Maybe owners of other dance companies (Ellie M.) should focus on their current pile of issues before roaming the internet looking for ways to leave unimportant comments about a dance company she has NO knowledge of whatsoever. Instead of searching the internet for your competitors, you should be focusing on your studio and the train wreck that it is.

This studio has great marketing. If you believe all you are reading in these reviews, GOOD LUCK! The studio has great marketing, but is very limited in being qualified to produce dancers with proper training and skills.

Wildwood Dance and Arts is an amazing studio. When we moved back to St. Louis after living away for three years, I spent several days checking out all the studios in the area. Leah Cordiano-Siemens and all her instructors made us feel so welcome here. The not-for-profit dance company, DAC, is an extra bonus. The members of the company get many additional opportunities to dance for the public, including two shows yearly and many other events (Wildwood Days, Ballwin Days, etc). And because this isn't "competition" dance, the costumes are age appropriate and the cost is reasonable. My daughter's schedule is filled to the max with classes in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, pointe and the company class, but she is loving it and learning a lot! Thanks Leah!

My daughter is in her 2nd year at Wildwood Dance & Arts and we are extremely happy with all they have to offer. My daughter is not into ballet, tap, or even jazz as she takes drama and cheer/poms at this studio. She has also taken hip hop here as well and loved it. I love that they have so much to offer as it gives my daughter a chance to express herself and her creativity. The staff is wonderful and the teachers are patient and very good with the little ones. I enjoy watching her and her progress on the TVs in the waiting room.

Pros: variety of classes offered, great teachers

.

Moved her from Chicago and my children studied at a very professional dance studio. Be careful, as this school defiintely is not. We tried several studios before selecting a place for our two daughters and it is certainly not Wildwood Dance Arts. Unless you are a trained dancer yourself it is hard to know. Fortunately, I was a professional dancer myself and could see this place is not capable of producing quality dancers.

Pros: Building LOOKS good

Cons: Don't juge a studio by its' building

My girls took lessons from WDA for 3 years. The only reason that we're not doing lessons this school year is due to commitments to swim lessons. We hope to go back to dance next year and we for certain would choose WDA again. It is a wonderful dance studio. My girls learned a lot! It is extremely well run. The instructors are great with their students. Miss Leah is awesome! My girls always adored their instructor. I always felt welcome at WDA. It has a welcoming, warm, down-to-earth, professional atmosphere.

I like the dance rooms themselves, but you can only watch your child on TV screens, you aren't "invited" in to watch the class. The TVs are on the end of a long room where everyone has to walk through to get to the dance rooms, so it's not welcoming to sit and watch. It feels crowed with everything at one end of this good size room. So not the studio you want if you are wanting to watch each class. This means you can not help your daughter with her dance routine at home. On the plus side the staff is very nice, thoughtthey are never available to answer the phones during normal business hours, only evenings which is bothersome. This is our second year and I will continue until I find something as convenient but more parent friendly.

After 3 plus years dancing at Wildwood Dance and Arts I still find it absolutely amazing how Leah Cordiano-Siemens and her staff continue to challenge, support and develop each and every dancer that walks through the door. There isn't another studio around that offers such a wonderful well-rounded dance experience. This is the 2nd year my daughter has danced with their dance company , DAC. Not only has she continued to grow tremendously as a dancer, she has also grown as a caring, focused and committed team member, many times lacking in other studio's performing groups. We are delighted to be part of the DAC /Wildwood Dance and Arts family.

Cons: NONE!

Both kids - boy and girl dance HIP HOP at WDA and LOVE it! I literally have to drag them away. We have danced most types of dance there and the quality and attention and love of dance have been consistent across the board. Even mom has danced there and had a great time.

Pros: Great staff, dancers get along, older ones help younger ones, sense of team and family

After years at a neighboring studio I now know the difference between a studio and a GREAT studio! Every dancer gets the attention and instruction they need. We love being part of the WWD dance family and wouldn't dance anywhere else!

My girls have been dancers at Wildwood Dance and Arts and members of the DAC (Danse Arts Co.) since 2005/06. We originally started because they had the most reasonable rates around (and still do). Well, what a breath of fresh air we found with this studio! Leave your egos at the door, please. We are blessed with owners and teachers who stress hard work, teamwork, integrity, family values, professionalism-lessons that will remain with these kids long after they've hung up their dance shoes! I can't think of another place I'd want my kids to call their '2nd home'.

I first signed my daughter up for a hip-hop dance class when Wildwood Dance and Arts first opened. I chose it because it was close to home, and was very reasonably priced. As soon as she started dancing, I knew I had made a great decision. She absolutely loved everything about the studio and its staff; couldn't wait to get there, didn't want to leave.

When the studio grew, (and moved to a larger building) so did the number of classes and staff. I was afraid the warmth of the smaller studio would be lost amongst all the classes and teachers. I had no reason whatsoever to be concerned. The staff greets everyone who walks in with a smile and a warm greeting. The thing that sets Wildwood Dance and Arts apart from ANY other studio is the way the staff fosters friendships, respect for all dancers regardless of age, and a love for dance. The older girls are always so kind and sweet to the younger ones. I see classes of all ages performing for other classes that are held at the same time to "show off" what they have learned. And, I see nothing but smiles from parents and children as they enter and exit the building.

If you are looking for a dance studio that not only teaches dance, but nurtures the dancer as well, then look no farther than Wildwood Dance and Arts.

My two daughters confidence and self-esteem has grown under the respectful guidance of the caring instructors at Wildwood Dance and Arts. I highly recommend them to any family interested in dance!

Leah Cordiano-Siemens, owner of WDA and all her instructors are amazing. They give so much of their time an energy to each and every student. My daughter's dancing developed more in the past 2 years of dancing at WDA than she did dancing at another studio for the previous 6 years. I guess that says it all. Check out DAC, their dance company. They perform two shows a year at the West County YMCA as well as doing volunteer performances out in the community. Also come and see for yourself at the GRAND Opening of their huge new state of the art studio on August 25th! Check out their website for more information on the GRAND opening.

Wildwood Dance and Arts is the greatest dance studio around. The atmosphere provides all students the ability to build self-esteem, develop and grow as a beautiful dancer. The instruction is amazing, in fact my daughter's dancing improved more in the past two years of dancing at WDA than she did while dancing at another studio for the previous 6 years. I guess that says it all. How wonderful it is that Leah Cordiano-Siemens, owner of the studio and all her instructors take time for each and every student. Their dance company DAC also performs out in the community, how great is that!

I highly recommend this studio which is opening it's NEW location, one of the largest in the Metro area, on August 25th. Go by and check it out. It will be well worth your time.

The instructors here are fantastic! I just can't say enough about how wonderful they are!!! My daughter took a class when she was in first grade and her love for dance has grown exponentially! She can't get enough! Wildwood Dance and Arts is like a family. You feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. I'm sure we will be a member of this family for many years!

What a wonderful studio. The staff is so talented! WDA has filled a void that was in the West County dance community. Their production company is increditable what a group of talented young ladies.

The choregraphy that the teachers at this studio produce is some of the best I have seen in the area. You would think that this studio would very expensive, but it's not. The tuition is much more reasonable then other studios in the area. Their costume fees are also very reasonable. Their instruction is top notch, it does not lack in anyway.

Their production company which is a group of young ladies from 8 -18 years old performs 2 fee based public performanes a year. The shows are beautifully put together with wonderful choregraphy and beautiful costumes. They also perform at public venues through out the year. If you can catch on of their performances it is well worth your while!
