My daughter is in her 3rd year of dancing at MSF and just loves it. She has tried 3 other dance schools for various lengths of time and while the other dance schools have been nice (also to varying degrees!) as a shy girl she has never been totally comfortable. At MSF she has blossomed. She comes home full of adrenaline and eager to show us bits and pieces of what she's learned (she's 16 - what 16yo still does that??) MSF has that amazing combination of caring, nurturing family feeling, and challenging, energetic and just fun choreography. We love what it has done for our girl.
