Shining Through Dance

Shining through Dance!

Our son has been with SSD for many years. SSD has given him the grounding to further expand his dancing to the next level. The teachers are kind, considerate and passionate about their teaching. Over the years we have met many families and it is wonderful to watch there children grow into wonderful dancers. Sharon has also given Kiet the opportunity to help in class and he loves the to help the younger students. By far the premier dance school. Trevor Cox
