The Talent Factory Reviews

Hi Dana,

I just wanted to tell you what a great experience I had observing this week!! 

Backing up a bit, when we were carefully selecting which studio we were moving to, Taylor participated in a camp week last summer (2012).   Even though you were in a temporary studio, the atmosphere was exactly what I hoped it would be.  Everyone was so friendly and truly passionate about dance. It was fun and serious at the same time. We were hooked. 


Last year she grew so much as a dancer thanks to the dedication of you and your staff. I felt like she was so far behind other dancers of her age when she started. Although she still has so much to learn, I am amazed at how far she has come. Not only has her skill improved but her love of dance is immeasurable. I can't thank you all enough, especially Miss Keryn, who has totally transformed my little girl. 


So, to my point, this is my first time ever observing classes. I can't tell you how much this week affirmed my choice to become a part of TFDC. The classes were very professional, organized and effective.  But what I knew in my heart, I finally saw with my own eyes. Every teacher was so passionate and really cares about every student.  Their energy and enthusiasm was so intense that I wanted to dance!! Lol. Miss Tara, Miss Keryn, Miss Kayla & yourself are truly special people. 

I'm so glad I finally took the time to sit in on classes and was able to feel the pure joy that she does for dance. What an amazing program and we are thrilled to be a part of it all. Thank you for all you do. 

Thank YOU. The hard work, talent and caring you and your staff put into everything you do is apparent and appreciated. Looking forward to next year's show! -June
