I’m going crazy with just just two kids while school is closed, but they opened their doors to all kids today in our community for a free Irma Relief Day Camp and discounted prices the rest of the week until school resumes.

                                                                              It was our first time there, and I can’t say enough good things about how well organized it was as well as how kind all the staff were. It’s a HUGE studio run by people with even HUGER hearts.

The teachers are wonderful. The atmosphere makes you feel comfortable to drop your child off at class and run an errand. My daughter would live there if she could! Ms. Christie was not only one of her instructors she became family. I feel privileged that my daughter had the chance to attend! Dancer’s Gallery helped make my daughter the confident young lady she is today.

Miss Christie is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Miss Christie and her entire staff go above and beyond for their students. This new studio in Cooper City is amazing. You feel like home when you walk in there. I wish Miss Christie and the entire staff of Dancer’s Gallery all the best in their new home.

Her career in the arts flourished into: Dancing, Acting, Singing, Modeling, a Marlins Mermaid, Choreography, and has featured as a dancer in the movie “Rock of Ages”. I attribute her talented skills to the training, discipline and opportunities offered in this wonderful environment.

Their facility is like no other and they offer a huge variety of performing arts for children and adults. Each instructor brings their own style and offer a lot of freedom of expression while focusing on technique. I love it there and love the fact that my two boys and daughter can share the experience of dancing at Dancer’s Gallery. BRAVO! ”
