“Draper fosters both his passion and his skill.”

Apr 15, 2021

My son, Ronan, learns, grows and dances at Draper. From the moment he auditioned to now, over 4 years at this point, he continues to look forward to class with all his instructors every day with a smile and an urgency to get to class. Dancing and ballet is his passion, and Draper fosters both his passion and his skill. They’ve helped him grow both in and out of dance, as his passion for learning rolls over into school, his personality shines, from a shy child to an outgoing and expressive person. He makes me a very proud father.

They care about him in his ability and about him like family. He has formed close friends with his fellow dancers, both boys and girls. As a result, we have close friends in the entire family. It’s a pleasure to experience the growth and see the results. It’s clear at every event who the Draper kids are… it’s no competition.
