We have seen such incredible growth when it comes to her skill and confidence.

— Jacqueline Goodrich, Lucy's Mom

I can’t imagine her dancing anywhere else! I love that class placement is based on the dancer’s ability and not strictly by age.

— Melissa King, Meriko’s (“Koko”) Mom

These last few years at Encore Studio have truly been a blessing. She is learning so many valuable life lessons — teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and humility.

— Kristen Thomas, Penelope’s Mom

Since that first Little Dancers class, I have watched my tiny, shy, toddler grow into a confident, outgoing young lady.
