The management is more interested in keeping the mommies going and money flowing than honestly trying hope children learn dance. Classes come and go, as the staff changes - when you have a pre-schooler involved they become attached to their teacher and rather than suggest an alternative you are asked Who would like to switch to?


The studio that started it all, this is a great place for kids of all ages to come and lear all types of dance: ballet, tap, hip-hop, etc. We just love the people as well as the professionalism.

The story of the School of Dance & Music really began long before owners Liliana and Dan first opened their doors. As a young girl, Liliana was painfully shy. We're talking so bad that she spent the first two dance classes she ever took crying on her mother's lap instead of in the class having fun. She had to learn English when she started school (her parents are Italian immigrants), but even then she barely spoke at all through the early years of grade school, and was eventually even voted 'most likely to be a nun' in her elementary school yearbook.
