"We have a monthly membership. The staff is experienced and well trained. The classes are appropriate size. They're not over crowded and they put on quality performances.

"The studio is owned by
and her husband,
. The instructors are very professional and have a broad knowledge of and" expertise in many different dance styles. For someone just beginning, you might want to start off with a Ballroom Basics(BB) course which consists of lessons in foxtrot,
, rumba,
, swing and slow dance. The cost of BB course is $150 per couple per month and includes a syllabus and dvd of the course as well as free practice time at the studio on Wednesday evenings. The syllabus lists the names of the dance moves/steps you will be learning in each dance and the dvd is very useful in helping you remember how to do those moves/steps. When you first begin learning a dance, the steps can seem overwhelming and the dvd will remind you of what you learned in the class. The free Wednesday evening practice gives you a
to practice what you've learned. If you get stuck, you can get help. There are many other dances taught at the studio. On their website, they break them down this way Ballroom Basics I & II – Foxtrot, Swing,
,
, Rumba, Slow Dance Caribbean Dances – Bolero, Bossa
, Samba Club Dances – Salsa, Hustle, Merengue Rhythm Dances –
, Swing, Rumba Social Dances – Jitterbug, Slow Dance, Polka Smooth Dances – Foxtrot,
,
Every Friday night there is a Dance Party from 8:15-10:30 or later. Cost is $12.50 per person. Refreshments are served and you have a
to meet some of the other students. Special events are held on other occasions, like Halloween and Christmas. Some Friday nights they do special themes for the dance party, like Pirate night. In the past they have done 50's or 60's nights, where you can dress in period clothes, if you wish, and music from the time period is played.
also makes up routines for engaged couples and/or their bridal party who want to do something special at the wedding. Aside from their knowledge and expertise, I must mention their patience and good humor in working with all their students. My husband and I having been taking lessons for over 5 years and are now hooked on dancing because of the instruction we have received from
and
. Give it a try! You may get hooked, too! I tried to give a quick summary here but if you are like me and want to know all you can before you make a call, then you can check out their website for more details: http://www.sherrylynnsbdc.com.

Her teacher was very nice. But I was very disappointed in the quality of instruction. The gymnastics class was too crowded. When I told the owner there was an issue, she didn't bother to make time to meet me. I would not recommend this studio.

Poorly organized office/administration. Over charged us, made us fill out the wrong forms, some ladies in the office told us to do things that other ladies in the office told us not to. They are not in communication with one another, so they tell you different things. Its kind of like a cattle lot in there - just pushing as many kids through as they can with little instruction. The instructor just watches all the girls in the dance class go across the floor trying to do a specific move and doesn't correct or intervene to teach them the real way to do it. We almost didn't get our daughters costume in time for the final show - and the instructor said that the office was supposed to call us. They never did. I stood in the office doorway waiting for 1/2 hour to drop off a form they told me to fill out. (It wasn't even the right form I was supposed to fill out anyways - but they gave it to me and instructed me to fill it out anyways.) The lady saw me standing there waiting and didn't even acknowledge me. (Even though she saw me multiple times). We don't trust them with our credit card for automatic payments. We have pulled our daughter and we're wondering if they'll be able to stop our auto payments as asked to by the new year. After mistake after mistake in dealing with this office, we are skeptical they'll get something right. They also only allowed us to have 3 tickets to the final show, so only one of the grandparents can go - the other one has to stay home. Its been a pretty pathetic experience dealing with this organization. We saw that Allegro had good reviews online, which is why we chose to drive our child from our home in auburn to

They patched dry wall and popcorn ceiling. I think they did a good job and they gentle man that did it took the time to make sure it was done right and cleanly so you can’t see the patch in the kitchen. I have not had any issues with the work.

I highly recommend
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
for young dancers. The classes fully engage the students while being fun and instructional. The costumes and props are charming and the children love them. My granddaughter enjoys her classes and her teacher.
After class she wants to watch the Nutcracker Ballet on TV so she can dance along with it. So precious!
She was at another ballet school where the teacher didn't seem interested in teaching small children.

makes it clear that they love to teach children. Because their program is so well done the children love to learn. I can't say enough good things about this excellent program.

Our children have taken dance classes at
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
and we have been able to experience both competitive and non-competitive paths and classes. We are very pleased with
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
for a multitude of reasons.
The instructors are top-notch, with a genuine interest in the students and their well being. Our children have not only learned Irish Dance, but have gained a tremendous amount of self confidence, focus and self-discipline as a result.
More than one of our children have decided to compete in Irish Dance and the instructors ensure they are learning the appropriate skills to compete at their level(s), including reinforcing good sportsmanship. Kids are encouraged to do their personal best, and most importantly enjoy the experience.
In addition, the school encourages a family atmosphere, and at most times before or during class you will find parents helping not only their children with getting shoes on, filling water bottles, but helping out wherever needed.
We would highly recommend
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
to any student considering Irish Dance for the first time, or potentially looking at coming in with previous experience.

They've been so understanding about having to cancel because of emergencies going there. They're so friendly, they did send me a really nice card. They are very honest, forthright and upright, and helpful and I just think they're wonderful. We enjoy the dance lessons so much.

was the fourth dance studio I called, but the FIRST one who was willing to schedule exactly what I needed at a reasonable price. My teenage son needed to learn how to

Astaire was closing permanently the next day due to having their franchise agreement cancelled (which is sad because the proprietor seemed delightful). Dare to Dance in Blue Ash was willing to teach him, but wanted to sell me 5 lessons for $335. When I said I thought it would take only 1 or 2 lessons, they said single classes were $119. Wow. And I think the classes were only 45 minutes (but may have been an hour - I don't remember for sure). Then I Googled again and found
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
. I called and left a message on their voice mail on a Friday afternoon, expecting to not hear back from them until after the weekend. But to my delighted surprise, I got a call back almost immediately - within about 15 minutes. Not only were they willing to arrange exactly what I wanted and needed (1-2 lessons,
Fairfax Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
only), but Piper was willing to schedule the first lesson that very afternoon. And the price (while still a lot of money) was much better than Dare to Dance - $65 for 45 minutes or $80 for an hour. Piper met us at the studio as promised and she was an outstanding instructor. She knew exactly how to break it down into very basic pieces and then kept building as he got more proficient. He had the basic box step mastered within half an hour and by the end of the first one- hour lesson was able to rotate the step, travel, execute turns and add hesitations. It was amazing. We ended up scheduling a follow-up - mostly for confidence and reassurance, and partly because I was getting so much enjoyment out of seeing my football player dance so beautifully! The second class went wonderfully, too. I would highly recommend this studio and Piper in particular for dancers (and wanna be dancers!) of any age or ability.
