DARIN, JANUARY 2017
Dancing at the Urge Dance Complex has been a wonderful experience for my children. They teach children the art and technique of dance in a supportive and encouraging environment. My children’s skill level has improved so much and they love it! They’ve also learned how to really express themselves through dance! Danielle and Noelle are always an absolute pleasure to work with.

My daughter has been dancing at The Urge Dance Complex for over 2 years now and I've seen her not only improve as a dancer, but have witnessed her confidence and self esteem increase as well. The dance instructors at the Urge do a fantastic job at making dance fun while also challenging each dancer to improve and do their very best. Danielle and Noelle are extremely dedicated to sharing their passion of dance with their students and are simply amazing! I can't say enough positive things about them and their dedication to their students! It truly feels like family when you have a dancer at The Urge.
