"Satisfying to deliver a higher level of service than typically found in our industry."

“I love the satisfaction I feel when we help families find their dance home and they get to watch the development of their dancers. It’s satisfying to be able to deliver a high level of customer service, especially in an industry where customer service is not always prioritized. I love being able to associate with teachers and staff who care about what we are doing and find meaning in helping students grow.”

Amy De Vera | Office & Enrollment Coordinator, Former Instructor
