STAY AWAY FROM HERE!
Encore is not what it used to be. Unfortunately the owner fired her best teachers on March 1, 2011 and lied about it in a public letter, saying they were pursuing other opportunities. All the children enrolled are effected as almost all of the best dancers have left throughout the year due to physical and verbal abuse, threatening students, allowing the studio to become rancid with negativity. Also, the owner deliberately collected money for an upcoming competition on Friday Feb 25, or pay a $20 late fee. Then she cashed everyone's checks on Monday morning March 1, before we could stop payments on them. Then she fired all the teachers in the afternoon, and we are trapped into staying at the studio to save our competition fees, or leaving and losing all our money. The owner has been manipulative, cruel and lying to everyone. Do not go to Encore or you will lose more than your money, you will lose your kids dreams and their teachers.

All you have to do is look at the recent ratings to see how badly managed this establishment is. Our child has attended this studio for years but in the last couple of years the management has gotten out of control. Ridiculous fees, hidden charges an atmosphere of preferential treatment that has led to physical conflicts between students. Management does nothing to correct the problems in fact the only actions taken have further impacted the children negatively. The latest sign that the owner is the narcissist you see depicted here was the firing of three teachers during competition season. This left parents, who invested hundreds of dollars, without experienced and knowledgeable instructors... choreography fees, costumes bought, hours of paid rehearsals all wasted. You may think this an isolated incident, but not so, this the second year in a row that this type of folly has occurred. Sure a lot of money has been wasted but the point for you to consider is that management gave little or no thought to the impact on the children. Imagine your child, who built trust and attachment to a qualified instructor, and how they would feel. Yes many tears were shed and numerous parents withdrew their children. Now company routines need to be redone and we have two weeks until the next event. Imagine the stress this children feel. Furthermore ask where the older children are. This year we have lost every experienced dancer because of the abuse they have suffered at the hands of the studio management. Is this the atmosphere you want your child in? Run do not walk away from this hole. I promise you this is only the tip of the iceberg. The ownership has no business associating with children.
