I have a long history with this dance school and it is wonderful! Karen is amazing and she and her teachers truly care about their students and their dance training. I left this school and became a dance major. I now produce professional dance shows worldwide. This school changed my life and I will forever be grateful.
If you're a man who wants to take ballet, don't waste your time with this dump. I called this place to find out about coming by as a drop-in for their adult ballet class. The woman that I spoke with at Karen Horton School of Dance told me that they did not allow people to take drop-in classes and acted weird with me over the phone. This seemed extremely odd to me so about a month later I asked an ex-girlfriend to email the school and ask them the same thing. She received an email back stating not only that they DO allow drop-in classes but that the first class would be free and they were looking forward to having her in class! I find this beyond pathetic. These "women" know nothing about me or how much of a passion that I have to dance. This type of back country mentality is why there are no men in ballet in this part of the world unless they are either A) homosexual or B) extremely emasculated. My ex-girlfriend agrees wholeheartedly with this. In Cuba where the culture is FAR more progressive (meaning advanced), there are as many men as there are women in ballet. Those men are also revered because of the fact that there is a very definite element of real masculinity in ballet. Only very low cultured and redneck people who are BARELY out of the trees in terms of human evolution see ballet the way these people do. My only regret in writing this review is that I had to give Karen Horton School of Dance 1 star because if I could, I would give this backwoods cesspool minus 1,000 stars!
My 4 year old daughter moved to this studio in August. I have saw so much improvement in her dance skills and tumbling. Miss Alex and Abby Claire are wonderful.
Love this place. My daughter has learned more at this studio in the 3 months that she has been here, than she did during the 2 years at another studio. Very happy with the progress she is making and am sure the staff has everything to do with it!
My almost 3 yr old just started in the preschool class and she loves it and Miss Alex. She talks about going all week. Great price and would highly recommend.
My daughter just turned four and loves taking dance with all the teachers! The teachers are very dedicated to what they do and it shows. You know how great of a studio it is when after a performance you get stopped by a spectator and they start asking questions about the studio and they tell you how much they enjoyed watching all the children!
My twins started at this dance studio about a month ago. I'm can honestly say I'm so sad we didn't find this place sooner! My girls LOVE Alex and the wonderful staff and they make us feel like family.
