Reading the reviews I was at a loss. I went to all local dance studios around me and found Vick Michelle dance studio. I decided to ask about the history and found out that some of her wonderful teachers retired/ moved after being with the studio for years. She had a few years of trying to find reliable and knowledgeable teachers, so I'm guess that was the time period of all the unhappy clients. My daughter has been there for a year now and I couldn't be more happy! I have even had some friends sign there children up and they have had an amazing experience. All the instructors and staff are wonderful and are willing to work with you. Like any business you are obligated to pay for the services you use. If you are signed up for the recital, VM allows you to make monthly payments instead of having to pay up front ( so as a parent with bills I appreciate not having to pay a lump sum). the facility has cameras and windows in each dance room and a huge gym for young cheer/tumblers. The bathrooms and waiting rooms are clean. There is a snack bar and a boutique as well. I noticed some of the reviews were a few years old and wanted to share my knowledge. Couldn't be happier with VM!
