This is the best studio I know and I am so lucky to be dancing here! Rebecca N., Student, Age 11

What Our Clients Are Saying

My three girls have been dancing at the studio almost from birth. My oldest is about to finish her 16th year here. It has been her home away from home. I am so grateful for the safe and loving environment that she has experienced here. She has made her closest friends here and has learned so much from her teachers that she looks up to. What I love most about this studio is that it is a warm family friendly studio that cares about each of their students and they go above and beyond for each one. My girls feel so close to their teachers and I couldn’t be happier that they look forward to coming every day. Susan S., Mother

What Our Clients Are Saying

I have been dancing at progressive for about four years! I love this studio so much. The teachers are all so kind and sweet. I have made so many amazing friends throughout my years as a dancer at Progressive. All of the teachers try to make us all come together as one and make new friends.  I have made so many amazing friends I never thought I would have. I would definitely recommend this dance studio. You make many amazing friends and you will have the time of your life. Alexandra G., Student, Age 12

What Our Clients Are Saying

I am the father of 3 girls, each of whom are enrolled in multiple classes for numerous years at progressive dance studio. My oldest is a high school senior, who has been a student at PDS since she was 3 years old. Both of my other daughters started dancing at PDS at 3 years old. During our 15 years at PDS, we have enjoyed the classes, the instructors, the family atmosphere, and the overall welcoming and nurturing environment that the school provides. My daughters have learned so much about the various genres of dance, choreography and teamwork from the owner and dance instructors. Any parent who wants their son or daughter to learn from professional and caring instructors while being part of a close knit team of kids should seriously enroll at progressive dance studio. Stephen S., Father

What Our Clients Are Saying

For the past 14 years, my life has revolved around dance. Progressive Dance Studio has always been and will continue to be the perfect forum for me to continue to develop my skills, cultivate my passion, and train in what I love. This place is impossible not to feel comfortable in. It has been my home for the past 10 years and its unbearable for me to think that I only have one year left. My dance friends have become my sisters, and along with our teachers and company directors we have become a close knit family. I genuinely cannot imagine my life without them. Hayley G., Student, Age 16

“You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.”—Merce Cunningham
