Fantastic place to be – I have 2 very young dancers that were interested in dance so I stopped by the studio and was overwhelmed by the kindness and warmth that was felt when we walked in. It is a large studio with lots of dancers and families but each dancer and family are treated like they are the only ones there. I was a dancer when I was younger so I know a good studio. I would recommend this studio to anyone in the area. They are great with babies all the way to Sr. Teen dancers and Adults! If you are looking for a good studio, this is the place to be!
Excellent Dance Studio – Both of my girls have danced at Pacific Dance for several years. They have been nurtured and have progressed so much! Their variety of instructors have all helped them in so many ways. I would recommend this studio to anyone from the recreational dancer to the more serious dancer. There is something for everyone there! Also, the staff and management are so helpful!
Again, I would recommend this studio to anyone interested in dance!
Great Place for All Levels – My daughter started at Pacific Dance at 3.5 years. The teachers are warm and nuturing and have done nothing but give her confidence. She may not be a "Prima Ballerina" but she has definitely found a spot for herself there and been able to grow. She is now part of their performing groups. I would recommend the studio to dancers of all ages and levels ... even moms!
Worst experience EVER! – My 3 year daughter expressed an interest in dance so I decided to try out a class at Pacific Dance with Ms. Janna. It turned out to be an awful and truly devastating experience. I had heard the studio was on the strict side, so I talked to my daughter at great lengths about how important it was to listen to the teacher. We got to class and my daughter was over the top excited. She started class and was behaving very well. Mid-way through the class, she told Ms. Janna she needed to go potty. Ms. Janna removed her from the class and I commented that it was funny she said that because she was not fully potty trained yet. At that point I was informed that the children need to be potty trained in order to do the class and they kicked my daughter out. They would not even let her finish out the 30 minutes remaining in the class. I was never informed of their policy on potty training before having my daughter try the class, and yet she was punished and kicked out of the class. My daughter cried for hours after the class telling me she listened to the teacher. She now thinks she was punished for not being potty trained. I understand and support the use of discipline in sports. I feel it is a critical element of childhood development. However, to kick out a three year old for not being potty trained, when it was no fault of her own, is absolutely appalling. I am disgusted by this studio and strongly discourage parents from subjecting their children to this kind of environment.
