Please feel free to call the studio at ###-###-#### and ask for me. Hope to hear from you and meet you and your daughter!

I would highly recommend Dance Theatre. My daughter started last fall at 3yrs old and just loved it. The owners, Randy & Michelle are wonderful people. Randy's brother Mike handles the finances and he's great too---

I teach at and have been with the Rock-ette Dance Academy in Margate (2922 North State Road 7) for 30 years. This is our 30th year in Margate. We have a caring, family like atmosphere. The teachers have education degrees and also teach at the local schools. Also, you mention you are from New York, the founding teacher had a studio in New York- she has since sold it- but is still in contact with the new owner.
My daughter dances there as well and she is 3 1/2. For your daughter's age we have a combination tap/ballet class. The class is 1 hour a week. The rate is $55 a month plus a one time registration fee of $15(Hint: if you get the Money Mailer or Super Saver catalogue- there is a coupon for free registration). The class starts on Wednesday, August 20th and is at 5:00-6:00.
Our fall registration is August 13,14 and 15th from 4-7 p.m. You can call or come by on any of those days if you want to meet the teachers, see the studio or get any more information.
My name is S.. The phone number is ###-###-####.

Personally I love Dance Theatre. When I first moved here from NY I tried Dynasty for my then 3 year old. I found the owner to be ruthless on all children. It is a highly competitive dance school and the owner expected excellence from everyone no matter how old they were. The following year I tried Dance Theatre and found an excellent school. All of the instructors are extremely caring. You are able to watch your children on a television screen so you are not distracting them during class. The owner is a true professional. Michelle always puts the kids first. The girls who compete are excellent performers and are happy that they are dancing. I was disappointed when after two years at Dance Theatre my daughter chose not to dance but after a year hiatus she has asked to go back to Dance Theatre.
