I am so grateful for All That Jazz. My 5-year-old daughter has been dancing there for 3 years, and my 2-year-old son started this year. Dancing at All That Jazz has given my daughter such confidence. It has taught her dance, for sure, but more than that has taught her composure, courage, and grace. She had a really hard time separating from me when she first started, but everyone was so helpful and patient with her, it was such a wonderful growth opportunity for her. Dancing has given her a means of self-expression - she frequently dances around the house, and her dancing/singing reflects what kind of mood she is in - it is truly an expressive and creative outlet for her, something she has really needed during this past year. Perhaps most importantly, dancing at All That Jazz has taught her that she can face the things she is scared of - like walking into a dance studio with new friends, or getting up on stage when she can't see mom and dad, or walking backstage without her parents before a big show she is nervous about - and not only survive, but rise to the occasion and thrive. I am so, so grateful for how dancing has taught her to be courageous, confident, and to trust herself. Miss Deb and her staff have done a remarkable job of keeping everyone safe during the pandemic - all the ventilation, cleaning, education, and clear communication has been very noticed and appreciated. The studio does an amazing job of making kids (and families) feel welcome, like they really matter, and making sure they (and we) know how invested the teachers and owner are in them and their "success." All That Jazz is something really special, and I am grateful that my family has been able to be a part of it!

We are very grateful to Miss Deb (the owner) and her amazing and talented teachers for everything they are doing for our daughter. We have been “living” with All That Jazz for 10 years now and we can see how our daughter has been growing as a dancer year after year. At All That Jazz the students can express themselves without having to worry about feeling judged. From the teachers, to the students everyone is always so kind and always willing to help each other out. This is a place where you will always smile and have fun! We are very glad to be a part of All That Jazz!

I can't recommend All That Jazz Dance Studio highly enough! The quality of dance instruction, variety of classes, choreography, organization and communication are superb. Dance classes at All That Jazz, particularly this past year during Covid, have been a shining light in my daughters' lives.

We are grateful for All That Jazz and its staff. When we adopted our daughter from Haiti at age 10, she had never been in a dance class before but clearly enjoyed dancing (and singing) around the house. We thought a perfect Christmas present would be to get her into dance classes. Multiple barriers existed: (1) our daughter's lack of prior formal dance experience, (2) it was the middle of the school year, and (3) our daughter spoke no English. All That Jazz seems to be very mission oriented around allowing all children to foster a love of dance and only then fostering each child's full dance capability. This explains why the studio was the only one we talked to in December 2014 that would take our daughter and why the staff continues to work with our family to include and develop our daughter despite multiple hospitalizations each year for chronic conditions. It is a great credit to the All That Jazz staff that dance is, by far, our daughter's favorite extracurricular activity. Again, we are grateful for you. We reflected recently on where we were six and a half years ago when we had a 10-year-old who was interested in dance, had no prior formal dance experience, and spoke no English. You were the only studio we talked to readily willing to provide her a dance experience. Thank you for the mission you work hard for every year.

My daughter danced at All That Jazz for the last 6 years. It has been a fantastic experience and Miss Deb did an incredible job running the studio through all of the past year's challenges. She always makes dancing such a positive and fun part of the kids' lives.

Miss Deb and her teachers at All That Jazz managed to make everything about the 2020-2021 school year fun and safe, with extraordinary year-end recitals on both Zoom and in person on a big outdoor stage. Miss Deb's organization, dance creativity, good cheer, discipline, and ability to not appear frazzled is inspirational. She is a wonderful role model for these kids and she and her teachers bring out the very best in all of them!

We have enjoyed our time at All That Jazz! Communication has been exceptional, especially during this past year. We felt safe with all the protocols in place. The recital was fun! No worries on the demands or stress front. The environment was supportive and a great community feel.

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful year and spectacular recital!!!! You provided a wonderful sense of belonging and "normalcy" during a very crazy time. Shira loved it and I couldn't stop smiling watching all of the wonderful performances. You have encouraged these kids to truly love dance and feel comfortable with themselves and that is amazing! Shira can't wait for the Summer camp week. We are so happy to have found your studio!

My son has been part of All That Jazz for several years and has absolutely LOVED it! Miss Deb is awesome, amazing, enthusiastic, and so well organized. His Hip Hop and Tap teacher, Miss Heather, has helped my son to grow as a dancer and as an individual (yes, even this crazy Covid year). Like everyone at All That Jazz, she is committed to both her craft and to making sure that all of the students HAVE FUN!!!

I started going to Your Neighborhood Studio based on the great recommendations from my fellow google-ers. Though I've only taken the Sunday Zumba class I can speak very highly of this studio.
