"I have loved taking our daughter to Starr Studios. She has gained new skills both physically and socially. It has been such a blessing watching her blossom under the care of her teacher. I would highly recommend enrolling your child here. Teachers and staff are very kind, and we have always been pleased with communication between students, parents, teachers, and staff. We are grateful for the experience!"

"My daughter started dance one and a half years ago and began here at Starr Studio. I can't say enough positive things about the studio. My daughter stated just last week after picking her up from ballet, “I wish I could dance everyday!” My daughter also just made the varsity dance team as a freshman, thanks to Starr Studio. It has been a very positive influence on my daughter's life."
Mother of a 14 Year Old Student
"I had been trying to get my little nephew into a dance class and could not find one where he was not only learning, but enjoying himself until I found Starr. He has so much fun and enjoys it so much he looks forward to coming to class. The staff are great, not only with him, but with the children and as long as they are here, we will keep coming."
Yolanda (Aunt of 5 year old student)
"I’ve been at Starr Studios for about 5 months now and I have learned so much! I enjoy the challenge because it motivates me to work until I get it, when I do my class mates are so kind! (As usual.) We are taught well, my teacher is patient and I never feel like a failure. I’m here to stay. There’s balance and no pressure! I couldn’t imagine myself in another studio!”"
Marissa B. (16 year old student 2010-present)
"Being a professional dancer, it’s been a struggle to find my daughter a studio that balances technique and performances. [The director] and her studio are absolutely amazing! It’s great to have a patient, hardworking teacher that can do what she is asking of her students. She breaks things down and takes time to make sure everyone has it down perfectly. Every little thing has time spent on it. Starr Studio and [the director] get 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!"
Shuree N. (Mother of 16 year old student)
"My Daughter participated for the summer and is having a great time. She is learning skills that she can take with her through out her life. It has made her more confident and she is gaining self esteem. The teachers are very patient and kind to the students. All the kids in her group love going and my daughter is always asking when can she go back. We go once a week. Next session we will try twice a week. It has been a great experience for us."
Mother of 11 Year Old Student 2010
"My youngest daughter loves coming to dance. This is her 3rd year at Starr. She is never too tired and is always eager to be here. The staff has made us feel like family, even allowing me to help out back stage. That is what Starr Studios is all about; a family of dancers, getting together to enjoy what makes them happy, and sharing it all! So much so that my oldest daughter has found the dancer in herself with Irish Dance. Thank you for adding it to the schedule. We love you all."
Cara R. (Mother of 8 and 11 year old students)
"Starr Studios is the best! My three year old has been attending classes weekly for almost a year now. She LOVES IT! The teachers are amazing and really know how to get the kids motivated and get them moving. It's wonderful to see how much they have learned when you get to see them perform on stage twice in one year. They have classes for every age group, even adults, so my daughter can continue as long as she would like. I am so glad I found the perfect place for my music and dance loving little girl to learn, grow, and make friends with the same interests. Thank you so much Starr Studios!"
