It was fantastic to have my daughter be invited to dance in the mini company! She was diligent and committed to dancing by practicing her little heart out every night. She was learning and gaining important techniques, gaining self-awareness and believing in herself as a dancer. Being a part of the mini company made G. feel special and she even formed new friends. And the benefits went far beyond dance. She has more self-confidence as a person and her skills have poured over into her gymnastics practice. Ms. Francesca and Ms. Donna have passion, love, and invest personal time towards every dancer.

In addition to the valuable dance instruction my children are receiving, I have begun taking adult fitness and dance classes there as well. The YDB classes are always so great. I also take adult ballet classes, and Miss Francesca goes out of her way to make sure that I feel comfortable while learning proper technique.
