“Within two weeks, it was apparent that this was the place for her.”

Oct 10, 2023

Our daughter danced at a recreational studio for years and after attending several dance competitions, realized she wanted more. A friend introduced us to the Timothy M. Draper Center for Dance Education and encouraged us to sign her up for their Summer Intensive. Within two weeks, it was apparent that this was the place for her. Miss Fawn was her first instructor and welcomed her with open arms. We were concerned that she had a lot of catching up to do, but with guidance from her instructors and our daughter’s passion for dance, she caught up rather quickly and is evolving into a beautiful dancer. Let’s just say, we are on year 3 and we continue to make the hour drive each way!! The Draper Center has extremely knowledgeable instructors/choreographers, who preach proper technique and are invested in your child’s dance education. These students not only learn the art of dance, but also learn how to overcome challenges with grace, hard work, and determination.
