Worth the Commute from the Buffalo Area

Apr 15, 2021

When it became clear our daughter needed a more serious ballet studio we considered a number of options but from our first visit to the Draper Center we knew it was the right place for her. In the short time she has been at Draper we have seen tremendous growth in her technique. The teachers provide high quality instruction and give the feedback needed to help the students grow. From the staff to the teachers to the parents to other students, everyone in the Draper community has been kind, welcoming, and supportive. Despite there being studios closer to home, the education and environment provided at Draper makes it more than worth the commute from the Buffalo area. To quote our daughter – “Switching to Draper is the best decision I ever made.”
