What a great dance recital! First, I wasn't sure my kids were learning that much, but wow - did they surprise me when show time came. Great costumes and the show had us laughing and crying. They love their teachers and loved going every

If looking for a dance studio look elsewhere,This place is all about money and the owner getting paid on time,The owner has nothing to do with the place except for picking up the money and asking the slaves who work for her to get what needs to be done,I went here with my 2 daughters and 1 month before the recital after paying all my dues and paying 1000 for costumes my husband lost his job and i was told i couldnt perform in the recital unless i came up with the last months dues,What kind of a person would do this,It broke my kids hearts ,This woman is a money hungry witch.

My daughter's been with Cathy's Dance Studio for 5 wonderful years and can't wait to go back this fall for more ballet and tap. The teachers are wonderful, fun and caring. They take their cue from owner Miss Michelle, who loves the kids and dancing. She practices what she preaches and dances right along with them in the show -- high quality -- every June. Every child gets a chance to shine -- from the babies to the adults. This has been a great self-esteem builder for my daughter. I hope quality dance teaching at Cathy's around for another 50+ years.

I can't say enough about the way my daughter is treated at this school. Everyone treats us so nice. They really make you feel special. Most of all my kid learned so much. I don't mind spending money when you get bang for your buck. This was our first year and the show blew us away is all I can say. Broadway style you know and the kid's actually danced. My 3 year old baby was rockin it . She really danced. I love the school. My daughter took ballet last year. They usually start them with ballet,tap,or acro. Probably gonna add tap this year they really give a good discount when you take more than one class. The kids seem to really like tap. My kid really liked her teachers too and the director Miss Michele who seems to put her heart and soul in it. She must cuz the school is terrific!

being a single mom I don't have much time on my hands so using the time wisely is of great importance to me... which I'm sure a lot of you reading this this can relate to... this school is the best I've been to so far and I've tried quite a few. all i can say is they are awesome... my daughter has learned so much since she has been at this school...they sell all the dancewear at cheap prices so no need to go running around town to find a bargain. they let you pay the tuition monthly and there's no obligation to pay for the whole year in case you move. (which can be an issue for me with my job). the show in june was outta this world all the kids were amazing! the only thing I wish there was another show...my little one was wanting to get back on stage again.

I'm a third generation at Cathy's ... mom and grandma were students too and now my daughter is! Such a warm and inviting studio. No attitudes... Directors are on top of everything and truly care about all details most importantly the kids... secretaries are sooo helpful. The teachers really care about the children. The studio gives family discounts and all types of promotions. Can't beat the price for the level of service. Miss Cathy's has always been known in Astoria for this reason. Studio is always clean. Also, it becomes an extended family (4 generations later). My husband and I can't wait til september our daughter has been nagging us all summer about when dance class starts!

I brought my child into the door s of Cathy's and was greeted by a friendly front desk staff, who promptly gave me all the information I needed. My daughter quickly bonded with the loveable teachers who give 110% and always have new exciting steps to teach their students. I had the pleasure of knowing my child was safe and happy in the classroom with their teachers. The classrooms are beautifully crafted with wooden dance flooring and air conditioning. Never have I gotten my money's worth as I have in Cathy's. At the end of the year, (In June) you, the parents and the rest of the family have the pleasure of enjoying a broadway style show in an elegent theatre featuring your child on stage. Cathy's is always improving their services and never lowering standards. Once again, If your looking for five star dancing and memories to cherish for years, Cathy's is the place to be. (And to all the dancers in the 2010 recital, You did a supurb job, especially you Cathettes with your Michael Jackson Tribute.)

Nothing but money and more money,To many extra expenses,Owner acts nice and talks to the parents in the beginning then she hides out so she doesnt have to see the parents and face the music,Costumes 90.00 each way overpriced, then 10 for tights,They charge to be in the recital,plus insurance,plus the program for the show.(I never payed those fees in my last dance class) Looks like she was trying to get a new house off us!!!If you cant pay on time she charges late fees.Im so over this place.The owner orders her staff around like puppy dogs,She gets young dancers to work for her so she has control to boss.She doesnt even like children.I say save your money or go somewhere else

Pros: nice dance instructors

Cons: owner is absent and non caring to students

.

they have a great promotion where you can try every class imaginable for free the first day. this makes it easy when you try to figure out what your kid is going to like. even better you are not obligated to register if they don't like it . i already told my sons friends about it. the teachers are so courteous. they made us feel so welcome. i really do wish my parents sent me to dancing school when i was a kid... for now i will have to live thru my son!

they let you try all classes the first day and there is no obligation if you don't register. i think it's a great deal. my son ended up loving it anyway. they also sell all the stuff you need which i really loved so i didn't have to go running all around town. the teachers i met really paid attention to my son and made him feel special. recommend them highly!

My kids are so happy to be dancing at Cathy's. Their show last year was just amazing; their costumes were beautiful and they have so much fun. They definitely missed their teachers and dancing in general over the summer. Glad to be back!

