“Three years ago my seven year old son Mickey, now ten, was anxious about telling me that he wanted to take dance, as well as play football. He was worried about my reaction, fearing a negative response… to his delight, I reacted positively and encouraged him to give it a try!
We began to search for a dance school and Kids Etc. was repeatedly suggested as having great programs and instructors. We met with Rheesa, the director and Mickey quickly started off by taking a Hip Hop Class. We soon discovered that he would be the only boy in his class and one of few in the entire school. Dance was a new experience for both of us and being the only boy in the class added a little extra pressure for Mickey, but with the guidance of Rheesa, off we went!
The instructors and students embraced Mickey quickly and he felt at home instantly. Kids Etc. truly is a remarkable place to learn and dance. Three years later, Mickey is no longer playing football, but is now enrolled as a full time student taking competitive classes such as Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical, Hip Hop and Musical Theater. Dance has really allowed him to explore his creativity, travel, stay fit and meet some amazing people.
The instructors at Kids really care about their students! You you can see it in the way they conduct their classes, the extra time they put in during competition season and the one and one instruction in helping their students reach their potential. Both my wife and I are so proud to see our son on stage, performing with the BIGGEST SMILE on his face. Kids Etc. has been such a positive influence in Mickey’s life. We want to give a BIG THANK YOU to the School for embracing our son and making him a part of the Kids Etc. family.”
