My daughter is going into her seventh year at NW Dance and Acro and each year her passion for dance continues to grow. I am so grateful to have found a local studio with such excellent instructors intent on teaching the importance of good technique but not at the expense of their students’ self-esteem. I like that the teachers are open to experimenting with different, innovative equipment and exercises to help the dancers train. Another big plus for me is that the studio has done a great job cultivating a caring and encouraging environment, which you can see in the students’ daily enthusiasm, and bullying and rude behavior are not tolerated in students, parents, or teachers. I love the friendships that the dancers make and that they will cheer for each other when they master something new. I would highly recommend this studio to anyone with a child interested in dance. There are a variety of classes and experience levels so it’s a great fit for the casual dancer as well as the more advanced, offering excellent instruction in a fun and friendly atmosphere. My only complaint is that sometimes it’s hard to get my daughter out of the studio! But that really speaks to the character of this studio, the teachers’ passion and joy in what they’re doing really resonates with the students and serves to inspire. We’re very happy to be at NWDA.
