"When my daughter, Susan, started taking dancing lessons at Royal Dance Works 28 years ago, I never dreamed it would have such a positive impact in her life. From the first eager but slightly awkward dance recital, to competing and winning national awards in New York, to becoming a professional dancer in a foreign country, she has gained the poise, confidence and skills that will last a lifetime. Royal Dance Works sets the standard for high quality instruction and has always taught her to strive for excellence. The studio has provided the essential encouragement to enable her to excel at something she loves. I can't think of a better way for a proud Father to watch his daughter grow and achieve." -- Kent Dana / Dance Parent and News Anchor, Phoenix CBS 5

"When I teach at Royal Dance Works, I am not only re-energized, but also challenged in a way that only a few studios can do. The dancers give more than technique... they give heart, and soul, something that is only found with the best of training. I can't wait for my next opportunity to work with them again."
