What Parents Have to Say About Encore!

My daughter is a big "Ms. Maggie fan" and so is the whole family. The dance programs have been fun and enjoyable as well as a great learning experience. The recitals have really helped my daughter gain confidence without fear. This is our 3rd wonderful year! Thanks Encore!

Emme loved dance this past year and I hope she will be able to continue in the fall. You do a great job with all the kids and the recital was fabulous! Libby can't wait to get started too. She watched the recital with rapt attention! :-)
