Best part is seeing the improvement in any student whether it is memorization, technical or even socialable.
Seeing the look on students faces when they have achieved something they didn't know they could do.
I love the friendly atmosphere. The Teachers are great with the kids and have so much experience. It really is a family environment. We love being a part of the DEPAC family and look forward to many years of dance and self improvement.
The teachers are outstanding at what they do. My daughter found friends for life and a home at Dance Extensions.
I like the family atmosphere. I like how everyone supports everyone kids and parents. I like the non drama i see in other studios.
