Since I was three years old, I have been coming to this studio every week for around 11 years. Mrs. Val has been a great mentor and helped me to go to joffreys’ summer camp. It was an incredible experience and I learned so many things. Our competition team was also allowed to go to Los Angeles for Dance Excellence, which was an amazing learning experience. She encouraged us all to be our best selves and treat each other as family. I always feel so at home going there because I can be with my second extended family. Teachers are kind, encouraging, and willing to teach us dance. There is a place that makes me feel happy and at ease. I hope to return for many more years.
