G-Force Dance Legacy
 

G-FORCE TEACHERS

Words from a Few of Our Wonderul G-Force Families.....

" In a little over a month, G-Force Dance Legacy has already become home away from home for my daughters, to the point that they don't want to leave the studio, even when class is over. In terms of the dancing, couldn't have asked for better teachers! Under their guidance, you see those kids quickly picking up new technique and learning choreography that is advanced, fun and engaging to the audience! In terms of infrastructure, I love how it seems like they thought of everything (in addition to the obvious dance classrooms) to bring that homey feeling to the studio and make it comfortable, not just for the kids but for the parents as well: a lounge area, a snack area for breaks during class, dressing rooms (separate from the restrooms), a storage area for personal belongings, and my personal favorite: a homework area, especially important for the kids who spend several hours of their week there, like my oldest daughter. Plus, they sponsor events designed to build a sense of community and bring the G-Force dance families together. So happy we made this choice!"
-The Paulino Family (G-Force Family)

Our daughter was never involved in much, but as a parent we wanted her to have an extra curricular activity.... We thought she might be too young for dance, but decided to enroll her and see where this road took us. Wow! Having Ms. Nina as our teacher was the best experience our 5 year old could have had. Not only does she LOVE Ms. Nina and all the G-force staff, she loves dance! We have seen her evolve from a shy little baby to a confident dancer. We love all the Greenhouse family and couldn't imagine life without G-Force!"

"We currently have two girls enrolled at G-Force Dance Legacy, Alicia (9) & Alaina (5). The GFDL family has had such a positive impact on our daughters and not only are they teaching them to be amazing dancers but they are also teaching them how to express themselves and to be more confident. They both have learned so much already and absolutely love going to dance class! All of the instructors are awesome at what they do and really take the time to help each student. We highly recommend this studio & want to thank the entire GFDL family for welcoming us to their studio!" - The Gonzales Family (G-Force Family)
