I really liked Waterford Dance Academy in Lindenhurst. My daughter started there when she was three. I especially like the way they handle the "recital" for the little ones there. If you go to the park district or most other studios, the little ones are in the big year end recital with all the other kids. So you end up waiting an hour to see your kid dance for 2 minutes. At Waterford, for the 3-5 year olds, they have the "recital" in the studio at the end of the year. You end up getting to see your child's class (and only their class!) right in front of you. And it winds up being about 20-30 minutes long. They do a bunch of different dances. It was the cutest thing ever!
