For a dance studio that's is suppose to be based on Christian values these costumes sure show a lot of skin. Instead of so many lectures by the owner about getting along with one another and not being absent when she and her daughters have missed more than anyone, she needs to lecture about modesty. We as parents would love to be able to discuss our concerns with the owner but can't for fear of retaliation against our children. It seems as if you aren't in the chosen few that are the favorites then you better be careful. It is definitely not based on talent. That is more and more evident. Don't preach to all and then only allow your favorites to get away with everything. Thought we were going to have an awesome new business for our little town but very disappointed. Hope that this is read by the leaders there. Don't really like using this form of communication to get our point across to them but didn't have an address to send an anonymous letter to. And don't want our children discriminated against.

Heard a lot about that place. Decided not to allow my child part of that drama. But please name who the few chosen is???? I would love to know the names to see if these are some of the women that has knocked my children out of some of their fun.
Thank you for giving us the scoop. Money will cause the devil to come through some people.

Here we go again !!! Why do people think it's better to talk smack about someone on Topix, rather than deal with the issues face to face. Hmmmm, could this be a coward ??? I find it very SAD, that mothers of certain dance students get on here and bad mouth the studio and the owners and instructors. If you are so unhappy with the decisions they are making then why do you pay your hard earned money to these people to teach your child dance ?? As for the costumes , being a christian has NOTHING to do with the costumes. If you were truly involved in the dance world, then you would know that all the other dance studios have similiar costumes, and that is just what they are is COSTUMES !!! And for someone to ask "Who the chosen few are", that is so sick that you would want to hace innocent childrens names spread all over the internet, and especially on this tacky website.No one has taken the fun from your child except for you !!! My advice to you is grow up and be a woman, and stop posting negative comments on this site !! I know if I felt this way , I certainly would not be writting a a website, I would be taking up my issues with the owner and staff of this studio.

Apparently you didn't read our concerns with talking to the owners. And just because this is what other dance studios wear does not make it right. If all the other children do something wrong do you tell your child it's ok that's what everyone does??!? As Christians we are suppose to set an example not follow the crowd. The owner is the one preaching that she is basing it on Christian beliefs. And believe this when this recital is over we won't be going back. Too many inconsistencies there. Provide me with an address that I can mail my issues to the owner and I will. But we cannot talk to her because she tells the other moms who in turn talks in front of their children and then my children are harassed about causing problems or are told that they are not even good enough to be dancing and told by these cruel children that they shouldn't even be dancing there. The teachers at the middle school are hearing the drama daily and talking about it themselves. The dance contract states that they are not to be talking about each other. We just want to get thru the recital then we are done. Maybe you need to step back, take a good objective look and see that there are problems. My children love to dance but as their parent I can't let them be subjected to that drama. All the parents want to do is stand out there and talk about whoever isn't there and critisize their children. Heaven forbid that one of you be genuinely happy for another child that is talented. It's all about who you can tear down and make them look bad. Its "Who is screwing up this week we can talk about??!? " And that is acting like a Christian? Just saying.......

I don't have an address for them, but I would suggest if you are so unhappy to write a letter to the owner , and during non business hours puch it under the door, so the next time they come in the studio they can read it and address the issues.Sounds like the issue should have been addressed from the get go, and then it would be "drama " now.

I've been a dance mom for about 9yrs, costumes are same everywhere if u look at them as too Sexy etc then that's your issue same with cheerleading skirts, I've heard that also, but speak directly your concerns to her, dont b scared or worry with what might happen, you have a voice for a reason, be heard, makes more sense to speak if you feel that strong about your issues!! Just saying!!

I was told about this thread being on here and told myself I would not get involved, but I just wanted to address one thing and that was to the comment about the owner and her daughters missing classes. Do you even know the reason they missed those classes? They were told by her husbands Doctor to spend some family time together before he had his THIRD open heart surgery. NOT that this is anyone's buisness as to why they took that vacation & time off but I felt it should be addressed as to why they did miss. I mean do you work? Do you not take time out for a vacation? And if you don't that doesn't mean that other people shouldn't. My daughter has danced here since they opened and we have always felt welcomed and loved, we are involved in both recreational classes & competition classes and have always been treated the same. But everyone has their different opinions & I agree with the above poster who said write them a letter and put it under the door at the Studio voicing your concerns. As I said, We Love this studio, but everyone has their own opinions.

Who is causing all the drama? Is it the parents, teaches, or the kids?

I know several of the kids there and most are sweet and driven.
I also know some of their mothers and they are nothing but drama queens. They live for the constant recognition and someone to stroke their ego. Trying to keep up with the Jones. It's sad really that their daughters will most likely grow up to be just like them because the moms are living vicariously through their child.

Give us the names of the drama bit**es. I know Helena Smith is one of them! She is so vain and thinks the world should revolve around her. Why does she think she and her family are all that. She is so mistaken. She is also very nosy so watch out what you tell her.

I have learned over the years it does not matter if it's dance, softball, basketball, or beauty pageants the same drama queens (Mothers) try to rule everything. I honestly think its time that parents be made to stay home for the benefit of their children, I know for fact the children would enjoy participating more.

I know that there are some young girls dancing to the song Temperature by Sean Paul. The lyrics in that song do not match up with the Christian values that this place supposedly has.

What kind of christian are you ? A HIPPOCRIT ???? Who are you to judge these people and thier religious values? What does a silly little song have to do with being a christian ? Sounds like you know alot about the studio ,to know the name of a song the girls are dancing to, you must be one of the drama mamas that was ask to leave the studio due to causing DRAMA ! Get a life, if all you have to so is sit around and judge people or question thier christianit and values, it seems to me that you need to find the nearest church and find it quickly, because apparently yu know nothing about being a christian.
I'll be praying for you sweetie !

Where is a Christian in tis statement full of anger & sarcasm? The song has lyrics about turning the girl on & I can be the papa & you can be the mom... Your statement is the statement full of judgement...you have no right saying that YOU would pray for THEM when your full of anger & judgement.

Apparently no one has been to church or dusted off their bible lately bc then all anyone on this thread with the exception of the few who have written lines full of actual useful advice would realize that everything else they are saying is judgemental and hypocritical. The first mother was looking for advice not being put down and watching everyone else point fingers or judge.

When u point one finger 4 more r pointing back at u.

Just remember there is only one who has the right to judge and it isnt any of u. thats something a christian would know and would therefore refrain from judging. evrrything u do gets noticed in His eye so love thy neighbor and be a friend not a judge, name caller or hypocrite.

God bless.
