"Once again an amazing job on Nutcracker! Everything was so well done and so professional (as usual!). Such fun! What a rewarding and entertaining special performance. But as a parent, it was what it meant to Katya which really moved me. We took 4 of the dancers and 2 of Katya's school friends together to dinner between the Saturday shows. I just just sat back and listened to the excited chatter filled with so much joy at what they were doing. They were nuts with happiness! Then, when she got home that night after the last show, to look at her face and listen to her describe the whole experience was as good as it gets as a parent. It's really as happy as that girl can be!! I know she will cherish these awesome memories for the rest of her life- it is now part of who she is as a person. You have given her something very special and for that I am truly grateful."

"Thanks so much for the email. We would love to come back but we have just moved to Iowa, so sadly it's a bit far. Thanks for the wonderful experience you gave my daughter last year! You have a wonderful studio and I will recommend you to all my friends."

"My daughter is finishing year 3 with this studio. Besides the normal dance classes, there are plenty of opportunities within the studio to branch out. Their yearly productions of the Nutcracker is open to kids of all ages. There are tumbling classes offered as well. Dance is pricey, no matter where you go. I find the tuition to be very reasonable. We have had wonderful teachers in every class. I would & have recommended CDT to several friends. From what I have seen teachers guide, push only when it is needed and never push hard enough to turn the kids off. I must give a shout out to Stephanie (the owner) for keeping it fun yet increasing skill level almost weekly. I almost did not sign up my daughter for dance lessons in the beginning because of horror stories I had heard from many members of a now defunct dance studio closer to my home. Went to CDT just as a trial and here we are still."

“No where I’d rather have my daughter dance. Stephanie and the other CDT staff are professionals, but that by no means undermines their ability to be caring and nurturing with the children they teach. My daughter has danced with CDT since she was 3 years old and has LOVED every minute of it. We’ve referred several friends who have also had very positive experiences. Thanks Steph, Erin, Doris Rai, Dawn, and everyone else for the wonderful job you do with these kids!”

"I just wanted to say that each of the last 4 years Taste of the Nutcrackers we’ve attended have been better than the year before it! Our Level 3 Ballet and Jazz group of girls did a great job performing at both shows, which is a reflection on their instructor – so, way to go!!"

Charis Oothoudt

” I Love this FUN dance studio! They makes all her students feel welcome and encourages all dancers, whatever their shape and size, to do their best but most importantly, have FUN. The class rates are great, the costume purchases are fair and Steph, the owner, makes every attempt to make things right if any parent or child has a concern. My daughter has danced here for 3 years and I can’t imagine going anywhere else!”
