I have two daughters who dance at Ann Parsley School of Dance. As a family were are pleased with the studio. The instructors are very knowledgeable and push the children to reach their the full potential while maintaining a non-competitive environment. The staff, including the office staff is professional while at the same time is nurturing to the children. The studio is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend this studio.
The APSD is more than a dance studio, it is a dance family. I am a grandmother enjoying a second generation of dancers growing up in this fantastic studio. My own daughter danced here many years ago under the original owner, and now her daughters dance under the new owner, who without a doubt runs this business with the same level of class and professionalism as her predecessor. The walls are filled with laughter as the children enjoy each other's company and doing crafts together on their breaks between classes. The entire staff is knowledgeable and kind and always willing to answer questions, help children with their homework, or pass along a friendly smile. In the almost twenty years I have been in and out of this establishment I have NEVER heard a studio manager or teacher be rude or disrespectful, despite the nasty, demanding, entitled parents they sometimes encounter.
My daughter has been dancing at Ann Parsley School of Dance for nine years. The school came highly recommended to me and my family and I have not been disappointed. I highly respect and admire the staff and instructors. APSD is like our second home and family, and most of the time I have a hard time getting my daughter to leave after her classes! The instructors are very approachable and easy to talk to and for someone like me, who was not a dancer as a youngster and has lots of questions, that is very important to me. When I send an e-mail, I get a response the same day or the next day, and the teachers never make me feel like they don't have time for me or my daughter. The recitals are very professional and the dances and costumes are age appropriate, classy, and artistic. I have attended other dance recitals from other studios and I am so proud of the high quality that APSD puts into their shows. There is just no comparison. APSD truly cares about each dancer and their goal is to help each one of them become the best dancer they can be and aim for their full potential. My daughter has made wonderful friendships at APSD and she would rather quit dancing altogether than ever leave APSD. I would, and have, highly recommended this dance school to family and friends.
My daughter has danced here for the past 11 years and I can't say enough about the level of instruction that she has received, which in my opinion, can't be beat. Whether they are new teachers or veterans, all of the teachers are Cecchetti trained and focus on what is in the best interest for each individual student. It is a very professional yet loving and nurturing environment and my daughter certainly has built many life long friendships while dancing at the best studio around!
Six years ago I began a quest to find a unique dance studio that was strong in ballet technique, non-competitive, and tasteful in their music/costume selections. I am thrilled to report that I have found this and much more at Ann Parsley School of Dance. The teachers at this studio care about every dancer and give each of them what they need to grow in confidence, technique, and artistry. The staff is kind and friendly, and the studio itself is always clean and comfortable. Ann Parsley School of Dance is an exceptional studio that my children are proud to call their “dance home”.
It is my impression that Ann Parsley views ballet as well as other forms of dance as an art, not as a competitive sport. It's clear to me that the emphasis has always been about learning your craft and only trying to be better than yourself. It's obvious that the instructors at this studio teach because they love dance and want to share that passion with others. Instructors have always been available, always loving on the dancers and demonstrate good judgement. M daughters have learned so much more than just dance - commitment, friendship, teamwork, and hard work.
Ann Parsley's School of Dance has a well thought out dance program to take young students from beginners to professional level offering a strong syllabus in ballet. All the ballet instructors are certified through the Cecchetti Council of America, a highly respected method.
The studio itself is very spacious and always clean and well stocked with amenities to support both the dancers and their parents. The staff is polite, efficient and friendly.
My daughter studied at APSD of dance and received excellent instruction.
I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for ballet training in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Ann Parsley School of Dance is by far the best studio I have ever been to. It is not only a beautiful and clean place but it has everything you could want while watching your kids. Coffee bar, snack area, kids play area with a coloring station, and lots of comfortable seating. There is also two restaurants next door. The studio is at a great location and has amazing service. The teachers are very giving and happy to be teaching. They get the kids fired up about dance every time they walk in the room. I would strongly suggest this studio to anyone that I know. You will be doing yourself and or your kids a favor if you check out this studio.
Great dance studio! This is my daughter's 9th year dancing and we made the switch to APSD last year and haven't looked back since. We couldn't be more pleased with the staff and level of instruction. My daughter was immediately welcomed by the teachers and other students. Her growth and development as a dancer improved measurably in only 1 year. Just an all-around outstanding studio.
I am so glad I found this studio years ago! Both of my daughters have benefitted so much from being here. They have made freindships that will last a lifetime (I have too) along with learning dance. The discipline and dedication they have acquired from the owner along with the other instructors has been helping them achieve their dreams. The teachers at Ann Parsley believe in their students and work to help them acheive their goals. The dance instruction at Ann Parsley School of Dance is by far one of the best in the state. If you are looking for a great place to help you go further in life, especially in dance, this is where you need to be.
