Thank you for welcoming me into your studio as a new adult student of dance. Seven years later, I remain as excited as I was the first day, continually discovering new techniques, new forms of dance, new friends, new joy, and a new sense of accomplishment."
My daughter has taken jazz, ballet, and tap at PAL for the past eight years and she's loved every minute of it!. I have always been impressed with the talented instructors at PAL who know how to work with children of all ages. Through their talents and encouragement, I have seen my daughter develop a love of dance and positive self-esteem that will take her well into the future."
