It was my daughters first year with 747, after moving from a different studio and it was such a warm Welcome from Mr. Kelly and Miss Rebbeca. They made it a very easy transition for her and are amazing at what they do!!! I can’t wait to see what the years ahead hold!! - Lee H.
It is so great to have such talented dance instructors in our small community so that our young girls and boys can dance, and as parents we can make it work as there is no long commute! My daughter is always eager for dance class to start, is able to do what she loves, and always has positive things to tell me after dance class, which to me says a lot about our dance studio! -Megan S.
“ I have 3 girls that attend Studio 747 and the enthusiasm of the teachers and the atmosphere is what makes them so passionate about dance. I couldn’t imagine them dancing anywhere else.” -Chantel N.
