A waste of a Saturday morning that could have been spent with my child. The teacher was ok, The music was sooo loud. The lady that owns this place is only out for your money not to teach your child to dance.
The "ONE" bathroom is nasty and the so called "Lobby" is drafty and smells.
Please take the time to find something else and mark this one OFF YOUR LIST!

The worst studio - Can't go into to much details, but nothing good can come from joining this place. I wish I had sent my daughter some where else!

If you want your child to dance at a personal studio where the teacher actually knows his/her name and the classes aren't so full the students are packed into a room this is the perfect place! I have looked into any issues that were a problem in the past and they have all been corrected/addressed and the studio is fine. The teachers are all past students and are wonderful. In regards to the comments about students not knowing the dance, let's remember the teachers can only do so much if the student doesn't want to learn. All it takes is one time to observe during watch week and you can see how difficult it is to teach some of these kids. The teachers have great patience and I have seen them do their best to teach each and every student. I have had my child in the bigger local studios and none of them can compare to Dance Arts Academy.

first i would like to say i read the negative reviews below and any issues with broken floors or nails have been fixed so they are not an issue anymore. this studio is a great place to take your child for dance. the teachers are past students and do a great job in teaching. the kids like the classes and even though the recital is TOO long it does give the audience a chance to see the ability of dancing their child could reach if they continue to dance throughout the years with the performances of the teachers. this may not be the biggest studio in south san jose but it is by far the best. at least my child isn't crammed into a dance class with 30 students! how can they get any attention or corrections in a class that big!
definitely worth bringing your child here!

i do not know where to begin. Let us see,.... the classes were ok only that the kids were not learning anything and even the last week before recital the kids did not know their steps. And by the way, i am not talking about 3-4 years old. this class was 6-7 and up so definitely tha kids were capable of remembering the steps. the teacher very rarely tried to correct them, so if they rushed,jumped, walked wriggled acrossed the floor "they did a great job".

RECITAL ....oh yes! i wish i could tell this to every mom.
1. 3-4 hours long
2. rehearsal and recital the same day(CHEAP)
3. 55 some songs, 50 were teachers performances
4. scantily and shabbily dressed teachers, kept pulling down her micro mini shorts while dancing. I am fat, my mom is fat BUT we love to dance and KNOW what will look good on us ON STAGE .
5. 50 songs and performances of the SAME TYPE
6. abrupt song endings
7. no professional comparing
8. i can go on and on .... but in the end i am just glad i saved $30 not buying the recital DVD.
PLEASE IF U CAN LOOK FOR SOME OTHER DANCE SCHOOL, DO THAT!!

Pros: kids go somewher for one hour

Cons: unprofessional, timepass and waste of money

The annual recital is a joke. They only focus on the instructors performing not the students. The recital was 3 hours long with the instructors/ alumni performing 20 acts out of 54. Another 8 were their "star" students. Almost all the acts preformed by the instructors were the same lyrical dance to different songs. Even before intermission I had to keep leaving the auditorium when the teachers performed so I wouldn't gouge my eyes out before my daughter was on stage.

I cut short my girls' summer dance camp at Dance Art Academy after discovering a student was injured from stepping on a nail sticking out of the floor. Some nails were covered up with paper. The studio owner gave the explanation that this particular back room was not part of her permanent studios but just a rented space due to the summer camp overflow. She said they swept the floors before the camps began and they now "fixed" the nail issues by placing a wood block over one of the nails and removing the nail head that the other student had gotten hurt on. I hadn't gone back to confirm this but my issue is this; if knowledge of the nails existed by the fact they were covered up with paper, why would you even expose this potential hazard to young kids and continue using this room? Not a safe environment for the young students nor for the teenager instructors.

Lindsey is an amazing teacher..she is very patient with the students yet always knows how to get them moving!! Her singing voice is amazing! The studio has many classes like hip hop, song and dance, ballet, jazz, hawaiian, etc...If you are looking for a fun and professional environment for your children this is the place.

i went to this studio before for about 5 years. the floors were terrible, and people were always getting hurt because the floor would come off and it would pinch you. i scarred my hip on that floor.
