All three of my students dance at Robert Lee. Two of them are still quite young but the other is in her late teens and has won numerous state and national titles for both Dance and Modeling. I LOVE the teachers and so does my children. The two younger ones have Miss Andy, Miss Amy, and Miss Amanda, and they absolutely adore them. My older one takes from Miss Amanda, Miss Cheryll, and Miss Rita. Her favorite is Miss Amanda. She DOES bring her boyfriend to the studio, but he is NEVER in her classes. I have never seen him sitting in on a class when she was teaching. Miss Amanda is very helpful and fun. Miss Rita is an amazing Hip Hop and Tap teacher. She is kind of fast paced but everyone seems to learn a lot from her. Miss Cheryll is probably the only teacher that my children aren't too fond of. She talks WAY too much in her classes. She has great choreography and technique, but only her favorites get the joy of learning. She sits down the whole time and eats while she should be up dancing with them. My two younger daughters don't want to take from her. All in all, this is a great studio. I would definitley recommend it.

Robert Lee is really expensive for a school that doesn't have an awesome criteria to offer. Even though my daughter and I loved the school because of the people that go there I do not think anyone should invest in this school if you want to achieve a higher education for dance unless its in the hiphop or ballet classes. The ballet is decent but the hiphop by Ms. Rita is amazing. They have unqualified teachers for example Ms. Amanda. She brings her boyfriend to her classes consistently and allows him to distract her from her teaching. Ms. Andy has been working there for quite a while but her skill seem to say otherwise. The owner of the place is very rude and I've seen her grab and verbally attack students there. Other than the hip hop program and maybe the ballet program I would defintely not recommend this studio to anyone!!!

I LOVE Robert Lee!!!!!! I have been dancing here for 8 years, and I never want to leave. I'm 12 and I will stay until graduation. They have thoughtful, caring, helpful teachers like Ms, Amy and Mrs. Cheryll. The environment is very kid-friendly. You can buy snacks,and Jet's is right next door! I take a variety of classes, like Cecchetti, Russian Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Acrobats, Jr. Company, and my solo. There is so many other classes available, like Hip-Hop, Tahitian, Lyrical, Hawaiin, or Irish. It it a small studio that is kept clean and is open everyday except Sunday, Also I believe they're closed on Fridays. You have a June recital for the school year classes, or you can take summer classes for 5 weeks to prepare yourself for the next year. The classes range from little 2-year-olds to adults. The teachers can be 21, like Ms. Amanda, or really old but experienced, like Mrs. Andy. I recommend Mrs. Cheryll because she really works you to your potential. She has lots of good streches and technique ideas. Ms. Amanda brings her boyfriend Chris to our classes sometimes, so it feels a little awkward. But beside the small mistakes (that every human being makes in their life!) I think Robert Lee is great for anyone. But it is better to start young, otherwise you might have a hard time catching up. Most kids start before they're 8 to become really mature in dancing by their older teenage years. I started when I was 4. This is my first review, but I know a LOT about Robert Lee, trust me!!!! I take 7 classes, so I practically live there. I love Robert Lee School of Dance and I hope that you will too! Thank you for reading my review!!!!!!!
