Parent Reviews:

"My two daughters have been dancing at SDA since 2012 and 2013, from when they were 4 and 2 years old. They take a variety of classes (ballet, tap, singing, jazz, acro etc.) and love performing everything they learn not only at home but also on stage in the breathtaking professional-looking annual shows. The teachers are devoted to have the pupils reach their full potential. The studio can also be hired to members for special occasions which we did for my oldest son who had the best bouncy castle birthday party there last year. To sum up, we highly recommend the dance school."
