Dancer’s Gallery will forever be in my heart and is the best place for anyone to find their passion in dance. It goes way beyond just a dance studio. It becomes a second home. XOXO

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.
