If you ask me why I choose Kaleidoscope for my daughter, I can't give you one specific reason because it is a combination of a bunch of things. For me, what sets Kaleidoscope apart from other dance options, is the fact that the teachers have degrees in dance. The caliber of instruction shines through starting with the very little ones all the way up to the dance ensemble. From the moment you enter the front door, you are warmly welcomed by Laura and you instantly feel a part of the Kaleidoscope family. She goes above and beyond to accommodate you, work with your schedule, and get your child in the correct class. She genuinely cares for all of the kids and it shows. As for the recital, I am not sure who enjoys it more, the kids or the adults! It is professionally done and very impressive. I love the fact that the faculty performs and shows their talent, as well as the fact that you get a DVD of the entire show! You can not get the personal attention and care at another dance studio. Without question, you get what you pay for at Kaleidoscope!
