My feeling about this company is that they nickel and dime you to the extreme. You end up paying way too much for the mediocre-poor quality you get, and the only decent teacher there is leaving.

The classes were $40/mo which doesn't seem so bad to me, but after you add in the cost of the recital outfit, the professional photographs, the finale shirt, the tickets to the recitals (yes they do two, so they expect you to pay $10/person both times...with NO FREE TICKET FOR EITHER PARENT ...not even one),$30 for a video of the recital, the $2 charge for a pathetic program that should be free... it just gets ridiculous.

They blocked off the moms who were helping behind the scenes from seeing the performance from an easy entrance, and made us walk around the building to catch a quick glimpse of the dance, then we had to rush back and sit in the back again until it was over. There was no video taping allowed during the recital, and they made you pay $30 for a "professional" video. When you have a 3 year old trying out ballet...this just gets insane.

I liked the teacher my daughter had, Kelley, but every other teacher there seems incompetent based on the clear performance distinction during the recital, between classes taught by Kelley, and the other classes. Especially with Kelley leaving, I definitely will NOT be re-enrolling my daughter here, and am very sad about it since there seems to be no other local ballet studio...
