The costs is super reasonable too.”

    “My 4 yr old loved her dance/tumble experience at The Dancing House! You can tell Melissa has a lot of experience teaching, engaging and focusing energy for the 3-4 yr olds to keep it fun and upbeat while introducing them to the basics of tap. My daughter loved going every week and we look forward to the next session! I really wanted an intro class that would introduce us to dance without the craziness of some studios (i.e. extra expense of costumes, hair and makeup, etc), so after several recommendations, we gave it a try and so glad we did, it's perfect for us! Melissa even lent the beginner students shoes to borrow for their entire session so you don't have that expense before knowing your child will like it. All around, a great experience: quality lessons without the huge expense. Highly recommend!”

We dove into the nitty-gritty of how to claim your business profile on Google and why it's a must in today's climate. And there was a lot in between.
