I have developed relationships with so many at DTS. If dance is not in my "week", I feel incomplete. Dance has helped me become more outgoing and helped get me out of my shy phase. I love performing in the recital! I always love being backstage with my friends!
I couldn't imagine dancing anywhere else!I have danced here since I was 4 . The people here are not just friends, teammates and teachers, but a family:).
Dancing at Dance Theatre South has been a big part of my life for over 10 years. I have learned so much and grown tremendously, not just as a dancer. DTS teaches you to be respectful and kind and to get involved in your community. DTS provides a positive learning environment.
Overall, dancing here has been a great experience. I have improved as both a dancer and a person as well as become more comfortable with new people!
Going to DTS has helped mold me into who I am as a person. It has helped me develop through learning how to treat others with respect, hold myself to high standards, and to always set goals to strive to be better, not just at dance. I have made countless friendships and have gotten a lot more involved with the community by dancing here.
We started patronizing Dance Theatre South (DTS) when it was located in the Kroger shopping center on Hwy 54. My oldest daughter was 3 years old and the only daughter at the time. She particpated in a half day camp during her summer break from daycare. After trying other dance camps and gymnastics classes, we decided to come back to DTS. We were attracted to the all-inclusive cost of the DTS program. Paying on a consistent schedule, without having to pay another large amount at recital time, for costumes, family tickets and such, was ideal for our family budget. It has made the dance season much more pleasant. Claire, Kristi, and the DTS staff are great! They work with our children with compassionate professionalism. They let each child express their individual personalities through dance. They are obviously in tune with their dancers and their craft.
Dance Theatre South is a place that my daughter feels very comfortable with other girls her age. The classes she is in helps her with her gymnastics classes. I love her teachers patience with her and all of the other girls. Keep up the good work. Thanks for having the option to pay tuition in one payment for the semester.
My daughter started at Dance Theatre South as a 3-year-old and is in her third year of classes there now. She LOVES it! Claire and the staff are professional, but easy-going. The atmosphere at the dance studio is always positive. And the year-end recital is unbelievable! I’ve been so impressed with the whole experience. We’ll be back next year without a doubt.
Deciding to join Dance Theatre South was one of the greatest things we did for our child. At first, we were intimidated by the rules involved but quickly realized they were in place to make sure everyone has fun and gets their money’s worth. Our child loves going to Dance Theatre South and is always welcomed with open arms. The classes are very well structured and our daughter has learned a great deal in a very short span of time.
Going to dance class at DTS has been the highlight of my day for so many years, I can’t imagine my life without it. I am very grateful for the wonderful DTS staff who spread positivity, and creativity throughout the studio to create an enjoyable environment. The teachers not only teach dance steps, but also respect, self confidence and self love which are lessons that I will carry with me throughout life.
My daughter has had the pleasure of taking dance lessons for the past two years from Dance Theatre South. Each year she has had a different teacher and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about both teachers and both of her student assistant teachers! My daughter looks forward to her dance class all week and can’t wait for classes to start up again after summer break. This year was her first year participating in the recital and she had such a wonderful time. My family was so impressed with how professional the show was! Everything was so organized and ran smoothly. Claire and all of the teachers do a fabulous job of creating age appropriate, skill building routines for each age group and also select beautiful, yet age appropriate costumes for the students as well. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful dance studio near by for my daughters to learn from. My 5 year old will be returning for her third year and my almost 3 year old will begin lessons in the fall!
