What our clients say

“My 3 year old loved taking Mindy’s May session ballet class. This was my daughters first introduction to any kind of dance, and it was the perfect beginner ballet class. Miss Mindy is so sweet with kids, and really has a way of making dance fun and engaging. Mindy is patient and knows that 2 and 3 year olds can have a mind of their own sometimes. She goes with the flow and keeps a positive attitude.  When the session was complete, my daughter continued to ask about Miss Mindy’s dance class. I would recommend this class to anyone looking for beginner or a mini-session ballet class for their little girl.”

“My little was so excited for Miss Mindy’s shining threes dance class! Once there, her shyness came out and Miss Mindy did an amazing job getting her to come out of her shell by the first class. That is not always easy to do! It was such a fun session and we cannot wait to do more! Could not recommend Miss Mindy more! “

Paige Reid
Shining threes

“Let me start by saying we have tried two other dance classes before we found Miss Mindy. The coaches were lovely, but just didn’t click with her. She didn’t want to go, and it was pulling teeth to get her into her ballet outfit. Then we found Miss Mindy, and all that changed. My daughter could not stop talking about Miss Mindy and how much fun she had in class. She was waking up and asking if it was dance day. Mindy was not only teaching her dance but also how to wait in line, to being a friend, and so much more. We give our kids the choice to pick what extracurricular activities to do, my daughters always chooses to go back to dance class with Miss Mindy ”
