My daughter Michaela who will be three in two weeks has been dancing with the little ladies of the Creative Movement class for two months now and she loves it! Elaine is great with the little ones and always makes class fun yet educational. Elaine is great at getting them focused and enjoying themselves. I can't wait to see their performance in June and I know Michaela can't either, she asks me daily when will she have her recital :)

After trying a few dance studios in the area, we came across Turning Pointe. My daughter, Melia has been dancing there for 4 years, starting in ballet and now in hip hop. We had her birthday party at the studio and have recommended TPDA to many friends who now go. It's so convenient and we love all the teachers. She has made some great friends there too. We all love to dance so we are glad she is learning from the best.
