I refused to give Suzy Stone a star!! She is an opportunist!! She kicked my son out of the program because he had a great opportunity and she was mad that she wasn’t included. Suzy went on a rant telling me that my son wouldn’t be where he is if it wasn’t for her and that all jobs need to come through her because she manages him. She also was demanding the name and number of the person who contacted me regarding the job. We have never spoken about her managing my son so I was really confused. As my sons dad and I were trying to get an understanding of the rant she got loud and tried to over talk us and then hung up in our face. The next day she sends me a long text message and told me my son is no longer welcomed in her program because his parents don’t appreciate her, so unprofessional . She fails to realize that there wouldn’t be no Suzy without those kids!! Suzy needs to learn customer service skills and Learn how to control her temper.. I’m so glad that we are so done with her. I had to threaten to hire an attorney to get a refund. She thought she was hurting my son but he turned around and said he was a dancer before Hip Hop Kidz and he doesn’t need Suzy!! if you decide to put your child in this program feed Suzy with a long wooden spoon, don’t get too friendly with her, and expect to come out your pocket!! Don’t fall for that scholarship speech.. oh yeah, and those kids that were in her program for 5 years or more didn’t receive a dime towards college when they graduated!!
Very nice gym and the most affordable prices, they always win
I have three children dancing at the Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet. We love it! Ms. Astrid and her teachers are very qualified, committed to their students and encouraging. My daughters enjoy the friendly atmosphere, the wide array of excellent classes (ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, modern, hip-hop, acro, lyrical... ), company opportunites and participating in the high quality and energetic shows. My teenage son loves the hip hop classes. The Audet Academy is unique in providing excellent instruction and a positive envionment that creates a happy, confident and beautiful dancer.
Great teacher and owners... Ashley has great technique, something missing from a lot of other places. This is a great studio with great owners and staff that have been around the salsa community a long time.
My family has been dancing with Ms Astrid for many years. We have loved all the teachers and training. My daughters have developed self confidence and discipline along with their dancing skills. I love the environment at the studio; they have managed to balance excellent training in a welcoming atmosphere. As my daughters aged I never had to worry about the costumes or dance moves becoming inappropriate. If you are looking for a well rounded dance experience for your child this is a great place.
