"Stay away! Most unorganized, unprofessional dance studio I have ever been a part of. Lack of teachers. They allow adults to dance with the younger kids. Adults should" have their own dance lines. Teachers eat while teaching, class never started on time. Dirtiest studio I have ever been in. Girls hang out in the bathroom. They allow the teachers boyfriend and the older girls boyfriends to hang out or
on a couch watching while the girls dance. Made my daughter uncomfortable!! Everything is last minute and nothing was ever taken serious. don't waste your time or money, go to another studio!!

"Fantastic. I started out just wanting salsa lessons and ended up learning all types of dances. These instructors are my family. I love them all and I love my experience.

Dance lessons

Dance lessons are fun and beneficial in many ways. They provide exercise and social interaction, as well as the opportunity to develop confidence and poise.

A new roof springs a leak shortly after being installed. The homeowners hire a new roofing company after the original installers fail to make the repair. They say the work was done quickly and well.

My daughter started learning ballet at Momentum when the studio was still in that little white building facing 1st Ave S. She began in Pre-Ballet and Tap, and tried over the years Jazz and Irish. But she settled on Ballet as her favorite.

Moss, the director of the studio, worked tirelessly to help get the studio off the ground and to larger facilities to teach all of the students that have come in over the years.
At one point when my husband lost his job for 9+ months, during the Recession, then for a good 8 months after that could only find jobs that brought in half or less the income we needed,
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
just asked us to pay what we could. What she felt was important was that my daughter was able to continue dancing if that was what she wanted. When my husband got a job again at more than what he used to, we donated money back to help the studio.
My daughter is completing her 10th year and is considering moving on, but only because teenagers do that. Not because she doesn't love the studio. The students try hard, the teachers are excellent and understanding (one of them is trying to convince my daughter into staying into dancing, no matter what studio, because the teacher believes she is that good). And
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
has always been understanding and helpful when a parent or student needed that help.
I highly recommend this studio to any aspiring dancer, especially ballet, jazz, and hip hop.

has been my daughter's dance instructor for over 2 years. She is very knowledgeable and keeps her students interested and thriving in a fun environment. She teaches variation and techniques, but also allows students free expression. The cost is very affordable through

city recreation and sign-up is easy. There is a recital at the end of the school year at a stage setting and the kids get a big boost of confidence performing as well as watching all the different classes dance. Entry begins at age 5 for Fun with Dance and students can advance levels in the other available classes/age groups.

The studio is owned by
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
and her husband,
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
. 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,
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
, rumba,
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
, 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

There are many other dances taught at the studio. On their website, they break them down this way

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
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
and

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

to attend this dance studio....but the other previous positive reviews don't characterize this business very well at all.

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
Richmond 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.
Richmond Dance Studios Provider Name Locked
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.
