MelRoe's offers small class sizes for individualized instruction and attention. Classes are capped, if necessary, so they do not become too large. For recitals and performances, costumes and music is/are age appropriate. Tuition is reasonable for our area and they also offer family discounts. Their facility offers floating dance floors to prevent injuries and they have university-trained instructors. Multiple communication tools are used, including e-mail as well as internet tools such as a website and face book. I would highly recommend MelRoe's. My daughter went to "A-O" studio first, for a year and then to "The E" for two...and after three years of these "classes," she did not even have a decent cartwheel. She has improved greatly and has grown by leaps and bounds at MelRoe's!!!
