They are learning the basic tap and ballet steps, in a fun and playful environment. Their fees are reasonable, and we’ve only been charged the monthly class fee and a costume fee for the recital that will be held in June. All parents signed a form agreeing to the costume fee, with the option to opt-out if they don’t want their child to participate in recital.
If your child has to miss their class, they can attend another class as a make-up. The owner keeps parents informed of all of their activities via an emailed newsletter, as well as signs and flyers in the school itself. This has included fun activities such as Halloween costume day, and an upcoming PJ day. They have a monitor screen in the lobby that shows the classes real-time, that parents are welcome to stay and watch, and they bring parents into the classes periodically for presentations.
As someone who took dance classes as a child, and whose son took dance classes as a child, I’ve been impressed with what my granddaughter is experiencing now, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CREATIVE SOLES!!
When we first moved to the area 5 years ago, we struggled to find a dance studio that was a positive environment with exceptional dance education for my daughter who was a seasoned dancer already. When we met the Director, Liz, we knew we found our new home at CSDC! As one of her first students, we have continued to support the studio through its tremendous growth and are loyal customers. She has made us feel so welcome and over the last 5 years has nurtured and guided my daughter and has encouraged and pushed her to be the best she can be, not only in dance, but in life.
The entire teaching staff is well trained and along with Liz, maintain a positive loving attitude toward all the children and treats them all as if they were their own. Sometimes going over and above for these kids more than what a normal studio would ever do. The dance parents are equally as supportive of each other and support each other. Whether it’s carpooling to class or helping with costumes and make-up we are all in this together! We love Creative Soles and recommend the studio to anyone whether you dance on a recreational level or want to be on an award winning competition team.
