"Seven years ago when my daughters were 18 months and 3 years old, I discovered Art of the Dance. Because of the personal attention and understanding demonstrated by the staff we continue to drive from Palmdale, 50 miles, to North Hollywood. I trust my daughters' future here at Art of the Dance with Miss Leslie and can't imagine attending elsewhere!!"

"Because of Art of the Dance I have been dancing all of my life. The teachers are nice and the people here are all nice."
"Our daughter has studied dance at several other dance studios, and we find Miss Leslie's classes to be the most focused and effective. Miss Leslie teaches proper technique in a nurturing atmosphere with lots of individual attention. She cultivates a generous, non competitive, ensemble spirit among her students. We are very happy with the experience our child is having."
T. R. Oglesby, Oona's Dad, West Hollywood
"We feel very fortunate to have found Art of the Dance. Miss Leslie keeps class sizes small enough to be able to give very detailed, specific instruction and correction to each student-the kind of attention it is impossible to get in large classes. Our daughter's skill and technique have improved enormously since she began to study here. Our daughter has made many friends and LOVES coming to class."
R.E. Oglesby, Oona's Mom, West Hollywood
