As a mother VERY active children, in the name of sanity, I was looking for an activity that my daughters would enjoy and expand some of their energy. I contacted the local dance studio to let them try the complimentary class. It was love at first dance! We all enjoyed the combination of interaction and exercise. We enrolled that day! It was to my good fortune that the dance school was Take Five Dance!
The Academy Director, has a philosophy of “Whether or not your child pursues dance professionally, they will have the background both on and off the stage to succeed.” I fully realized that, especially at recital times. Some of the rules seemed nonsensical to me at the time. However, as my daughters continued in their dance, we have had the opportunity to go to many different recitals and competitions both locally and nationally; I can now see the wisdom behind that philosophy.
It is a great feeling to know that at Take Five their dance training is age appropriate. The school is looking after my child’s long term best interest, not the short term trophy, at the risk of my child’s health. The level of professionalism at all levels of dance is impressive, and when Take Five participates or competes in any event, comments are always made about how well behaved the kids are. This is all a result of the expectations laid out at Take Five.
Now that my daughters are both grown women I can see that many benefits that growing up at Take Five has afforded them: Confidence, Poise, Posture and to my surprise, Time Management and Enhanced Academic Skills.
And for that, I will always be grateful.