Pros: my kid loves the place

Cathy's Dance Studio has the potential to be a great studio IF you're willing to pay a string of expensive fees. Both my daughters were a part of the studio for 3 years. Besides the regular class fees, there is a mandatory costume fee, which is no less than $65 per class. Each of my girls were in 2 classes, so you can calculate the expense there. While the end-of-the-year performance is at a nice location, the show is not only too long (one of them was over 3 hours), but the Cathettes (made up of the teachers, assistants and some older students) are highlighted too much. The ticket fees are $25 per person, and you have to pay for the students that are part of the show, too. There are a number of parents who wait since the night before tickets go on sale to purchase tickets for the best seats, and on the Sunday morning when the tickets go on sale, it gets a little insane! Also, the picture fee that comes before the show is very costly. We've paid as much as $300 for our girls' pictures. The studio itself is very small and is often, especially on Saturdays, extremely packed, to the point that you have to stand or go outside. You can only see your children in class once a month for a few minutes. There are no monitors, like other studios, for you to see the classes. So what positive things do I have to say? The Director, Michelle, is very nice as well as most of the staff. They do their best to keep the chaos an orderly kind of chaos, making sure the parents are informed of everything they need to know ahead of time. Your children are safe there, and the instructors do try to get them to participate when they are shy or hesitant. If money isn't an issue for you, by all means choose Cathy's Dance Studio for your kids, but since our pockets don't run deep, we had to find a better, more affordable dance school.

My 2 daughters have been to other dance studios and I wasn't staisfied. Many years later and we're still a part of the family at Cathy's. My girls have blossomed into fine young ladies thanks to the encouragement and guidance of all the teachers and staff. Miss Michelle and Spiro are a wonderful example for all the kids. (They are the directors). Under their supervision every art detail is attended to with a fine and highly trained eye. THEY ARE FANTASTIC AND COULD MOST DEFINITELY TRAIN DANCERS FOR & DIRECT ON BROADWAY & STAR IN A SHOW THEMSELVES!!!! The secretary- Miss Erica- and her assistants- are always taking good care of us and the kids. If your child is absent they go as far as calling you to see if everything is alright. They sell all the dancewear, shoes, bags ... everything you need. It is so convenient. Well, what more can I say... My older daughter has received several dance scholarships for school because of the fine training she has received at Cathy's. They are so organized (almost to a fault). But, I don't know about you with all that my children have going on in their lives I don't mind it. So, if it is good training and a friendly school you seek for your precious liitle ones...head over to Cathy's. You may watch your kids grow up there.

Cathy's Dance Studio is a studio where one can learn and master many new dance skills. The staff environment is friendly and the instructors are professionals with skills and talent. Together both the students and instructors work in a dedicated committed environment. \r
This dance studio is the place to start and be part of. For over 52 years Cathy?s Dance studios and is encouraged to do so. The director once a child learned to dance in this studio. The director believes that everyone can dance. The students receive excellent training in tap, jazz, ballet, modern and acrobatics. At the end of the year a special show is held at the Manhattan Community College. Students perform and show their skills. It is a great show. Learning is joyful and educational. At Cathy's it is both. I highly recommend this school to everyone who wishes to learn how to dance. \r
Pros: Located in Astoria, Queens near subways and buses. Only 10 minutes to the City. \r

I danced at Cathy's for over 20 years myself and now my children dance there. The teachers and staff at Cathy's Dance Studio are incredibly talented, dedicated to their craft, and show a true sense of caring and respect for each and every boy and girl under their instruction. The show they put on at the end of each school year is just unbelievable. From the brilliant choreography to the breathtaking costumes - the exciting music and amazing performers, girls, boys, teens, and adults - it's just a complete evening of enjoyment from start to finish - hard to believe this awesome show is put on by the students and teachers from this seemingly unassuming little school in the heart of Astoria! Their tappers are unrivaled in the NY area. Their acrobats give a nail-biting performance year after year. Their classical and modern ballet are sheer elegance and grace. And their jazz and hip-hop is always fresh and original. Great school - I would recommend it to dancers of all ages, shapes and sizes!

Pros: Convenient Location, Professional Instruction, Cutting Edge Techniques

Cons: They should have more than one performance a year - it's hard to wait a full year for the next one!

I was one of the original students at Cathy's Dance Studio. All of my 4 daughters were students too. What makes this school so very special is the staff and the philosophy of the school. Everyone who wants to learn how to dance is encouraged to do so. The director beleives that everyone can dance. The students receive excellent training in tap, jazz, ballet, modern and acrobatics. At the end of the year a special show is held at the Manhattan Community College. Students perform and show their skills. It is a fabulous show. Learning should be joyful in addition to educational. At Cathy's it is both. I highly recommend this school to everyone who wishes to learn how to dance.

I have been attending the annual performance at Cathy's for about 15 years now. The teachers and staff are soooo professional and friendly, and they put on quite a show every year! The dancers are of all ages and levels of experience, but at Cathy's EVERYONE is a star! I believe their program not only offers the best instruction around, but it promotes self confidence and teamwork among the students. I would highly reccomend Cathy's for anyone who is a dancer or who aspires to be, or even for people just looking for a new experience. They have been doing what they do for over 50 years now, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!
