I have danced at Esprit de la Danse my whole entire life. I started at around age 4 and ended when I was 17 when I left for college. I came back as many times as possible to drop in and say Hi and tried to catch the recital each year, even though I was no longer in it. I have so many amazing memories at the studio and can't say enough wonderful things about the instructor, Gay Tarabanovic, and the structure and fun she brings to each and every class. From all the technique I learned I went on to start the San Diego State Dance team, work for the United Spirit Association, judge multiple dance competitions, and coach a high school dance team. I would recommend this studio to anyone and everyone who loves to dance, wants to have a great time, and come away being a better well rounded dancer.

This is my 4th year at Esprit and my 4th year dancing.
I began when I was 15 years old and even though I had no previous dance training, Gay had faith in me and I quickly grew and matured as a dancer. Dance became my life.
Although I never took classes as a kid I have had the experience of being a student helper in kids' classes. The atmosphere throughout all levels is always very supportive and encouraging. EVERYONE can dance for the joy of dance. And everyone is encouraged to reach their highest potential, whatever it may be.
Before I started dancing, I was very shy and self-conscious. Dancing at Esprit brought me out of my shell and now nothing can bring me down because I always have a good dance class to go to.

I was a student at Esprit de la Danse for fourteen years. I started at age four, and finished when I graduated high school. Ballet was as much a part of my life as my academic education. In addition to learning, practicing and performing ballet, tap, modern dance, and tumbling, I developed qualities that make me the person I am today. As a student at Esprit de la Danse, I developed self-confidence, motivation, perseverance and discipline. I made life-long friendships with the instructor, Gay Tarabanovic, as well as other students in the classes. The dance instruction is professional and fun!

It is so much fun to get your toes tapping with a group of adult women! A great form of exercise for the body, and the brain. The studio caters to the group, learning new steps, review old ones and putting it all together into a dance that shows our new skills. Once a week, mid morning is a perfect time for this activity and between classes we find ourselves tapping our toes, practicing a step in line at the bank or grocery store. Put some excitement in your step by joining the class in this fun activity at a very resonable cost.

Esprit de la Danse did have dance competition teams for a few years, including 2005 when that review was written. They, however got cancelled because the person who ran the teams moved. Esprit de la Danse does have good dancers that other students can look up to. Apparently the other reviewer didn't take any classes at the studio and one cannot judge the dancing of the students by simply sitting in for one class. Esprit de la Danse does not prepare students for the professional world so you won't see people striving to become a part of the San Francisco Ballet Company or anything, but I have been to about 4 studios in the area, and I definitely prefer Esprit de la Danse. For without this studio, I wouldn't be where I am today.

Esprit de la Danse isnt the best studio out there. The teachers are nice and everything but the whole studio just doesnt cut it. They dont have any of those outstanding students on which others can look at and see what they need to work on, no one in the studio is really THAT awesomely good. They dont do competition or anything. They dont really have very advanced ballerinas, their point skills are no stage worthy. But if you are an older person eager to learn this could actually quiete well be the place for you.
