What Our Parents Say…

Our dancer wanted to grow and longed to be immensely challenged! We found that with this studio, and found mentors who saw her for who she was, loved and nurtured her talent, and cultivated her technique and helped her strengthen her skills in a safe environment. Do you know what else we found? We found a family too!

AMY JO ARNOLD

All three of my kids ranging in age from 7-15 have participated in music lessons and dance classes. Not only has the programming been excellent, but the staff at ROOTS are the friendliest people we’ve ever worked with! There really is a joy in the building every time you walk through the door.

MELANIE RITZ

At ROOTS, there is just as much emphasis on growing caring, responsible kids with integrity as there is on growing amazing students. ROOTS has it all…great leadership, mentors, office staff and students! We have been to several other studios and nowhere compares to ROOTS!
