See what our dance families are saying about RTB...
"Raise the Barre has been a fabulous experience for our daughter! She moved from a much larger studio where she was no longer loving dance. After a few classes she had fallen in love all over again thanks to Ms. Ellyn’s fun and engaging teaching style. Two years later and she still loves every class. She’s also learned and improved her technique and made lots of new friends! A smaller more personal studio was definitely the right choice!" - The Comstock Family
"My daughter has loved classes from RTB! She has learned so much from Ms. Ellyn and Ms. Terri. The classes are appropriate and fun for little ones while teaching the skills and techniques she needs to learn!" - The Jones Family
"My kids have taken several sessions with Ms. Ellyn and we love Raise the Barre! She really does awesome at both teaching them disciplined techniques and having fun!"
- The Roseberry Family
