Even though we live out of town, there is no doubt that Emotion Dance Company is worth the drive! I’ve seen my daughter grow leaps and bounds in skill and confidence in such a short time. The choreography is stunning and the talent at this studio is incredible. The staff are highly trained and week after week, invest their energy, talent, passion, and enthusiasm into the students. There is such a clear commitment to help the students not only develop their dance skills, but to grow as individuals. I know that my daughter’s time at Emotion is preparing her not only for a great dance season, but is also building resiliency skills that she will rely on throughout life.
