My daughter is so happy to be a part of this Astra studio family. She enjoys her classmates and her fun dancing instructors. I am so happy we found this place because the staff is wonderful, kind, and communicate often with the parents. The studio is clean and roomy and I appreciate the coloring books and things to do for other youngsters hanging out. Overall, this is a wonderful studio because my 4-yr-old daughter is growing in her dancing skills while learning to play respectfully with others, and making new friends. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.
We are so glad that we found this studio. My daughter has been dancing for 6 years and has been at other studios. In the past year my daughter has grown as a dancer, she has tried new things and is leaning to step out of her comfort zone. Miss Brittany teaches them more than just dance; she teaches them to listen to what that body can do and the confidence to do it. She also teaches the students the performance behind the dance, not just the moves. My daughter has grown all around in just one year and we can't wait to see what the future will bring her at Astra Studio.
"Miss Brittany is truly gifted as both a teacher and a choreographer, and Miss Nanci is always organized and adept and keeping things running smoothly. They are both friendly and approachable. The studio is welcoming, comfortable, spacious, and clean. We have seen remarkable improvement in our daughters' skills over the past year. Most importantly, the girls always look forward to and thoroughly enjoy their classes and competitions. We love Astra Studio!"
Just a short note to say congratulations on putting together a wonderful show! It was our first year with Astra and we didn't know what to expect. It was very well done! Logistically, the communication and organization was great in the run up to the recital. And the performance ran on time and the program is such high quality and professional - a really nice tribute to each one of your dancers. The dancers were amazing, as were the costumes and your choice of music. You have a very talented group of dancers. We really enjoyed the whole thing. Thank you for encouraging my daughter! She wants to add acro and lyrical next year."
I can't say enough about Astra Studio and it's staff!!
Miss Brittany is friendly, respectful and truly loves the kids and teaching. She goes above and beyond to help her students improve. My daughter needed some help getting ready for an audition. Brittany was right there to help her. Not only did she help her prepare but she helped build her confidence too, which was huge! I don't think she would have been able to audition without her help. Miss Nanci greets everyone with a welcoming smile and runs "a smooth ship". She makes sure everyone knows what is happening by emails or news letters and responds quickly to emails. This is a huge help for us forgetful moms! My daughter looks forward to her time at Astra and has never complained about going once. She loves Brittany and Nanci and feels at home in the studio. She wants to add more classes next year.
Thank you so much for being so loving and accepting. We couldnt be happier!!
My daughter is having the best experience with Astra Studio of Dance and Performing Arts. Miss Brittany & Miss Nanci have such a great connection with all of the dancers. Miss Brittany is always smiling; she is kind and patient; and brings her new, fresh ideas into the choreography and dance instruction. Miss Nanci keeps everything so organized at the studio and always keeps everyone informed as to what is going on. Being a member of the Junior Competition Team has been so much fun for my daughter. She looks forward to going to classes and competitions. There is never any stress, only fun! It is a joy to be a part of Astra Studio of Dance and Performing Arts!
As a proud and loving Grandma, I just had to write and let you know how great it has been to watch my granddaughter continue with her love of dance at your studio with Ms. Brittany. I have watched my granddaughter grow in many ways, not only with poise and grace but also with allowing her to step out of her comfort zone and develop self confidence. My granddaughter is learning tools that go outside the box as in, learning to accept constructive criticism, developing interpersonal skills, making new friends and being accepted as part of a group working towards a common goal. All while making dancing fun! Learning the "art" of hard work and discipline and loving what you are doing is so very important. All people should be so blessed!
Thank you and keep moving all those Happy Feet!
Just when I thought you couldn't outdo yourselves, YOU DID! "Something in the Water" was fabulous!! Love, hard work and dedication, all very obvious! Thank you Miss Brittany and Miss Nanci, you're irreplaceable.To all the Astra Dancers, it was wonderful watching you perform. You've all worked so hard putting your heart and soul into your dances, I just love watching you. Congratulations!!"
"Thank you so much for making this year fun for the girls! Miss Brittany puts on an amazing show. We enjoyed watching everyone perform and are proud to be part of the Astra family!"
At Astra my daughter has grown to believe in her dance skills and in her ability to perform. Her confidence has flourished and so has her passion for the art of dance. She has been encouraged to be a role-model and risen to every challenge thanks to the positive environment. The studio is always welcoming! It is truly an environment conducive to artistic growth and personal confidence. Ms. Brittany is phenomenal at generating original choreography and bringing the story to life. I am very impressed with all of the performances. We are elated to be part of the Astra family! Can't wait for the recital!
