"Arete Dance Center is just the best dance studio I have ever been to - I have lived all over the world and danced in France, Sweden, UK and the US. But never have encountered a better, professional yet friendly set of instructors. HIGHLY recommended." - Helen P.
"Not only are the staff and teachers extremely knowledgeable, they are also professional, friendly, and responsive to student concerns, and they cultivate an authentic sense of family -- it is a dance family. What contributes to this, additionally, are the other students who are always open to chat, extend some of their own dance tips, or just a sympathetic ear. I highly recommend Areté to anyone interested in learning dance, whether you are new to dance or have many years of experience to your name." - Ashwin S.
"All the instructors I’ve worked with have technical background and skill, but also the ability to instill this in students in a way that is both digestible and fun - I think the latter is more difficult to find in a teacher, and it’s also the reason I push myself to practice/learn/grow as much as I do. Kris, who owns the studio and teaches many of the group classes, is absolutely the nicest person. She genuinely cares about/loves her students in a way that creates the studio’s whole atmosphere. ADC truly feels like a family to me, and I couldn’t imagine doing what I’m doing anywhere else." - Sarah M.
