From reading a review I just wanted to comment that it is common for dance studios to have an end of the dance year Recital to show case to parents, friends and family their child's accomplishments for the year. All studios, hire a photographer to come in and take dance pictures (it is usually up to the photographer what they charge for photo's) and all studios offer a recital program book (some charge for it and some hand it out for free). Those books btw can be printed @ Kinko's for $23.00 each! They will always offer business ad's and student ad's to help defray the cost of printing the book (and its a keepsake memory book). All studios hire someone to come in and film their recital and it costs about $35. for the DVD (fee charged by videographer). As far as costumes, most studio' s order them from a dance costume catalog and they can vary in price, so $60 is not surprising at all and a costume is ordered for each dance. The only fee's the studio pockets is tuition. Photo's, costumes, video's and recital venue are all charged by the supplier. All studio's pretty much will tell you all the fee's up front before you sign up for dance. This parent sounds as if they are new to the dance world. Ask questions before you sign your child up and you will be well informed. This is a good studio!

My daughter has been dancing at Karen's for about 3 yrs now. It has been time well spent. The Faculty has tons of experience , Degrees in Dance MGMt from different University and also have experience as Dancers with different professional Dance Companies. They know how to really educate the Students in different styles of technique and do this with encouragement . The atmosphere is one of mutual respect and the students and teachers really do like each other. This all makes a huge difference in ones dance education. If you are looking for quality in Dance , don,t hesitate to Visit Karen,s Studio. I,m confident you will have the same positive Impression.

We had our little boy take dance at Karen Kids Studio and we loved it. The staff is friendly and inviting. Miss Karen taught the class and the kids absolutely loved her. She knew exactly how to get them excited and yet she did a great job keeping the class in order. We would recommend Karen Kids Studio of Dance to anyone!

My daughter started here when she was younger. I have to say the owner is Top class she really knows what she's doing and the kids love it. I feel like it would be a safe place to take your child.

My daughters have dance at this studio for 10 years. I would not go to another studio. It is refreshing to me to see age appropriate dances being taught. The costumes are age appropriate also. This studio has recreational classes and competitive class. My daughters have been competing for 8 years and the director continues to hold a high standard even though many of the competitors are teaching dances that are not age appropriate. I really do appreciate this and would encourage you to enroll in this studio. This studio is like a family and very kid friendly.

I have the privilege of helping out with my granddaughter taking dance lessons. I am so pleased that she is attending Karen's Kids Studio of Dance. After seeing some of the dances that are being done from other studios in the area at competitions I know my granddaughter is in the right studio. Every dance is age appropriate and so are the costumes. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This studio is a family friendly studio. I highly recommend that you take a look at this dance studio.

My daughter went to this studio when she was 3. She was placed in an age appropriate ballet/tap combo class. I think it cost us $35.00 per month. (very reasonable!)

The teacher was very knowledgeable, kind and gentle. She was great with the girls.

My only complaint is at the end of the year, there is a big dance program right before summer. They expect all of the girls to come every night for at least a week (if not 2) prior to the performance, even the 3 and 4 year olds, which I think is expecting a bit much.
Also the cost of having your child in the program is very expensive. There is a costume for each the ballet routine and the tap routine, each costing $60.00 a piece. All of the girls had to have matching tights, matching bows on their shoes, matching hair deals, a T-shirt bought from the studio (to match everyone) for the grand finale.. All purchased through the studio..
Then there were programs, and they encouraged you to take out ads in the program. The smallest ad (about the size of a business card) was $25.
THEN there was the professional photographer that was brought in, and they wanted you to get pictures done in BOTH costumes, paying for a package in each costume..
AND if you wanted to be able to video tape the performance, you had to buy a copy of the DVD they created of it for $50.00. Thankfully we skipped out on the final performance, because it would have cost us at least $400.00. I think that is a little excessive for 3 and 4 year old children.

Aside from the cost of the final program, we really did enjoy using this studio and learned a lot from it.
