This school is great for someone who just simply wants to have fun and for those who don't want to learn actual technique. If you are going here for ballet, you're not going to get a full experience. Correct alignment is not emphasized and there are many aspects of barre and centre work that are missing. And the movements she does know are taught wrong. The same goes for tap where not only are the movements taught wrong, they are given the wrong names. Jazz and acrobatics however are fairly taught. There have been many of her students who are amazing acrobatic dancers. I heard Claudia herself tell my mother and I once that she kicked a student out because "she went to another studio behind [her] back". She gets personally offended if you think about leaving her for another school.

I have a good idea of what I am talking about since I danced here for 6 plus years. One summer I decided to go to a dance camp (Usdan) where I took a ballet class. The first day, I was rudely awakened to find out that the ballet I was learning from Mrs. Perri was not the ballet everyone else knew. I didn't go back to her studio afterwards. Overall, I would not recommend this school.

I would like to thank Ms. Perri for her time, dedication, experience, guidance and thoughtfulness. For the past ten years my wife has danced at this school. The Claudia Perri School of dance has a family atmosphere, she welcomes ??All? students of all ages. Each student is treated with respect, and Ms. Perri works with her students as individuals and as part of the family.
This woman teaches dance five days a week and puts in countless hours even after the studio door is closed. Good luck with your brand new studio?.Frank F

I started dancing at Claudia Perri School of Dance when I was 3 years old. I am now almost turning 19, that is 16 years of dedication to the studio. In all my years there, I've never seen as much disrespect as the time I eye-witnessed one specific case a few moths ago. In such a case, a mother trash talked the entire studio including young girls, Mrs. Perri herself, and myself. This mother did so to Mrs. Perri's face while the rest of us were just in the other room. Mrs. Perri doesn't just teach dance, she teaches life lessons, imperative for any girl (or boy) to grow into a woman (or man). I am the person I am today because of the leadership, pride, poise, and maturity I developed at Perri's. She may be old fashioned, but she's also inventive and always ready for new ideas. What I have there is a family, from the youngest girl to the oldest woman. I hope if you're reading this, you realize that it is a privilege to know and work with such a talented woman who opens her arms to every man, woman, and child.

Claudia Perri danced on BROADWAY and now has BROADWAY talent in her classes because of her ability to share her talents with a younger generation. This is the kind of school that teaches you not only dance but self confidence as well. It is honestly disgusting to see a review like the negative one below mostly for it's false content. Claudia Perry has a huge fan base and following for over 30 years because of the classes she teaches and the program she runs. Let's give credit where credit is due ... to the nasty peson who took the time to write such a mean spirited email I say this... good luck finding another teacher as talented and accomplished as MRS. PERRI .

Dear Anonymous P.

First of all lets start with your name "anonymous P" really? How cowardly is that? If you have the nerve to bad mouth people have the nerve to give your name don't hide yourself, people who hide themselves do so because they know that what they are writing is a lie and they are just a vindictive low life. I can guarantee that the reason you left the school is because you thought your child was the best dancer in the school and when they were not put right up front you had a little baby hissy fit!!! Perri never kicks anyone out so if you are no longer going to Perri's that is by your choice and yours alone! Both of my daughters go to Perri's and have been for the last 13 years and I would never go anywhere else. Perri is a VERY clean person and I don't know where the hell you went but the floors at Perri's are spotless always!! I also feel that compared to other studios Perri is very reasonably priced. So Ms. Anonymous P next time you have something to say why don't you just come down and say it to Perri directly and stop being a coward who hides behind LIES!!!!!!!! Your a bitter, bitter person and if anyone believes your review that would be a shame because their child is going to miss out on a wonderful dance experience!

All horrible reviews,
If youd like to judge the studio on how people are treated, join and you will see everything is completly false. Perri treats every students as a child of her own. She lets the older girls and women maake up their own routues as it wouldnt make sense for the young one to do that. The yoiunger children get to add their own little twists to their dances and have so much funny doing. I have been at the studio for a very long time and its amazing to see how much everyone has grown. The floors are always clean and the heat is always on!!! She would never tell someone they can not wear something, you are aloud to come in whatevr you feel like. Most schools have very strit dress codes but not here. The prices are amazing and she would work out a way to help if you feel yoiu can not pay on time or whatever you need. All the students work very hard and enjoy every minute of it. All though there are rough times at points they stick together and work through it. Claudia Perri School of Dance is like a second home for most of the girls. They come whenever they have free time or just need to get away knowing they are always welcome. The girls all bond and become very close. The older girls some" Perri Kids" teach the younger classes and the little children enjoy it. They all look up to each other and are always there for each other. Anonymous P that review was an aboslute lie and if you didnt like the studio why would you waste your time on writing that review and staying for so long. If you think the prices are high find somewhere that is cheaper and let us know! If you daughter was not liking the school it was most likely because she had done somthing terrible to the other students that cause them to treat her in such ways. She has even sentr students to try out for broadway plays. Her granddaughter is on call-back for the Billy Elliot play. SHe treis her hardest becuase this is waht she loves and likes to see the children succeed. Every time a child is in the studio for 10 years they do a "solo" They have a complete dance to themselves to show off all they can do. The babies do dances that they love!

Dear "anoymous p" lol
Well all I can say is your review is ridiculously false. If you didn't notice within the time your daughter danced here, we have just moved to an entirely brand new studio. A rule we have here is you can wear what you feel comfortable in; therefore we are allowed to wear sweatshirts although we don't have to because the heat is always on. Its possible your daughter felt the heat wasn't on due to lack of clothing..as for hiphop we as students have fun working with the privilege of creating our own style hiphop routines. The songs are not out dated and although some may be from past years they are all classics. Speaking of out dated, does the song "never gunna dance again" ring a bell?..we are no where near expensive having the chance to take four classes for the price of three. Including advanced acrobatics. although we do not offer classes that may portray to your daughters liking ..such as explicit dancing, we have classes that are fun for all ages.

First allow me to start off by saying I had Mrs. Perri as a child and now my sisters daughter has her. I watch how far she has come from last year to now (she was 3 when she started) and more importantly how much fun she is having. Mrs. Perri is OLD SCHOOL and if you can appreciate an OLD SCHOOL teacher who teaches old school fundamentals your child will learn a lot from her school. She has A HUGE HEART and a lot of love for what she does. I think bashing her on reviews is unfair as this is her LIFE and her passion shows through her love for the kids and the shows she puts on every year.

Let me just say that I previously posted under "Anonymous P", because I was a lot younger during the original post. Now that I am older, I'd like to rewrite the review, so you can all stop calling me a coward.

I stand by all of my previous statements. While Mrs. Perri had her nice moments, she was overall a very rude lady. She made fun of girls' weights, and made up sob stories in order to get people to join. The girls at Mrs. Perri's are very nice, but she is not at all.

She teaches techniques wrong, and I learned this quickly when I went to a new dance studio. It's one thing to teach differently; it's another to teach incorrectly.

If you're looking to make friends, I would go here. But Perri is a cranky old lady who kicked a girl out of a class as she was mourning the loss of a loved one.

For those who called me a coward, you no longer need to. I hope this review helps others.

In my search for the right school for my daughter's lessons, we tried the Claudia Perri School of Dance. While I thought the studio itself was nice enough and the curriculum varied, I found their prices to be much too expensive for us.
