As a former dancer, I was very choosey about finding the right dance school for my child, whether or not she chose to be serious about dance. As it turned out, Freedom of Movement has been perfect for kids who just want to dance for fun and for serious dancers. Ms. Marianne teaches perfect ballet technique, Ms. Dawn is wonderful with modern, lyrical and other styles, as is Ms. Caitlin. And all the teachers instill a great joy of dance blended with discipline that has actually transferred to other aspects of my child's life (schoolwork, organization, manners). She loves Freedom of Movement and I am so pleased at the experience she is getting there.
