Karen Prunzik's Broadway Dance Studio is by far the best studio in the Pittsburgh area. She has exceptional faculty who have worked with the best known choreographers and teachers in the world including Paul Draper and Bob Fosse. It is obvious from the moment that you walk in the door that Karen is dedicated to passing on her knowledge of dance to her students. I know this personally myself having been a student of Karen's for the past 5 years. I am proud to say that in the 8 months since Karen has opened her own dance studio I have noticed myself becoming a better dancer and performer with each class I have taken. She not only prepares her students with classes on dancing, but with classes that will teach a student how to perform such as Triple Threat, private singing lessons and acting. Karen has fully prepared me for anything that I would want to do in my life regarding dance to the fullest extent. I highly recommend BDS to anyone who wants to learn how to dance, not learn choreography for a show. If you have dreams of dancing on Broadway or even learning how to dance I highly recommend Broadway Dance Studio.
My 2 daughters have been dancing for 10 years and have studied in just about every school in the tri state area including PMT, CLO, Rosalene Kenneth, Paula Scriva, and Miller School of Dance, and in just 3 months my girls have learned more than they have at Broadway Dance Studio than they have in all the years spent at these other schools, not to mention the amount of money wasted on lack of training. The teachers at Karen Prunzik's Broadway Dance Studio are professional Broadway performers who truly care about each and every child and what their goals are. I couldn't be happier. Definitately money well worth spent. Where else in Pittsburgh can you drop your child off and leave them in the hands of Broadway Professionals? Nowhere!!!! APPLAUSE PLEASE!
I, as an adult, have received tap instruction from Karen for the past 4 years. I always look forward to my weekly lesson with her because she is such an excellent teacher. She is very professional in her approach, and she makes class so enjoyable for me. She is extremely talented in her own right, also. Some teachers are wonderful dancers but not good teachers...Karen is both. I have also seen her interact with young children and young adults, and found her to be a patient and warm person, full of personality. The kids just love her!! I would recommend her studio to anyone.
