My daughter used to take ballet lessons from a local dance company here but she stop even before doing the first recital. She said that she isn't learning anything lol. I am glad that she did because I felt like the place was just a money pit. I did not see any progress or development to our daughter considering the amount we were paying for every month.
I wish that they could raise their standard like the ones that you get from the ballet classes in los angeles. It would be worth the money. We did not regret our decisions though because now, she love playing piano more than ever. Dance was not her calling but playing music instrument such as piano is.
