It's difficult to say how meaningful you, your teachers, and the studio is to my daughters and I. Gotta dance is a well rounded dance studio that offers a wide variety of dance styles from highly talented instructors. For the last six years my daughters have been dancing (doing homework, hanging out with friends, and eating dinner) at Gotta Dance. They are learning jazz, tap, hip hop and ballet from talented instructors that provide challenging age appropriate choreography. However it's more than the routines; my daughters are surrounded by positive strong role models. They have been learning perseverance, team work, character, kindness, and patience. The community that is "Gotta Dance" is strong, hard working, dedicated, passionate, and supportive. Gotta Dance is an incredible dance studio with so many strengths. I feel privileged that my daughters are a part of this community. Michelle, your studio and all your people have become a second home to us. Thank you for doing what you do everyday and allowing us to be a part of it. GD is a state of being that you can not only see but feel. So dance with your eyes and heart open and you'll feel the passion that is GD.
I've spent as long as I can remember at Gotta Dance and the people there have become my second family. Dancing at Gotta Dance has helped define who I am as a person, and it has helped me grow. Michelle, and all of the instructors, have helped me gain confidence both on and off stage. I wouldn't take back my 11 years I have spent there for anything.
There is no other place in the world where I can walk in and immediately be overwhelmed with so much love and support. Gotta Dance is a wonderful studio and everyone there has undoubtedly helped me grow into a better person.
Gotta Dance is more than just a place to take class, it is a family. There is nothing like the smiles from each instructor when you enter the lobby. They each encourage you to reach past your limit while still having fun.
