My daughter has danced competitively at Martin for the past 5 years and has been part of the Sundown Optimist Baton Group for the past two years. Her dance/twirl family has become so important to her, even at such a young age! I am a former dancer myself, and have taken part in the Studio ’53 University/Adult Advanced Tap classes the past several years, too. I look forward to this class every week! We chose Martin because of the exceptional dance/twirl training we knew we would receive and we have stayed at Martin because of the relationships and friendships that we have formed! She loves walking through the studio doors because she gets to do what she loves with her best friends! MSD provides so much more than technical dance training – dance builds confidence and self esteem, provides an outlet for both physical fitness and mental well-being, fosters a sense of independence and maturity, and nurtures friendships.
