    Parent Testimonials

    Encore has had such a positive influence on my daughter. She has learned about commitment to a team, hard work, and she has become a dancer who truly loves what she's doing! – Kerry L.
    I love Encore because it has helped my daughter build confidence not only inside the studio, but in her everyday life. She's made lifelong friends, and I've never seen such an encouraging and supportive group of girls work together as a team from toddler to teenager. She's grown so much in her 5 years as a dancer at Encore and I'm thankful she has the Encore team and teachers as her role models! – Antea A.
    I have watched my daughter transform at the age of 2 from a shy, nervous kid who was terrified to dance to a happy little dancer. She looks forward to every class and that can only be attributed to the teacher and the friends she has made at Encore! We love it here and I hope she has many more happy years ahead of her! – Julie S.
    Very professionally run dance studio, with excellent communication sent out frequently to parents. Tiana has been dancing since she was three years old and immediately felt welcome by teachers and dancers at the studio. Thanks for another great year. – Kim D.
    Our girls absolutely adore their teachers and the S.T.A.R. student assistants! Whether you are looking for a fun and engaging place for your children to experience dance instruction or your child is a serious dancer who seeks competition level dance, EDA is the place for you! They make every student feel important, valued, and part of the EDA family! I would not hesitate to recommend Encore Dance Academy to anyone! – Jenn P.
