Christie Stark is the most dedicated and welcoming Dance teacher and studio owner I could ever imagine. I looked up to her each and every day and considered her my role model as well as the rest of the dance teachers there. Along the way I made some lifetime friends and memories I will never forget. 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.

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.
